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.
There are three ‘Good News’ Items to share with you this month! They are the Presbyterian Women’s mission sale, information about the Montlure property and our upcoming congregational meeting.
First the work of the Presbyterian Women. As you know, the PW group has worked all summer to prepare for their craft and bake sale the weekend of August 24/25. You can gain more information about this event and the mission projects they supported in the article elsewhere in this newsletter. But I want to offer up a big ‘Thank You’ from the congregation for their diligent work (no doubt there was fun involved as well!). This summer long mission endeavor included many women who were willing to give of their time and efforts to make this year’s sale such a great success. Thank you ladies for your faithfulness ~ this is ‘good news’!
Second, the presbyteries of Arizona have received verbal permission from the National Forest Service to re-occupy the Montlure Camp site in Greer! (I say ‘verbal’ permission as they are waiting for an official ‘written’ document which is in process.) It is questionable if the camp will be ready for use the summer of 2020, but you never know. The presbyteries are putting together a plan for renovation of the property so there will be many more details to come. However, this long-awaited announcement is truly - ‘good news’!
Third, we have received permission from the Committee on Ministry of Grand Canyon Presbytery to move ahead to the next step in our new pastor search. That step is to elect a Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC). Sooooo, we need a congregational meeting to elect this search committee. The congregational meeting will be held immediately following worship on Sunday, September 15th. This is a major step forward in our search process ~ and is truly ‘good news’!
We are experiencing God’s grace in many different ways. Again thanks to all the folks who are/were working on these projects. Let’s rejoice in all this ‘good news’.
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.

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.
