Shepherding Communities

At CEPC, we want you to know who your elders are. They’re not just administrators of the church, but shepherds of the flock. That means they call you to check in on you, to pray with you, to care for you, and to be people who can point you to God’s Word when problems happen. In that spirit, each of our elders teams with our deacons to provide care for the entire congregation. Here’s how this works at CEPC:

Shepherding Community Map

We’ve divided our congregation into 6 Shepherding Community Regions. Each one has 2 Ruling Elders and a Deacon. See which one you live in:
