What is CPC Connect?
CPC Connect is the online community at Central Peninsula Church, which is designed to further connect our church family outside the normal Sunday morning services. It provides church staff, leaders and all those who regularly attend CPC with the necessary tools to communicate and interact with those they are in ministry with by increasing the number of touch points throughout the week. If you call Central Peninsula Church your home, please either create an account or login. When you login, you will be able to see your profile information, the groups you participate in, your giving record, events you may be interested in and again an easy way for you to communicate within the groups you are involved in. In updating your profile you are able to provide CPC with your most up to date information so we can effectively and efficiently communicate with you. You are also able to add a picture, update family info, share with us your spiritual gifts, passions, abilities and much more.
Is my information private and safe on CPC Connect?
Privacy for most is a huge concern, as it is for CPC. Although our website is public, CPC Connect is private, meaning only those who have administrative privileges, those in our body who you have approved as a ‘friend’ and those you interact with within groups you belong to can view your information. Your information will not show up on a public search. Additionally, anyone with a CPC Connect login is able to customize what information is shared and with whom in editing your profile. By default we have set our privacy settings conservatively. We take the privacy and safety of your information seriously.
How do I use CPC Connect?
The best way to know what CPC Connect is about is to try it out. You can easily interact with those in your group, give online, search and register for events. We hope that you will use our online community to get better connected at CPC.
What are the guidelines for use?
