Blessing of the Backpacks

Last Sunday we filled over 100 backpacks for kids at La Mirada School in about twenty minutes! Thanks for all who donated, filled, organized and prayed for all the young people at La Mirada, all our own children heading back to school, and all God’s children. Coming on Sunday, September 15: a new hands-on project: packing food for the kids of La Mirada. Bless you all!

Baby Shower for the Ivanov family, 4 p.m. All are welcome! Aleksei and Marina Ivanov are expecting a boy and need everything! The Ivanovs are legal asylum seekers whom we are hosting at CPC while they await a decision. If you’d rather not shop for a gift, Target gift cards or cash donations to the asylum fund (made out to CPC) are welcome. If anyone has items they can donate or loan for baby use contact Karen McLachlan, who has a list of what’s already being provided mailto:krmclachlan@yahoo.com   RSVP your attendance at https://christ-pres.church/sign-up/

Scripture      Hebrews 11:1-3, 32 – 12:2

Sermon         What Makes Faith Real?

Last week we talked about faith as “the conviction of things not seen.” Faith is conviction in something – Someone – for whom there may not be enough evidence, at least not in a court of law, yet we trust is real. Where do you get that kind of conviction, anyway? No surprise, actually – it comes to us from stories. Stories we read, hear, see, and live.

Blessing of the Backpacks

Kids! This Sunday we bless our kids who are heading back to school.

            Bring your backpack to church, if you wish!

Mission! This Sunday at 10 a.m. we pack backpacks with school supplies

            for the kids of La Mirada School, who might not have them otherwise.

            Everyone of every age and stage can help! A fun, hands-on project!

Unsure of what to expect

We know attending a new church can sometimes be a little intimidating, so we've made a page that lays out what you can expect when you visit us for Sunday worship.
