This year on CPC Resources, we sought to bring you relevant, faith-based content that addresses areas of importance to you. We have shared original music, our flagship podcast (Equip), and hundreds of articles from more than 75 different authors. Our culture is constantly shifting its values, which is why CPC Resources has stood to remind you of the never-changing truth of God—applying it to topics like parenting, ethnic diversity, and stewardship.

Whether you’re wondering how to study your Bible, what God’s Word says about depression, or how to talk with your children about race, CPC Resources is here to intersect those questions with trustworthy and biblical media.

Thank you for reading, sharing, and interacting with this content. May the Lord continue to glorify his name throughout the earth through this digital ministry. We’ll see you in 2020!
