Orangeburg Missions Trip

Dear CPC Friends,

Thank you so much for your support of our trip to Orangeburg!  What a wonderful time our Team had serving together, and serving alongside Pastor JP Sibley, his family, and the members of New City Fellowship.  

Serving together as a team on various New City facility maintenance projects and leading a family VBS outreach was a great privilege for us... and a lot of fun!  
  • The facility projects included: (1) cleaning out a storage area damaged from a roof leak; (2) installing a chain-link fence for a play area; (3) cleaning/sealing picnic tables; (4) cleaning out an “abandoned” home that will be used to house those in need; (5) replacing light fixtures at the Rise Ministry building, a ministry that will help men overcome addictions and become financially independent and followers of Christ; (6) spraying the church facility for bugs -  (Thanks Rotie!);  and (7) general cleaning of the church facility in preparation for the VBS.  The kids jumped right in with the adults on the cleaning chores and had so much fun!!
  • VBS: The VBS team spent a lot of time preparing for the VBS sessions that occurred on Thurs, Fri, and Sat evenings.  This included learning songs and skits to help communicate the lessons and planning fun activities.  What great helpers the kids were!  There were about a dozen visitors who came to the VBS, (kids and parents), and all were very positive about the experience.  Please pray that the Lord would draw them to Himself and into New City.  

In closing, our Team was so thankful for the opportunity to participate with New City Fellowship in building God’s kingdom in Orangeburg.  We hope to return to Orangeburg not only to meet needs and bring encouragement to our sister church but also to help our church grow in our vision to follow our Lord’s command to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19).

Thanks again for your support of this effort!
