Mary & Martha Ministry (Women in the Church)
M&Ms is an organization that includes all women who are members of CRPC and regular attendees. Its purpose is to encourage and equip women to know Christ personally, to glorify God in their lives, homes, church, community, and be committed to spreading the Gospel.
M&Ms hosts various functions throughout the year to serve and encourage the women of the church including brunches, showers, Christmas decorating, and retreats. M&Ms are currently sponsoring a Titus 2 mentorship program open to all women. There are numerous opportunities for women to grow spiritually through Bible studies, women’s Sunday school classes, missions trips and small groups. Service opportunities include teaching, nursery, meals, and various local charity partners.
Men’s Ministry and Fellowship
Our goal is to establish stronger personal relationships among the men of the church, and to promote spiritual leadership by men, both in their homes, and in the church. We also seek to demonstrate God’s love to our church family and our community through Christian service ministries.
To establish stronger personal relationships among the men of the church, we have activities that include:
-The fellowship of the CRPC Men’s Softball Team
-A monthly Men’s Saturday Breakfast. Each breakfast includes a short devotional or testimony.
-We also reach out to others in our fellowship by phone calls and visits.
To promote the spiritual leadership of men:
-We have several men teaching Sunday School and leading small groups.
-Our men continue to be faithful in the ministries of ushering and offering counting.
To share God’s love with our church family and community through Christian service ministries:
-Several men have volunteered their time and talents doing jobs around the church and at church member homes.
-Several of our men continue to be involved in the Cumberland Valley Christian Radio Station, Project SHARE, Capital Area Pregnancy Center and the Carlisle Truck Stop Ministry, Inc. including: Serving as Board Members and organizing fund raising events; Conducting the Sunday morning worship services at the Truck Stop trailer.
CRPC offers a number of opportunities for those with the gift of music to use it for service to the glory of God. These include the Westminster Choir (adults and teens) who sing at the 10:45 am services September through May and also various soloists, small vocal and instrumental groups.
Prayer & Bible Study
Various small group Bible studies meet on a regular basis throughout the Carlisle area. See our complete list under Bible Studies or contact the church for times and locations.
Sunday School classes are offered each Lord’s Day for all grades from 3 year-olds up through adults. Adult classes focus on Bible books, Reformed theology, Christian living and Bible and Christian personalities.
Ruling Elders of CRPC are assigned a number of member families and serve as their special flock shepherd. The flock shepherd prays specifically for their families and visits with them on a regular basis in order to encourage their spiritual growth in Christ and help them find and use their spiritual gifts.
CPRC offers a vibrant worship in spirit and truth, featuring a blend of traditional and contemporary music styles, with systematic preaching of the Word of God, the Bible, in both morning and evening worship services.
