World Communion Sunday We welcome our children to the Lord’s Table. Breads from around the world remind us that we share this feast with people of faith of every language, in every place, on every continent.
Scripture Colossians 1:15-20
Sermon Questions People Ask: Are we to seek God’s universal truth, or just our own version?
In what is often called a “post-modern” world, is there such a thing as “universal truth?” We of the Christian faith look to an eastern Mediterranean peasant as our leader, not to mention our Savior. How can a faith that arose in such a specific, particular location following a specific, particular person possibly reveal a truth that is for everyone?
Sunday Adult Education: 10:10-10:45 am in the adult education room. Discussions track the fall sermon series “Questions People Ask.”
The Peacemaking Offering will be shared between Presbyterian efforts in the US and around the world and the efforts against human trafficking of San Diego Youth Services, providing help and healing for at-risk youth and survivors up to age 24. Services include a drop-in center, mental health clinic, and the county’s only overnight emergency shelter for minors as well as transitional housing. Use the peacemaking envelope or give online (CPC website: “Give,” scroll to “Give Now”).
Care Packages for College Students are sent by our Deacons every fall so they know their church family cares for them.
