Zoom Sunday School for Children

Children of all ages are welcome to join us on Sunday mornings from 9:45 to 10:15 a.m. on Zoom for Bible stories, music, conversation, and visits with our crazy friend Sid. Zoom Sunday school is led by Eva Stimson, Jerry Van Marter, and Bev Machin. Please contact one of them if you are interested in joining the leadership team. Contact Jerry Van Marter to get on the list to receive weekly Zoom invitations and curriculum materials. The class will take a summer break after Pentecost. May 28, 2023 will be the last meeting until fall.

A Message from the Pastor

Dear Beloved of God,

This coming Sunday, I will preach on 1 Peter, particularly the passage that reads, “Sanctify the Messiah as Lord in your hearts, and always be ready to reply to anyone who asks you to explain the hope in you.” I wonder what is the “hope in you” for CHPC? 

As the Session prepares to seek new leadership, they must have a vision for the direction the congregation is going so they can offer a clear and true representation to pastoral candidates. They need to hear from you.

Imagine meeting someone in the Crescent Hill community who asks you about your church. Not the church of yesterday but the present and future church. In a few sentences, what would you tell them about CHPC? What is the basis of your hope for the church’s future? 

Now share your thoughts with me and the Session. Send me your answers, and I will share them with the Session. Just click here to go directly to my email address. 

As always, I encourage you to keep your Session and staff in prayer as we discern the next steps in transitioning to your next pastor. 





CHPC’s Presbyterian Women’s Circle is collecting items that will go into hygiene kits for Presbyterian Disaster Assistance. We invite others in the congregation to join us in this collection. Items requested include:     

  • toothbrushes individually wrapped
  • unscented, wrapped bar soap
  • 1-inch-wide Band-Aids
  • wide-toothed combs (no picks)
  • washcloths   
  • hand towels 
  • Zip-Lock one-gallon bags
  • Monetary donations are also accepted.

Do not substitute or add any items. This request is for new items, rather than used. Presbyterian Disaster Assistance is specific in its request.

Please leave your donations in the Gathering Room, off the Narthex, no later than Sunday, May 14. Presbyterian Women will deliver them to Beulah PC where the hygiene kits will be assembled. If you have any questions, contact Diana Stephen, dasky@bellsouth.net
