A Note of Appreciation
The Board of Elders want to offer their heartfelt thanks to all those who volunteered their services to Cedar Park Church over the past year. We know that God provides for His Church by giving various gifts to equip His people for the work of service to build up the body of Christ, and we are so thankful that you have willingly used your gifts for this purpose. “Under His direction, the whole body is fitted together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.” (Eph. 4:16)  May we continue to work together in unity to see that Cedar Park Church remains active and vital in furthering the Kingdom of God in our community.
