Sunday, November 7: All Saints’ Communion
  9:00 a.m. Contemporary Worship
10:45 a.m. Traditional Worship
Scripture  2 Timothy 1:3-7
Sermon    A Universal Grace in a Particular Face
The Spirit of God is everywhere, but we cannot find it everywhere; we can only find it here… and there… in a particular place, at a particular time. This Sunday, on All Saints’ Day, we’ll consider how the grace of God shines in the faces of God’s people.

During this Sunday’s All Saints’ Day Communion worship we remember by name those who have gone to be with our Lord since last All Saints’. You are invited to bring photos (5×7 or smaller) of loved ones you will be remembering on All Saints’ Day communion and place them on the “Dia de los Muertos” ofrenda (display) in the lobby.
This Sunday’s Communion on site will include individually wrapped pieces of bread, thanks to Linda Watson.

This Sunday at CPC, October 24, 2021

Sunday, October 24
  9:00 a.m. Contemporary Worship
10:45 a.m. Traditional Worship
This Sunday we honor those who have made worship possible during the pandemic, including our musicians, singers, pray-ers, ushers, decoraters, designers, and audio-visualizers. It’s been an amazing challenge and our church family has risen to the occasion with grace, skill, and commitment. This is our chance to express our gratitude. Come to the reception at 10:00 a.m.
Scripture  Matthew 5:1-9
Sermon  Blessed are the Peacemakers
Seventh in our fall sermon series on the Beatitudes, we look at what it means to be a peacemaker. Many of us know the Hebrew word for peace, “shalom,” which means not only absence of conflict, but the presence of safety, wholeness, justice, and all the material things that make for a good and healthy life. That might make peacemaking a broader undertaking than we had realized.

To worship online live every Sunday at 9:00 and 10:45 or recorded: go to www.Christ-Pres.Church and click Watch Worship, then click the service you would like to attend.
