The offices of elder and deacon are given to Christ’s church in order to provide oversight and leadership for local congregations. The leadership of CPC seeks to serve the Lord by caring for his flock at Cherokee. The Lord has called our officers to use their gifts to further His kingdom, and CPC is blessed by their service.
