1 cul ti vate (verb): to foster the growth of CHRIST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH MINISTRY YEAR SNAPSHOT

2 Christ Presbyterian Church first took root more than sixty years ago with an INVITATION. Person by person, house by house, the invitations multiplied... and became the heartbeat of who we are. CPC believes we are called to extend the invitation of Jesus to invite others into a relationship with the God who loves us beyond measure, restores the broken, and changes lives. God continues to sow seeds in our community near and far. Take time to look back over the harvest God has cultivated in , and let s celebrate His goodness! CULTIVATE THANKFULNESS. Let the Word of Christ the Message have the run of the house. Give it plenty of room in your lives... Let every detail in your lives words, actions, whatever be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way. - Colossians 3:15-17

3 HIGHLIGHTS At the Summer Block Party, CPCers consumed: 17 GALLONS regular coffee 1 GALLON syrup 10 GALLONS nitro coffee 30 LBS. pancake mix 6 GALLONS lemonade 800 sausages WE LOVE TO EAT! WE LOVE TO SERVE! We have countless ushers, greeters, memorial service volunteers, van drivers, musicians, pew straighteners, mentors, meal servers, deacons, and elders who give their time and talents to our community. ARMS (Active Retired Men Serving) volunteered approximately 250 hours to keep our church beautiful and running in top order this year, especially during the busy season of construction. 3,300 gifts were donated for our Joy of Giving event last Christmas. WE LOVE TO HOST! There are 87 different groups, both internal and external, who meet at CPC each week. And we have 2,000 non-cpcers who utilize our facility on a weekly basis throughout the year! WE LOVE TO BUILD! After committing to updating and expanding CPC s facilities, our generous congregation pledged almost $12M to the Invited Campaign. Construction began June 2017, and our building reflects our commitment to extend the invitation of Jesus to friends old and new. BIBLE STUDY FELLOWSHIP has 500 women and 250 children in our building weekly!

4 KIDS + STUDENTS CARE MINISTRY SNAPSHOTS 580 infants-5th graders enrolled in weekend programming Our newly renovated rooms are going to good use Sunday school attendance at 9:30AM has more than doubled in Fall 2017! 530 6th-12th graders enrolled in Wednesday programming 273 kids learned about Jesus in summer kids camps 63 6th-12th graders served on 4 mission camps/trips and 254 attended 3 summer camps We have 300 active Lay Care Ministers LC Ministers are trained to encourage, support, and provide tangible acts of service to the hurting in our community In 2016, 31 memorial services were hosted for members, 20 for non-members Average Edynamoes attendance: 115 Edynamoes, a monthly educational and social event for our seniors, celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2018! 4 ANNUAL REPORT 2016/2017

5 MISSIONS ADULTS 54 CPCers went on GO!Trips to Nicaragua, Jamaica, Southern US, and Israel/Palestine We have 10 local and 14 global mission partners, including TreeHouse, Opportunity International, and World Vision 709 people participate in small groups We have 285 people in 7 Sunday Communities Over 1,277 women and friends attended 2 Women Who Inspire events 71 new members joined CPC MINISTRY SNAPSHOTS This year, we gave $1,065,629 to our mission partners Out of 125 women in Mom s Morning small groups, 27 are new this year 1,500 bowls traveled from Nicaragua to Minnesota for our Lenten worship series The bowls were handmade by Nicaraguan artisans in Opportunity International s microfinance program THE REASON we wanted to form a small group was because we were missing the community piece of our faith. Jay and I feel this is so important there s only so much spiritual growth you can do on an island. To have that community element has been so impactful... we all find different and unique things from the Scripture we re exploring. That has been instrumental for me in deepening my faith and expanding my knowledge of who Jesus is and what He s done for us. - Suzanne Bostwick, CPC member

6 WORSHIP GIVING MINISTRY SNAPSHOTS 4,428 CPCers and guests attended Christmas services Over Holy Week, 5,594 people attended multiple services 228 Christmas poinsettias and Easter lilies were delivered to our seniors In the 9:30AM service, we sang 211 hymns 345 singers and musicians were involved in leading worship Invited campaign pledges: $11,666,094 Invited pledges received so far: $7,0071, giving units for Invited Services were watched over Livestream 16,770 times Worship in 2017: Christmas + Easter Offerings = $232,971 Out of 581 Ministry Fund giving units, 35 were new to giving 6 ANNUAL REPORT 2016/2017

7 TO CULTIVATE FAITH: this is the core of our mission as a local church. WE WANT TO BRING PEOPLE INTO RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS TO KNOW HIS LOVE AND GRACE, AND TO CULTIVATE AN ABUNDANT LIFE THAT IS ROOTED AND FLOURISHING IN HIM. How have we cultivated faith this year? THROUGH RELATIONSHIPS We are committed to teaching God s Word and learning together how we can live and share the Gospel. Our small groups and communities foster vibrant opportunities to grow spiritually. The gift of God s forgiveness and grace is worth sharing! We are committed to cultivating opportunities like our Summer Block Parties to build interaction both inside and outside CPC s walls. We want to demonstrate care and love for others who might never come for a service, so CPC offers a variety of different ministries and programs: hospital visits, Women Who Inspire, Grief Recovery, Single Parent Family Ministry, etc. THROUGH PARTNERSHIPS CPC has rich partnerships with local and global ministries that are committed to bringing much-needed resources and the hope of Christ. We are committed to growing the Church. Our Christmas Offering went to Lighthouse Church, a new church plant in North Minneapolis. The Table, our Sunday evening service, launched in September in South Minneapolis. THROUGH KIDS + STUDENTS Kids and students continue to be a main priority of our mission and purpose. We want all of our children to develop a lifelong relationship with Jesus! We know through research that for faith to really stick, kids need positive adults invested in their spiritual growth. 71 young adult mentors lead high school students weekly. THANK YOU, GOD, for cultivating in us a heart for invitation and a love for those who don t know You yet. May we continue focusing on Your Word, Your promises, and Your path for CPC s future.
