Sunday, March 15 event

After worship on Sunday, March 15, there will be a Silent Auction to kick-off CHPC’s next trip to Guatemala June 25 – July 3, 2016. Please join us in the Choir Room, just behind the front of the sanctuary, to learn more about the trip, bid on Guatemalan items, enjoy Central American-style refreshments and photos and music from past trips.


Many of the creative handmade items to be sold were brought to us by our partners when they visited last October. Others have been donated by church members who have gone on our previous trips. Many items would make wonderful gifts for birthdays, Mother’s Day or another special occasion, or could be used to decorate your home. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Guatemalan Partnership. 


This next trip, like our first one, is being planned for both adults and older youth. Between now and then, we plan to provide a variety of ways to learn more about the partnership and to support this all-church mission project whether you travel or not. If you have questions about the partnership, please email Perry Chang at or call him at cell 457-7833 or at home 812-913-4313. If you have Guatemalan items you would like to donate for the auction, please contact Soni Castleberry at or 417-6481.


The next planning committee meeting will be Saturday, April 4 from 11:00 am – 12:30 pm. Place to be announced. Anyone interested in the partnership is welcome to attend. We always need new ideas and perspectives.
