Here's the plan:
INTERNATIONAL DAY 2020 is around the corner! Festivities will be Sabbath, September 19 beginning with our VWE, which will include a virtual version of our legendary Parade of Nations and dynamic music from Higher Calling and the CPC Band! The celebration continues at 2pm with a Car Decorating Challenge and Drive-Through Meet & Greet the Warfield family at CPC, which will also be live-streamed, hosted by our own Jermaine Assent. Immediately following these festivities, there will be a socially distanced, “in-car” celebration and fellowship time at the Del Ray Baptist Church parking lot.
