We are a family rooted in Christ, called to glorify and enjoy God through worship, discipleship, compassion, and service to one another and to our community.
We strive to be a safe place, a sanctuary where people are accepted, included, and cared for as they are. We have been called to be agents of God’s transforming power, aligning ourselves with the Holy Spirit as we pray, worship, learn, gather for fellowship and serve together.
Please join the Presbyterian Women and White Mountain United Methodist Church for their annual fundraising sale featuring handmade crafts, home made casseroles and delicious baked goods. This sale will benefit local charities including White Mountain Nature Center, Love Kitchen, Hope House, Camp Tatiyee, Save Our Park and more.
It is hard to believe how quickly the summer is moving along. Memorial Day seems like just a few days ago and already it is the beginning of August! I know for our teachers, administrators and students the summer has just flown by. Please remember to pray for our students and all who support them as they head back to classes.
Certainly we are involved in many different ministries in the White Mountains, but I would remind you that our main focus as a congregation is worship. From our worship flows our desire to be involved ministering in our communities. However, sometimes we attend worship and don’t really reflect upon what we are doing during our services on Sunday mornings. So let’s take time during August to remember why we do what we do in worship. The sermons during the month will focus us upon the elements of our worship. They are listed below:
- August 4: “The Gathering” ~ Psalm 100
- August 11: “The Hearing” ~ Matthew 11:1-15
- August 18: “The Responding” ~ James 1:22-25
- August 25: “The Sacraments” ~ Matthew 28:19-20 & Matthew 26:26-30
May the rest of your summer be refreshing as you enjoy God’s creation around us!
Grace and Peace, Bob
Thanks so much to the congregation for your generous support of the summer camp fund-raisers. We raised enough money to pay for all of our young people attend camp this summer (less the registration paid by the families). At this time we have 8 folks going to camp and we are also sending 2 counselors. One more item about camp – we will be praying during worship for our campers the Sunday that their camp starts, however, please remember to continue in prayer for them while they are at camp! May God use this opportunity to strengthen their faith.
Here are the dates the handbells will be playing during the summer: July 21 and August 25. The plan is to not ask if you want to be in the ‘Handbell Choir’ and commit to a weekly practice all summer. Rather, you can sign-up to play on whatever Sunday (from the above list) that fits your schedule (or all the Sundays if they work for you!). Of course with the sign-up to play comes the commitment to practice a couple of times as a group before we play in worship. But the idea is you are only committing to one Sunday at a time – not the whole summer. A sign-up sheet will be available in the Fellowship Hall. Remember, “If you can count to four, you can play handbells!”

Welcome to the Community Presbyterian Church of Pinetop. I am very glad you took the time to find our website. Currently I am serving as the Interim Pastor while the congregation engages in a search process to secure a new Installed Pastor. As you view our website and learn more about our ministry, I hope the fact that we are in a transition time doesn't cause you to stay away. As interim, I am very impressed with the vitality of this congregation and know you will receive a warm welcome. Please do not hesitate to call me if you have any questions or would like to stop by for some coffee and conversation! God's blessings upon you, Bob
“Sonrisers” is a men’s group that studies Christian books and includes a time of fellowship. It meets every Wednesday at 8:00 am. It gives men a special time to be together.
Presbyterian Women's Group meets from May through September each year on Tuesday mornings in the church fellowship hall from 10-11:30 am. We dedicate some of the meeting times to a Bible Study, to crafting, and the second Tuesday of each month we have our business meeting followed by a potluck. We have three fund raisers each summer which allow us to raise funds for a number of missions that we support, most of which are here in the White Mountains. We are a group of ladies who are dedicated to caring for others and offer support for one another. We also have a "PW and Friends' Day Out" on the fourth Thursday of the month, where we visit interesting historical museums or such. We would love and encourage anyone to join us during those summer months. For more information contact Georgia Merrick, PW Moderator at (928) 358-1020.
