In Our Community
Jesus calls us to love our neighbor as ourselves. People in our community are hurting: financially, physically, spiritually and emotionally. CPC partners with a number of organizations whose mission it is to alleviate that hurting. By helping to bring hope to those who are too hungry to hear, too tired to speak and too oppressed to find joy, we show Christ’s love to our neighbors.
Casa de Amistad
Since 1997, Casa de Amistad has served children and families in coastal North County San Diego through education and mentoring programs. Its academic mentoring program has grown from serving 3 children on its first night to serving over 260 children and their families annually.
Over the past two decades, teachers in participating North County school districts have seen improved grades among Casa students, and 100% of students from Casa de Amistad’s graduating high school class of 2020 have enrolled in post-secondary education. In helping to overcome barriers to education, we are empowering these students and transforming a new generation of leaders in California.
Banding Together's mission is to bring music opportunities to individuals with special needs. Changing the lives of individuals with special needs through the power of music.
Women in our congregation gather on Friday mornings at 9:00 to create layettes for the babies born to military families serving in the San Diego area.

CPC is proud to be part of the Interfaith Shelter Network, a collaborative effort by local congregations, human services agencies and government entities to provide shelter, services, and resources to homeless San Diegans throughout the region.

Community Resource Center/Interfaith Community Services
These two non-profit agencies were formed in 1979. Services provided by CRC in Encinitas include food programs, housing assistance and comprehensive domestic violence services throughout the north county coastal communities. ICS in Escondido provides similar assistance, along with veterans' services to north county inland. CPC supports both agencies through weekly volunteer activity in the CRC food bank and regular donation drives.
