Member’s Guide

The 2020 CPN Member’s Guide includes

  • the CPN purpose and vision statements and also a brief description of our history
  • some of the ways you are resourced and supported through your annual membership
  • 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. Why not work through these ideas with your team over the next year?
