Do you have CPC in your congregation?

National Books Fund (NBF)
CPC reviews grant requests for books and publications from all over the world, especially for seminarians. Some funds are sent to seminaries to be used by seminarians that do not have a strong CPC presence from their home diocese. We currently do not have a strong CPC presence in this diocese, so our seminarians possibly benefit directly from this fund.
Miles of Pennies (MOP)
Begun in 1989, this separate fund is for children´s material only ~ birth to grade 12. CPC often makes grants to replace Sunday School materials lost or destroyed in disasters. Encourage your parishes to put out penny collection jars: a mile in pennies adds up to $844.80.
CPC Funds for Diocesan Seminarians
Sending a contribution to the Diocese for the Church Periodical Club enables us to send checks directly to diocesan seminarian to be used for books. In the past few years we've provided over $3,000 in assistance! Special thanks to those who contribute during the Diocesan Convention.
CPC Support for Diocesan Materials
Help get the word to people in the pews. Gifts in this area will be used to expand the circle of knowledge about CPC throughout our diocese to increase the gifts to the various CPC ministries.
