CPBC Month of Prayer

January will be the month of prayer for Crofton Park Baptist Church. Please listen for more details during the service tomorrow.

Chance for Childhood - Thank you

Olive would like to thank all who have continued to give their small change to support Chance for Childhood. Just to let you know that she is still collecting and Sue Dickson is coordinating on her behalf, so keep the change coming. It is getting harder to raise money this way due to the increasingly cashless society so your efforts are much appreciated.
