Volunteer at CPC

At CPC there are plenty of opportunities to use your talents, follow your passion or just dig in and help get things done.  We always welcome anyone with a desire to serve the Lord by serving others, anyday, anytime.

On Sundays



Music is a vital part of worship at CPC.  Our two morning services have different styles of music:

  • At our first service you’ll listen to contemporary, upbeat praise & worship songs

  • Our second service appeals to those who love the hymns sung by generations before us.

  • Each service features excellent instrumental music as well.

Guest artists renowned all over San Diego perform at CPC in our annual concert series, and special performers at Christmas and Easter lift our souls in those special seasons.

You’re invited to be part of the wide variety of musical offerings to praise & worship God here! If you are a soprano, alto, tenor, or bass; can play woodwinds, brass, strings, guitar or percussion consider joining:

  • Praise team

  • Praise band

  • Jubilate Singers Choir

  • An occasional vocal or instrumental ensemble

Contact our Music Director, Oleg Shikunov for more information.

Prayer Support

Prayer is an integral part of our building a life in Christ. It is also a way to make a difference in the lives of others. The Bible shows us several ways to pray; in large settings, in small groups and alone.  Our prayer ministry offers those opportunities to our congregation.

  • Our Prayer Chain is a group of individuals who receive routine and urgent requests via e-mail.  Members pray and offer thanksgiving as indviduals as their schedule permits.

  • Worship leaders  participate in our Sunday worship services, reading scripture and offering prayer.

If you are a prayer warrior, contact the church office about joining one of these teams.
