Join us for Worship on Sunday at 10:30 am
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.
A Year in Review
The New Year is behind us, the Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) is continuing their work, the Israel trip is completed and we are soon to be in the Lenten season of the church year! During January and February, we have been considering the early life of Jesus and the beginning of His public ministry. Lent will draw us to the Beatitudes of Jesus as part of His sermon on the mount given overlooking the Sea of Galilee.
Lent is usually associated with ‘giving up something’ as a form of penance or sacrifice to remind us of Christ’s sacrifice for us. However, as a kid, I don’t think giving up brusell sprouts did much for my spiritual development! Traditionally, Lent is a time of self-examination and noticing where our spiritual lives need more development. Along these lines, this morning at Sonraisers we discussed the need for (and lack of) silence in our lives. We realized there are very few places in this world where we don’t hear the sound of some man-made device. We fill our days with radios and televisions and other distractions so we don’t have to experience silence. Thus some folks try to avoid silence while others who are alone, experience too much silence. It is a strange dilemma we face. Not enough silence and we can’t examine our lives and face up to our short-comings, too much silence and we face the possibility of loneliness.
I would encourage you to allow enough silence to discern God’s quiet voice, but not forget those who may be overwhelmed by the silence. Certainly this is a balancing act for life, but a necessary one to explore during the upcoming Lenten time.
May God’s Spirit touch your life during this season of preparation and ‘inward looking’.
Grace and Peace, Bob

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

Communion is shared the 1st Sunday
of each month.
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.
