Have a Heart for Haiti

We have a team from CPC visit Haiti to provide support through VBS, medical caregiving or building. This is a partnership with Haiti Outreach Ministry. In 2011, CPC made a commitment to sponsor an entire class of Haitian children from pre-school through high school.

Time Commitment: One full week in the Summer or Fall

Contact: Please watch the bulletin for the next Mission Trip opportunity

Operation Christmas Child

Every year CPC partners with Samaritan’s Purse to help children in 130 countries experience God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child.

Time Commitment: This can be done on your own time. Fill a shoebox and drop it to the CPC Office.

Contact: Please watch for the sign up pamphlet available in November each year.

The Gartrells

First appointed to mission service with the PC(USA) in 1990, the Gartrells have now served in five different regions of Brazil. Gordon and Dorothy are helping the United Presbyterian Church of Brazil expand its witness. They aid church growth efforts, help develop plans for church planting, and train people for ministries in evangelism and church growth. Much of their training content is focused on outreach efforts in rural areas and with youth.


In 2015, they were again transferred to a new location in Mangabeira, where they serve a congrega-tion of the United Presbyterian Church of Brazil (IPU). Their recent report is full of good stories of the growth of the church both physically and spiritually. They are in need of prayers and support for their ministry.

Larry and Inge Sthreshley

Serving in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Larry and a staff of about 30 people implement Project ASSP. The project’s goal is to work with the government, churches and the community to develop a resilient health care system that provides affordable health care and preventive services to 8 million people in five provinces of the country. The project addresses issues such as health infrastructure, primary health care, malaria, water and sanitation, vaccinations, nutrition, family planning, HIV, and gender violence. It also does some limited work in agriculture.
