Sunday, November 7: All Saints’ Communion
  9:00 a.m. Contemporary Worship
10:45 a.m. Traditional Worship
Scripture  2 Timothy 1:3-7
Sermon    A Universal Grace in a Particular Face
The Spirit of God is everywhere, but we cannot find it everywhere; we can only find it here… and there… in a particular place, at a particular time. This Sunday, on All Saints’ Day, we’ll consider how the grace of God shines in the faces of God’s people.

During this Sunday’s All Saints’ Day Communion worship we remember by name those who have gone to be with our Lord since last All Saints’. You are invited to bring photos (5×7 or smaller) of loved ones you will be remembering on All Saints’ Day communion and place them on the “Dia de los Muertos” ofrenda (display) in the lobby.
This Sunday’s Communion on site will include individually wrapped pieces of bread, thanks to Linda Watson.

Sunday, October 24
  9:00 a.m. Contemporary Worship
10:45 a.m. Traditional Worship
This Sunday we honor those who have made worship possible during the pandemic, including our musicians, singers, pray-ers, ushers, decoraters, designers, and audio-visualizers. It’s been an amazing challenge and our church family has risen to the occasion with grace, skill, and commitment. This is our chance to express our gratitude. Come to the reception at 10:00 a.m.
Scripture  Matthew 5:1-9
Sermon  Blessed are the Peacemakers
Seventh in our fall sermon series on the Beatitudes, we look at what it means to be a peacemaker. Many of us know the Hebrew word for peace, “shalom,” which means not only absence of conflict, but the presence of safety, wholeness, justice, and all the material things that make for a good and healthy life. That might make peacemaking a broader undertaking than we had realized.

  9:00 a.m. Contemporary Worship
10:45 a.m. Traditional Worship
Scripture  Matthew 5:1-8
Sermon  Blessed are the Pure in Heart
The sixth in our fall sermon series on the Beatitudes, about the unexpected grace that arises in severe and challenging circumstances. What does it mean to be pure in heart? Is it about moral rectitude, or something more? What did Kierkegaard, the Danish Christian philosopher, mean when he said that “purity of heart is to will one thing”?
A worship bulletin will be emailed before the service.


Jubilee Sunday at CPC. We are a partner church with Jubilee USA, (www.jubileeusa.org) the non-partisan faith organization that works on debt, tax, trade and transparency policies that help end poverty.  Most recently Jubilee has worked on help for developing nations so they can concentrate their resources on those most at risk due to the pandemic. We’ll hear a Jubilee update from Vanessa Forsythe.

Sermon  Blessed are those who Hunger and Thirst for Righteousness
The fourth in our fall sermon series on the Beatitudes, about the unexpected grace that arises in severe and challenging circumstances.

10:45 a.m. Traditional Worship
Scripture  Matthew 5:1-5
Sermon  Blessed are the Meek
The third in our fall sermon series on the Beatitudes, about the unexpected grace that arises in severe and challenging circumstances. We equate meekness with weakness, but the word is often translated “gentle,” and sometimes “humble.” Still, this beatitude seems to be one of the less inviting ones. Yet Jesus includes his version of Psalm 37:11 in his guidelines for the upside-down kingdom of God. Why?

Scripture  Matthew 5:1-4

Sermon  Blessed are Those Who Mourn

The second in our fall sermon series on the Beatitudes, about the unexpected grace that arises in severe and challenging circumstances. The second beatitude doesn’t mean we should seek out grief because it’s a blessing; rather, it’s that when we grieve genuinely and deeply, we will eventually receive a comfort from beyond ourselves that frees us to live again without denying the gravity of our loss.

Farewell to the Ivanov Family
Scripture  Hebrews 13:1-2
Sermon  Entertaining Angels
While the phrase seems to reference how much fun the angels have at our expense, the actual origin is the kindness of Abraham and Sarah to three strangers who approached their desert camp (Genesis 18:1-15). The biblical command to welcome the stranger (also translated foreigner, alien, or sojourner, and the Hebrew word means any and all of them) can be found in many places; Exodus 23:9 is one that offers a rationale for doing so, should we need one. As we say goodbye to the Ivanov family this Sunday, we celebrate how quickly we have all moved from strangers to friends to family in Christ.

Celebrate with the Ivanov family as they prepare to move next week to their new home in Edina, Minnesota, where Aleksei has a full-time job waiting.

Scripture  James 1:17-27
Sermon  The Father of Lights in a World of Shadows  
These words from the beginning of the letter of James are appointed to be read this Sunday. Sometimes the words scheduled for a particular day seem mismatched for the moment, as on this occasion with all that is going on in the world. But very often, as one listens expectantly, a “word of truth” emerges. So is with these verses that range from “every perfect gift” that comes from the “Father of lights,” to the human capacity for both “wickedness and self-deception”—but also for a genuine faith that is a blessing to others.  
Presentation of Bibles during worship to several of our children.
A Word of Gratitude to the congregation for generous giving
