Sermon Questions People Ask: How do we trust God in the face of suffering?
When times are tough for ourselves or those we love, how can we continue to trust in a loving God? For some, God seems absent in the tough times, but for others, God seems most near. What makes the difference?
Sunday Adult Education: 10:10-10:45 am in the adult education room next to the sanctuary. Discussions track the fall sermon series “Questions People Ask.” Share your perspectives about the questions.
Pack Food for La Mirada School: all ages are invited to a new, fun hands-on mission project: packing food for kids at La Mirada School who don’t get much food on the weekend. We’ll pack 120 bags on Sunday September 29 at 10 a.m. Come to the old choir room next to the kitchen; it’s easy! Time expected: 25 minutes. We still need your non-perishable food donations! Pick up a list of what’s needed in the lobby.
Homeless Veterans Initiative: Bring your supplies for “move-in packs” for homeless vets receiving housing. Choose items to purchase from the lobby display, or donate funds (memo: Vets or online at our website/Give/Give Now). In two years CPC and four Presbyterian Churches in North County combined with Interfaith Community Services to house 122 veterans, 7 spouses, and 17 children! CPC alone has donated over $7000 and 60 “Make-It-A-Home” packs. Furniture in good condition is needed anytime; call Interfaith (760) 215-9637 to schedule home pickup.
Presbyterian Disaster Assistance will be on the ground in the Bahamas and other places devastated by Hurricane Dorian. Make your check out to CPC with the memo “Dorian,” or go online to our website, click “Give,” scroll down to “Give Now” and choose Mission: Hurricane Dorian.
