Angel Tree: Thank your gifts for needy families at La Mirada School this Sunday, December 16. You may wrap them (or place them in a gift bag) but please attach the “angel” with the child’s name!

Please remember the church in your year-end giving. Among the many worthy causes at Christmastime is CPC, the place for grace that we call home. As you know, we’ve stretched our budget this year, so your over and above year end gift is especially important in 2018! To be included in the 2018 tax year, gifts must be received in the church office by noon on December 31, or postmarked no later than December 31. Thank you! 86d6c322e5
