Happy New Year from CPC
We will be beginning a Sermon Series on the book of Habakkuk. January 10th I will give background information and an overview on the book, before looking at 1:1-11. As I have read and studied Habakkuk for this sermon series, I find that it is a very pertinent book for us today as we live in a world of a pandemic and other issues. If you have ever asked God "why" or if you have ever wondered if God is listening, this series is for you.
---- Peace, Diane

Greetings on behalf of Session and myself:
Session held an emergency meeting this evening to discuss concerns regarding the recent spike in COVID cases, as well as two persons who are a vital part of the congregation contracting the Virus. After discussion, thought and prayer, Session made the decision that the health of each person in our congregation is of the utmost concern. Therefore, beginning December 6th, we will not be holding in person worship services, nor will we allow in-person meetings within the building, for at least the next 30 days. It is our prayer that a vaccine will soon be available and COVID will be eradicated so we can once again worship in our building together soon.
However, until we can meet in person, we have a great alternative where we can all worship together online. It is a site called Online Church. This site provides us an opportunity to gather virtually and watch our worship service together, as well as having the ability to communicate with each other via chat.
To watch the services on Sunday mornings, simply click this link https://cpcpinetop.online.church . The first time you click on the link, you will be asked to create a sign in; the sign in will include the name you wish to be displayed and your email address. After entering that information, you will be taken directly into the worship service site. If you have any difficulty with this process, please do not hesitate to call me (805-402-3954) so I can walk you through the process.
When you enter the site, you will see that in addition to being able to chat, you will also be able to access a copy of the bulletin. There is also bible tab so that you can read along with the Scripture reading, and links to our Facebook and Website. Also, during the Offertory, there will be a donate button if you wish to submit your offering via the internet at that time. If you do not wish to give online, you can mail your check, or take it to the church and drop it into the mailbox.
Each Sunday you can sign into the service at 9:00 a.m. for a half hour of “visiting” with each other via chat if you wish. The actual service will begin at 9:30. You will also be able to stay in the service for a half-hour after worship to chat with each other if you wish.
I believe that using this platform for worship will help us to have fellowship even if we are not able to meet together in person. If you are unable to join us on Sunday mornings, you will still be able to access the service on our Facebook page or on our Website.
Again, Session made the decision to go to online services only because we want to take every step we can to protect you. I look forward to the day when we can all gather together for worship, singing out loud and giving each other hugs. What a wonderful day that will be!! And, I can state with confidence that day will come.
As always, you can contact myself (805-402-3954, Pastor.email@example.com) or any Session member with any comments, questions or concerns.
With knowledge that God is in control,

Children and youth play a significant role in every aspect of life at CPC. From ushering and other responsibilities in our worship services, to helping out with missions, buildings and grounds, and fellowship opportunities such as Souper Bowl Sunday, Fat Tuesday Pancake Dinner and the summer Church BBQ. We offer Sunday School on the 2nd Sunday of every month. The other Sundays, kids participate in the worship service.
We are very committed to Montlure Presbyterian Camp. Along with sending 6 kids to camp last year, CPC serves as the mail drop for campers, provides housing and support to staff before camp starts, our members volunteer during camp, and we raise much needed funds for rebuilding the Greer site after the Wallow fire. Last year, the kids and their families participated in a spaghetti dinner fundraiser to help raise the money needed to send everyone to camp without much expense to the families.

We are still wanting to work on getting our MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) program off the ground. This is a program where Moms can bring their preschoolers to church on a weekday morning to be cared for by someone trusted and capable while they discuss "Mom Things", and parenting in general, along with some basic Bible Study and mentoring from those of us who "have been there", or at least care about what they are going through. Contact Debbie (719-351-4264) or Laurie (928-521-7630)
