Welcome to Community Presbyterian Church

Join Us For Worship on Sundays at 10:30 am

Mission Statement

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.  

Vision Statement

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 Us On February 3rd

Souper Bowl of Caring Sunday

We will be collecting cans of soup on February 3rd and donating them to The Love Kitchen. You can bring your donation of soup (or a financial donation) to church on Sunday or to the office during the week. Our goal is 300 cans of soup!  Don't forget to wear your favorite team jersey on the 3rd. 

Souper Bowl of Caring is youth across the nation working to fight hunger and poverty in their own communities around the time of the Super Bowl football game. 

In the weeks leading up to or on Super Bowl Sunday, young people take up a collection (many use a soup pot), asking for one dollar or one item of food for people in need. They give 100% of their donation directly to the local hunger-relief charity of their choice. 

More than $100 million has been collected since the movement began in 1990! Help us grow this movement and tackle hunger in America!

The Love Kitchen

The Love Kitchen provides a hot and nutritious meal for anyone who walks through their door from 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday. They proudly serve the White Mountain communities of both Navajo and Apache counties. 

Another heartbeat of their mission is distributing food boxes weekly as food is available.  Distribution is on Wednesday's from 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.  This service is provided with assistance from partner agencies like United Food Bank and Feeding America, and those in our community who hold food drives.

Compassionate Expressions - A New Ministry Hosted By Our Deacons

Each Sunday, congregants will find a special table in Fellowship Hall (look for the balloons) where you will find note cards provided by our Deacons. The purpose is to send words of compassion and encouragement to our members and friends whose personal concerns have been raised during our Sunday morning worship service or through the prayer chain.  The Deacons will even put a stamp on the envelop and mail the note for you!  Check it out, and THANK YOU DEACONS for creating new opportunities to stay in touch with our church family.

From the Heart

Bear Tree Mission


We have the most generous and loving congregation any church could ask

for. I hope all of you were able to see the fabulous gift bags that were donated to

Child Protective Services of the White Mountains. These gift bags will be

distributed to forty-seven foster children the second week of December.


Our wish for you is to have a very blessed Christmas filled with love, good

health and happiness.

In God's Love and Ours,

About Us

Meet Our Interim Pastor


The Reverend Bob Leivers (he prefers 'Bob') joins us as interim pastor on February 1, 2019. Bob is a member of Pueblo Presbytery in Colorado where he has served as a pastor for 38 years. For 20 years he was the pastor of Faith Presbyterian Church, Colorado Springs while also serving as reserve chaplain in the U.S. Air Force. Following the events of 9/11, Bob was called to Active Duty for 12 years and retired as the reservist to the Command Chaplain of U.S. Space Command. He then served as President/CEO of a Denver based non-profit followed by an interim pastor position at Gateway Presbyterian Church in Colorado Springs.

Bob and Debbie have been married for 45 years and live in Manitou Springs, Colorado. They have two children: Becky and her husband (Shawn) live with their two children (Ben & Hannah) in Peoria, AZ; while their son Carl and his wife (Jessica) live in Decatur, GA with their children Maggie and Calley. 

Sharing God's Love



“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.
