Updated Worship Plans

In keeping with the latest guidelines from the San Diego County Health Department, worshipers seated in the sanctuary and lobby will need to wear masks as part of the effort to limit the spread of the delta virus variant. Outdoor worshipers who have been vaccinated may remove their masks if they choose. The CDC and County have recommended that all people, vaccinated or not, wear masks in indoor public spaces such as churches. Our "return to worship team" understands that opinions vary on the use of masks while indoors, and we appreciate your understanding as we navigate these uncertain times with concern for all.

Sermon  Bearing With One Another

In a time of a fractured society and a stubborn virus, not to mention the usual challenges of life, it can be difficult to love one another. Apparently this isn’t a new experience, as the letter to the Ephesians makes clear. But that’s the job description of a friend and follower of Christ…

HANDS OF PEACE SUNDAY, JULY 25

Scripture  Exodus 2:1-10

Sermon    The Power of the Personal

The often overlooked story of Pharoah’s daughter finding the baby Moses floating in the Nile River, is not to be missed for its insight—and even more for its courage.

Hands of Peace Sunday is an annual tradition at CPC when we welcome Israeli, Palestinian, and American youth who take part in an intense three-week program of dialogue, learning, and fellowship as a way of planting seeds for a future peace in Israel/Palestine. Founded after September 11, 2001 by mothers of the three faiths, over 700 young adults have been through the HOP in San Diego and Chicago. This summer and last, the in-person program was suspended due to COVID, but this year an online “Summer Program Launchpad” is preparing next year’s participants for the program. CPC has supported HOP for eight years with mission gifts, homestays, board members Kathy Reese and Glen and Rocio Middleton, and by hosting youth on a summer Sunday, to resume in 2022! 

Sister Faiths Reunion at CPC, 5:00 — 6:30 p.m. For the first time since January 2020 we will gather in person with our Jewish and Muslim friends outdoors for an ice cream food truck (for purchase), cold beverages, lawn games, and conversation. Please don’t bring snacks to share after all; we’ll have a few provided as well, and we’ll follow our worship protocol regarding masks. 

Coffee Hour between services—stay late or come early! Coffee, tea, hot chocolate will be served by amateur baristas (no tips!). And yes, donut holes on communion Sundays!

COME AND WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY, TRINITY SUNDAY
Choose where you would like to worship this Sunday and after:
    Indoors in the sanctuary and lobby, with all the sliding glass doors open!
       Please sign-up so we can make plans. Click Sign Up at www.Christ-Pres.Church
       In keeping with county guidance, please wear a mask (there may be children or
           folks at risk present). Sing softly, not like you do in the shower!
    Outdoors on the patio and lawn, with pop-up tents provided for the sun or rain!
      Per the county, masks need not be worn by the vaccinated, though lately many   
        choose to mask up anyway. Wear a mask to sing at whatever volume you like!
    Online at www.Christ-Pres.Church (click “Watch Worship”), live or recorded.
We have upgraded our technology to make the sound and video even better. 
The “vibe” may be a little different as worship leaders make eye contact with  
people in the room as well as the camera. Sing loud at home for your neighbors!
 
9:00 a.m.  Contemporary Worship
10:45 a.m. Traditional Worship
 
Trinity Sunday comes right after Pentecost, with its attempt to image the God “whose ways are higher than our ways, whose thoughts are higher than our thoughts” (Isaiah 55:9). “God in three Persons, blessed Trinity” is an imperfect description (every image is); however, there is deep truth to be found for those willing to look for it.
 
A Memorial Day Observance will conclude both worship services this Sunday.
 
Scripture  Genesis 1:1-2, John 1:1-5
Sermon   The One, the Word, and the Wind
How do we describe the indescribable God? How do we put into words what is beyond words? The One, the Word, the Wind, the Trinity are all among the ways people of faith have tried to make the idea of God come alive. Might there be life in those images for us, too?
A worship bulletin will be emailed before the service.

Online coffee hour on Zoom 10:00 – 10:30 a.m. See This Week for Zoom log in information.
