We’ll cover what Presbyterians believe and do, and an introduction to what goes on at CPC. A light breakfast will be served. RSVP helpful but not essential:  mailto:gregb@cpclacosta.org  If you’re interested in the class but can’t make June 23, send Greg an email.

Summer Sermon Series: Your Help Needed!
Your help needed for our Summer Sermon Series: Questions People Ask  Greg and Eileen are planning a sermon series that will address questions asked by the congregation – which means we need you to ask them! Please submit questions in writing, anonymously or otherwise, by email or offering basket. There will be one or two informal follow-up gatherings the week after each sermon in a local pub and/or coffee shop to further discuss the question.

We live in fearful times. This Sunday we take a journey through the scriptures and various responses to fear, from the twenty-third Psalm to Jeremiah (read chapter 32 for a preview), from the Christmas and Easter angels (what do they always say?) to the garden in John’s vision of the fulfillment of all things (Revelation 22).

Not sure 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.
