Prayers for Peacemakers, April 3, 2013


  Epixel* for April 7, 2013


But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than any
human authority. The God of our ancestors raised up Jesus, whom you had
killed by hanging him on a tree.”                                       -Acts 5:29-30

Will you host a dinner party for CPT?

CPT really needs your support in raising $10k in September. Unfortunately, we are behind our financial targets and need your help. We want to dedicate the month of September to bringing people together around the dinner table. You can choose the date, who you invite and what you cook (though our teams have some great recipes prepared!) We’d love to hear if you’d be interested. 

There’s no commitment needed at this stage.
