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.

La Mirada Academy

CPC has adopted La Mirada Academy, a grade school in San Marcos with a large number of students living near the poverty level.  We provide food for kids to take home on the weekends, school supplies at the beginning of the school year, and one-on-one tutors.

Interfaith Shelter Network

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.


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 joins North County Presbyterians in reaching out to homeless veterans, providing household items and furniture needed to move veterans and their families into subsidized housing with support services.

Armed Services YMCA

Our proximity to Camp Pendleton provides opportunities to support men and women in the military.

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.

Communion Sunday Outreach

On the first Sunday of each month we often gather food, diapers, or other needed items for one of the many community organizations that make a difference in people's lives.

San Diego Blood Bank

Periodically throughout the year, Christ Presbyterian Church hosts the Bloodmobile of the San Diego Blood Bank.

New Day Urban Ministries

New Day is a Christ centered organization ministering to the poor and homeless in urban San Diego since 1968.
