The Fifteenth Sunday of Ordinal Time

Hey Everyone!

I know this post is late coming, but it’s been a busy week that’s capping off with one of Lake City’s most jubilant festival. I’m writing this (and sending this) right before Shannon and I start our shift at the 2022 Uncorked–Lake City’s music and wine festival. No doubt it’s been a blessed summer in so many ways.

This Sunday, September 18th, we’ll explore one of the most confusing parables in all of the Gospels–Luke 16:1-13. If you’d like to read it and the other lectionary texts, you can find them at the bottom of the online Order of Worship bulletin.

Blessing of the Animals
Would you like your pet(s) blessed? Join us at St. James Episcopal Church (across the street) for a blessing of the animals at 11:30am. 

Games Up Here
We’re having “Games up here” on Monday, September 19th at the Presbyterian Annex at 7:00pm. 

Wednesday Bible Study
Join us this Wednesday afternoon, September 21st at 5:00pm at the Annex as we explore the challenging sermon Jesus offered on the mount–The Beatitudes.

Men’s Prayer Breakfast
Join the men of Lake City this Thursday, September 22nd at 7:00am for good food, prayer, and Bible study. 

This Friday and Saturday, September 23rd and 24th, CPC is hosting the autumn Presbytery meeting for the Presbytery of Western Colorado. As part of our hospitality, we’ll be offering a potluck breakfast at 8am on Saturday morning, and we need your help! Please consider contributing a breakfast casserole or dish of your choosing and joining us for breakfast. Moreover, everyone is also welcome to participate in the presbytery meeting which will start with worship at 9am in the sanctuary.

Cookie Drive
As we’re ending the summer, our fellowship cookie supply is finally in the danger zone. 😉 Please consider making some and dropping them off in sealable freezer bag(s) in Darley Hall. Please note if they are gluten-free. 

Prayer requests and prayer list
If you’d like to submit a prayer request to be included in the Sunday worship Prayers of the People or to be added to our weekly prayer list, please fill out a blue card BEFORE the service and give it to Jason. You can also submit your prayer request early via email: or text Nora at 719-220-0354.
