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.
As July begins, and the smell of monsoon moisture begins to fill the air, we continue on our path towards searching for a new installed pastor. This month we will complete our mission study (CHAT). There are many opportunities for ministry in the works. An upcoming trip to Israel, a new Bible Study starting and many more. If you have any questions about these items, please be sure to ask me and if I don’t know the answer, we will find out together!
So let me share with you our upcoming worship schedule.
- July 7th we will celebrate communion at both services. We will be celebrating and remembering Independence Day and the sermon is entitled “A Soldier’s Story”. It is based on II Kings 5:1-27.
- July 14th we continue our look at the life and ministry of Elisha. Our text will be II Kings 4:1-7 and the sermon is “Famine and Abundance”.
- July 21st we will consider II Kings 4:1-7 and Elisha’s resurrection of a young boy. The title of the sermon will be “Raised From the Dead”.
- July 28th is still in the works, so I can’t give you the details as yet. But we will worship together and we will have a sermon!!
I hope all this information isn’t overwhelming, rather that it gives you an idea of God’s activity in our midst. We are blessed with an abundance of energy and vision at CPC. May all we do, be to God’s glory!
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 18. 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.
