You Are Important to Us
We believe that every person with whom we come in contact is someone Jesus wants us to meet and get to know. That’s why we are interested in getting to know you better. Your combination of gifts, experiences, humor and passions will make us a better church so, we want you to become a part of us!
How You Are Important to Jesus
The most valuable thing for any person to realize is that he or she is of indescribable value to Jesus. There has never been anyone just like you, nor will there ever be! And Jesus has come that you might find out just how good life can be for you and those around you. We believe that Jesus alone can give us the opportunity to live a fulfilling life now and an eternal one after we have died. The relationship Jesus wants to have with you is one that makes all of the difference in the world – it’s a matter of life and death. And he wants you to choose life by choosing him.
How to Become a Follower of Jesus
Becoming a follower of Jesus begins with a few simple steps, but you must be willing to take these steps seriously and honestly:
You have to admit that you cannot live a perfect life, which is what God expects us to do. This means that you must recognize that you need someone who has lived a perfect life (that’s Jesus) to rescue you.
You have to turn away from living your own way and choose to live Jesus’ way. This means that you must forget the way you now live and focus on living the way Jesus wants you to live.
You have to face up to Jesus and tell him that he is going to be in charge of your life from now on. This means that he becomes both your Savior (rescurer) and Lord (master).
You must do all of this by simply trusting that he is listening to you and will keep his promise that he will enter into your life and assure you that he is with you forever.
Tell someone who already knows Jesus that you have made this decision, had this conversation with Jesus, and want to to get started on the journey. That could be a Christian friend you might know, a neighbor that has told you about Jesus, or someone here at CPC. You can tell Pastor Steve.
Congratulations on making the best decision of your life! Now join us on our journey!
Joint Effort Leisure Ministry
The JELM is a non-profit activity program and a ministry of the Community Presbyterian Church. We use the buildings called the JELM Center and the Pollock Center. These are located off of Alister Street with entrances facing the Jerry MacDonald Field. It is a program offered for residents of Port Aransas and our winter guests. A limited amount of activities are offered in October and November and in December, more and more activities are added to our program. January and February have the most programs scheduled and the activities ebb in the month of March. A full calendar of events is available in the JELM Center every month, as well as now online here. The JELM Center is open Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. JELM is run by volunteers: both the instructors and the office personnel are volunteers. Coffee and cookies are offered at our JELM Center and office. We are funded by your generous donations. Most of our classes are free, but some do require pre-registration and materials fees. We ask for free will donations for the use of our buildings.
All participants are asked to register with the JELM program for a fee of $10 per person or $20 a couple per season. The JELM is always looking for new ideas for classes. If you have a special talent, or would like to volunteer to teach a class at the JELM, please contact Pat Reilly between 9am and 3pm, Monday through Friday by phone, or by email.
We offer a schedule of events and a calendar every month from November through March.
