Friendship Dinner

Saturday, October 7, 2017, 6 pm

Due to the flood and all of the issues and changes to "life as usual" it has created, we are moving the Women's Friendship Brunch to a 6 pm Friendship Dinner this year on Saturday, October 7. We are inviting the Samaritan's Purse volunteers who are housed in our church building to join us. We will provide all the tablecloths, table settings, and centerpieces to keep everything as simple as possible. We will have a catered BBQ dinner and ask our ladies to provide desserts. Our speaker, Darla Baerg, will still speak on Shining Your Light and will share the Gospel. Ladies who want to invite your friends and neighbors are still welcome to. Please register below:


Online registration is now closed. Questions? Contact

Ministry Opportunity

Our Friendship Dinner ministry opportunity is focused on supporting the ongoing partnership between CEPC and Cedar Brook Elementary School. As we work to sustain and strengthen that partnership, investments of time and resources can be used in a variety of ways. Susie Moore will go into more detail about the development of our partnership with Cedar Brook, the “heart” behind the partnership, and the opportunities available for supporting and blessing the students and staff. Donations of any size are appreciated. A table will be set up at the dinner with additional information.

About Our Speaker

Darla Baerg is a master communicator and storyteller. She turns scripture, her love for the Lord and her real life experiences (many of which are hilarious!) into powerful messages for women. People are drawn to Darla’s joyfulness, transparency and ability to honestly share God’s word. She is a regular speaker at women’s retreats, luncheons, dinners, conferences, MOPS groups and camps. She incorporates the hope and joy of Christ into her rich messages, and you will leave feeling more inspired to fulfill whatever assignment God has for you…be it wife, mother, friend or co-worker.

Darla holds a Communication Specialist degree from Baylor University and a Masters Degree in Communication from the University of North Texas. In addition, she has a Masters Degree in Human Resource Development from Vanderbilt University.
