- an updated list of the CPN team so you can contact us anytime
- some thoughts and ideas to help you think about how your playgroup can be intentional in being a place where your playgroup families have connected with your church and where they feel they belong; and where families can grow into an even deeper sense of belonging—to the playgroup, the church and to God.
