Ways to Serve

CAPC Soup Kitchen – Looking for a way to serve this Lenten season? Why not serve at our Tuesday Soup Kitchen? Meals served at 12 noon on Tuesdays, preparation begins at 9 am. Contact the church office to find out more or go to our website at

Knitters Unite! Elder Joan Pivnichny is organizing a knitting group to craft warm hats for our Soup Kitchen guests. Check out our bulletin, website or speak with Joan directly about how you can get involved in this project.
Blessing Bags - Blessing Bags are a great project for individuals, youth groups, companies that want to make a difference, and other groups of volunteers. Random acts of kindness which may seem so small to us can make a big difference in someone else’s life. Blessings Bags are one way to make just such a difference—and they’re easy! Items can be purchased at a dollar store and can be placed in a gallon plastic bag to be distributed at our weekly Soup Kitchen.
What to include? Here are some suggestions:
Thermal socks
Crackers, beef sticks, candy bars or other snacks
Toothpaste/Tooth brush
Fruit juice/water
Bags can be dropped off Sundays through Fridays 8-12 noon
