I give thanks for you whenever I think of you, and have not stopped praying for you.
That may seem like a strange sentence to begin with; however, that is part of the salutation Paul uses in his letter (epistle) to the church in Colossae. It is believed that the Apostle Paul wrote 13 letters to churches; four of those 13 epistles were written while Paul was on house arrest in Rome, one of which is the book of Colossians. Although Paul wrote his letters thousands of years ago, his words are just as pertinent today as they were when written.
On August 30th, I will begin a New Testament sermon series that will involve walking through the book of Colossians. Although Colossians is only four chapters long, there is much that we can learn from Paul’s words as a church and as individuals, and I am excited to see how the Holy Spirit speaks to us in our journey through this book.
I want to encourage you to take the time each week to read the scripture for the upcoming Sunday, and would love to hear any thoughts you may have regarding any passage.
We have started in-person meetings again at our pavilion. Just not sitting quite as close as pictured and with other safety precautions in place!
The Presbyterian Women's Group is meeting on Tuesday mornings at 10:00 am. Our men's group (Sonrisers) is meeting on Wednesdays at 8:00 am. Please contact the office for more information.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
To request prayer, a care visit, or inform us of a current or upcoming hospitalization, please use the confidential form and link below. An email will be sent to our pastor and committed pray-ers. You can always call the office at (928) 367-4923 to alert us about prayer needs or upcoming medical procedures as well.
In a time when we feel so separated, CPC is actually very Connected! We have made a great effort to stay connected with one another through calls, notes, emails and extra communication from the church office. But did you also know we have become more connected with our community as well? The contact with our community comes through interaction with the town website and the bi-weekly updates provided by town manager, Tony Alba. (You can sign-up to receive these updates by going to the Pinetop-Lakeside website.)
In a recent edition of the town update, Mayor Irwin included a poem written by one of our neighbors, Leslie Dwight. It reflects upon our unusual experiences so far in the year 2020. I secured permission to share this poem with you as a ‘thought/reflection piece’; I hope you find it a source of encouragement...
What if 2020 isn't canceled?
What if 2020 is the year we've been waiting for? A year so uncomfortable, so painful, so scary, so raw -- that it finally forces us to grow. A year that screams so loud, finally awakening us from our ignorant slumber. A year we finally accept that need for change. Declare change. Work for change. Become the change. A year we finally band together, instead of pushing each other further apart.
2020 isn't canceled, but rather the most important year of them all.

In our love for Christ we are called to be connected and looking for the movement of God’s Spirit in the world. Could this year be a year of God shaking us up in order to move us forward as a country and as a church? Thanks for the thoughts, Leslie.
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)

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.

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.

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.
