Mission Partner Support Opportunity
The CEFM Network (formerly Catonsville Emergency Food Ministries) is having a fundraiser sponsored by Applebee’s Restaurant on Route 40 in Catonsville on August 14 from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. It is called a Flapjack Fundraiser. Tickets are $7 per person and $4.50 for children and it is all-you-can-eat. Most of the ticket price goes to the CEFM Network. You can buy tickets directly from the CEFM Network, any of the board members, or you can pay at the door. President Richard Hiteshew has tickets, so if you would like to buy some in advance, please mail your check–made out to CEFM Network–to Richard Hiteshew, 611 Oak Hill Road, Catonsville, MD 21228. You can also contact Richard on 410.788.8811. Thank you in advance for your support.

Blessings in a Backpack!
The Board of Deacons has begun the 2010 Backpacks for Success campaign in partnership with Catonsville Emergency Food Ministries (CEFM).

CEFM has promised 100 families that it will fill their children’s backpacks with new school supplies. To help CEFM honor that promise, we, as a congregation, have committed to fill twenty backpacks for 10 high school, 5 middle school, and 5 primary school children.

For those who do not wish to shop for school supplies, checks would be greatly welcomed. Please make checks payable to CPC with “Backpacks for Success” on the memo line.
