Sermon:    A Healthy Body Image

Most of us are familiar with the image of God’s people as “the body of Christ” – and it may even seem ho-hum. But there’s a lot more meaning, energy – and life! – in the image than we may expect. It’s actually one of the more profound metaphors every conceived – but maybe it’s even more than that.

My One Word: You’re invited to choose one word to be your spiritual focus for 2019. As an alternative to a new year’s resolution, pick one word (or phrase) to receive your attention: write it on a card in your desk, put it on a post-it note on the mirror, use it as a screen saver – there are countless ways to remember to consider something new. Among the many choices people have made in the past are: compassion, forgive, steady, look, and grace. Eileen’s word is community. Greg will reveal his word for 2019 on January 27. Email your word to mailto:amyk@cpclacosta.org or write it anonymously on a slip of paper in the lobby so we can see what other folks are thinking about.

Contribution Statements for 2018 will be emailed by January 31, 2019.

Good news: Our long-awaited kitchen renovation begins on Monday, January 14, when a dumpster arrives in the parking lot. The process should take six weeks. Thank you for your generous and faithful giving to Forward in Faith, which makes this possible!

Positive Discipline in the Christian Home is a multi-session approach for parents led by Sue Liesegang, who has taught a version of this class in the public schools with great results. Parents of all age kids are invited to a “sample session” this Sunday, 10:00 – 10:20 in the youth room. No obligation, come check it out!

Christmas mission giving at CPC was amazing!

Christmas gifts for six families at La Mirada Academy.

Car loads of diapers, paper products, socks, and other supplies of legal asylum seekers in San Diego who have nothing

A generous $1900 to help our sister city in Tijuana provide services to migrants awaiting asylum hearings

A Christmas Joy Offering of $1200: $900 for retired missionaries/pastors in need and Presbyterian racial/ethnic schools, and $300 for CPC mission scholarships

A record $10,000 for the Alternative Christmas Market! These funds are divided among eleven local and international service and mission organizations, from Community Resource Center (Encinitas) to Presbyterian Urban Ministries (San Diego) to Heifer International.

Thank you for such wonderfully open hearts!

This Sunday and every second Sunday bring your non-perishable food items (or donation) for children of La Mirada Academy (formerly Alvin Dunn School) in San Marcos, a school with many low-income families. CPC sends a backpack of food home every weekend with 90 children – your support matters! 4; \lsdpr

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.
