CPC Renovation Project Reminder

Building A’s renovation is well under way. Because of the work, many church activities are taking place in Buildings B (ES/MS) and C (HS). If you attend any activities that typically meet in the church, please check with the event organizer to confirm the location. The work is scheduled to be completed by mid-November.

PSF Priority: The Covenant Family

In Genesis 12, the Lord promises (or makes a covenant with) Abram, “I will be your God, and I will bless you, to be a blessing to the world.” God has chosen to use the covenant family as one of His primary channels of bestowing His blessings. So…what is a covenant family? It is believing parents, raising children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, who are in covenant with God and the covenant community, i.e. the church. If you are in Christ, you are under the covenant, and so are those in your immediate family. Part of your purpose is to bless others with the knowledge of salvation, which extends the covenant to others. CPA exists in large measure to be a picture of Christ to Nashville and the world. This blessing is offensive and defensive: we are here to actively build the Kingdom of God. We covenant, or pledge together, not just to educate our children, but also to equip our families to carry out this blessing. Our upcoming “Evening with David Thomas: “Being an Intentional Parent” on Tuesday, November 2 (at 7 p.m. in Fellowship Hall), will be an opportunity to help build the Kingdom, one family at a time. We hope you will plan to attend! – John & Angela Thompson, PSF Presidents, 2010-11

Elementary, My Dears: Scarecrow Dress-up Day

CPA's 1st-grade classes dressed up as scarecrows yesterday, wearing jeans, farm shirts, bandanas, cowboy hats, boots and other fun accessories (not to mention a few bales of straw stuffed in). Here's a group photo that captures some of the fun.

All Greek To Them: 7th Graders Celebrate

To culminate their recent study of ancient Greece, our 7th-grade students traveled to The Parthenon in Centennial Park on October 21 to participate in competitions of their own versions of "Olympic" games. The students then hosted a Greek Festival at CPA on October 22 for parents, performing A Day in the Life of Ancient Greece. This play included all of the students acting in a variety of roles based on the arts, philosophy, history, mythology, athletics and politics of ancient Greece—and on the apostle Paul’s missionary efforts to the Greeks in the first century AD. Students and faculty donned ancient-Greek attire and treated parents to a catered Greek meal. Students' own artwork based on the culture was on display as well. The unit enlightened students about the influence of all things Greek on multiple aspects of modern society and culture.
