This Sunday at CPC, October 3, 2021

Sunday, October 3: World Communion
  9:00 a.m. Contemporary Worship
10:45 a.m. Traditional Worship
Scripture  Matthew 5:1-6
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. Why would those with an unquenched longing for what is right and good find themselves blessed? We ask this question on a day when we remember—and celebrate—our place what the old hymn called “my Father’s world.”
World Communion Sunday when we join people of faith from around the planet to share the bread of life. Those worshiping at home should prepare their own bread and wine/juice/water.
A worship bulletin will be emailed before the service.
