Connor Lowery '08, a former CPA football standout who also played at Samford University, delivered a strong devotional message to the current Lions after their Thursday practice. Connor (pictured with several of CPA's coaches, and also speaking to the team in the locker room) set multiple records while at CPA and was known as a strong leader. Speaking of our initials, Connor -- a double-major college grad in accounting and finance -- is currently pursuing his Certified Public Accountant (CPA) license with plans to join the accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers. Thanks for coming back to inspire some of our students, Connor!
Middle-School Drama Club 2012-2013
Interested in acting? Designing? Directing? Drama Club is a place where students get to explore all of that and more! Join the group (no experience necessary!) with after-school activities in theatre games, comedy improv, audition tips, scenes and monologues. Each year, the club attends a show in the city and serves at a local organization. (Last year’s service was at Y.E.S. playing theatre games with the after-school program for underprivileged elementary students.) Start-up is after Willy Wonka Junior and Fall Break. Sixth-Grade Drama Club begins Monday, October 22, and meets each Monday from 3-4 p.m. Seventh- and Eighth-Grade Drama Club begins Thursday, October 18, and meets each Thursday from 3-4 p.m. Club fee is $30. Both clubs meet in the Middle School theatre/dance room. For more information, contact Ms. Jennings at .
Middle-School Art Club
Art Club is a great time to join friends after school, use your creativity, and delve into new projects with paint, colored pencils, pen-and-ink, and sculpture materials. Open to all students in grades 6-8, Art Club will also feature special workshops with professional artists, and opportunities to encourage others with your creativity. Come to the Art Room on Tuesday afternoons from 3-4 p.m. Club supply fee is $30 per semester. For more information, contact Ms. McFadden at .
Pause to Pray Verse for Monday, II Corinthians 4:4-6
At noon each Monday, we encourage the CPA community to Pause to Pray. Monday's verse is from II Corinthians 4:4-6:
"Remove the veil from (child's name)'s eyes so that he/she can see the light of the gospel. Shine your light in his/her heart to give him/her the light of the knowledge of your glory in the face of Christ."
Stop by the Roar Store on the first floor of the Middle School building to see our new CPA car flags, which just arrived and are on sale for $15 each. Get them while you can, as there is a limited supply.
If your family is looking for a church home, we would welcome you as our guest at CPC. Please visit christpres.org for Sunday classes, worship times and other info.
Join us for CPC's Party on the Lawn at noon this Sunday, August 26. The festivities will begin immediately following the 10:45 Worship Service, with live music, local food trucks and an All-Meat Grill Off. For more details, please visit christpres.org.
