Taking Care of our Local Community
The Senior Nutrition Program is to serve healthy, fresh, nutritious, low-cost meals to Seniors ages 65 and above in a safe environment. We provide lunch every Tuesday and Thursday at 12pm on our Merrychase Campus. A $3.00 donation is suggested but no one will be turned away. If you have any questions please feel free to stop by the church office or give us a call.
We have a program to help single moms and families who are struggling with homelessness or are at risk of losing their housing. Our goal is to provide housing assistance, spiritual encouragement, mentoring, and sometimes job training or coaching. All funds for the ministry are provided by Men of the Foothills Men’s Ministry, and their annual fundraising efforts.
Adopting a family for Christmas is an amazing opportunity to provide gifts for families who may not have the means to provide any themselves. Once we are notified of a family in need we can get them an application to fill out their information and then pass it along to a Home Fellowship group or family. This process can be confidential if necessary. If you could use a little extra help this Christmas or know someone who does, or if you would like to adopt a family, please contact Pastor Dillon.
Human trafficking is a huge and growing problem here in the United States, with a large amount of activity occurring here in the Sacramento area. We have partnered with Courage Worldwide in order to help fight this horrible crime. Courage Worldwide is an local organization that helps rescue girls (they have a strong partnership with the FBI), provides a home for them (called Courage House), and provides education and programs to help them restore their lives.

…and unto all nations…
We have developed a partnership with Alliance workers living in Tres Cantos, Spain. The Westegrens put on several events designed to create and develop relationships with the families in the community. Events like Thanksgiving dinner, Valentines Day dinner, English Camp, and youth groups are all ways that the Westegrens are serving the families of Tres Cantos. We have sent teams to work at the English Camp for three summers now and look forward to sending more teams in the future.
South of the border is also a thrust for the CPD in that it is a great way to “get your feet wet” in missions and relatively inexpensive. Over the past few years we have been developing a Ministry Base just over the border. We are now extending invitations for senior pastors, youth pastors and church missions leaders/teams to come and see what is happening there. We believe this Base will provide a great opportunity for people of all ages to experience doing missions in a place that is safe, inexpensive and not too far from home.
