Step Up… to Commitment  We continue to follow Christ on “The Way” as we celebrate the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, just five days before the crucifixion. The philosopher Socrates once noted that the unexamined life is not worth living, but preacher William Sloane Coffin believed it was actually the uncommitted life that’s not worth living. What do you think?

Egg-venture: our annual gathering for Easter fun! Easter Egg hunts and games. Bring a picnic lunch and a dozen eggs for each child; it would be great for those without kids to bring a dozen eggs, too (plastic eggs filled with a treat). Details: Jill at

This Sunday and every second Sunday bring your non-perishable food items (or donation) for children of La Mirada Academy in San Marcos, a school with many low-income families. CPC sends a backpack of food home every weekend with 60 children – your support matters!

CPC joins Presbyterians everywhere to receive the One Great Hour of Sharing Offering this Sunday (and for the next three Sundays). The One Great Hour supports disaster victims, self-development projects, and hunger programs in the USA and around the world.

Holy Week at CPC
Palm/Passion Sunday, April 14, 9:00 & 10:45

To truly celebrate Easter, first come to the foot of the cross at any of our Holy Thursday or Good Friday services:
        Holy Thursday, April 18, 7:00 p.m.  On the night of the Last Supper, we break bread together and reflect on what it meant for Jesus to wash the feet of the disciples. Why were they — and we — so hesitant?

       Good Friday, April 19, noon and 7:00 p.m.  We gather on the day of the crucifixion for the office of Tenebrae (“the shadows”) as we hear once again the story of the suffering and death of our Savior in what many believe to be the most moving service of the year.

Easter Day, April 21, 6:30, 9:00 & 10:45   
Celebrate the resurrection of the Lord in our beautiful sanctuary with band, orchestra, praise team, choir, and your church family.
Bread Breakfast at 10:00 a.m.  All who wish are invited to bring a breakfast bread, muffin, doughnut, fruit or fruit salad, or breakfast treat to share between services.
