This Sunday at CPC, August 8, 2021

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.

We all have to grow up, but every so often Jesus reminds us that there’s something about childhood not to be lost. But if we’ve lost it, there’s always the opportunity to grow down…

This Sunday is Sundae Sunday, our annual celebration of the children of Vacation Bible eXperience and their families! Please stay for ice cream sundaes after both services on the patio, provided by masked and gloved servers.
