Fellowship Committee Wants Your Help



The Fellowship Committee needs people who would be willing to be Worship Service Greeters and Cookie Bakers.  Also, if you have ideas for events that you would like to see happen here at TPC, drop by the Fellowship Table in the patio after the Sunday morning worship services to share your ideas, or you can email Barbara Murphy.




First Thursday Fellowship Opportunity



A special invitation is extended to those who are "older and wiser" among us to meet at noon on the first Thursday of each month in the Fellowship Hall for lunch and conversation.  Lunch will be provided by TPC. The cost is only $5 per person.


First Thursday will not meet in November due to a scheduling conflict.  The next meeting will be on Thursday, December 7.  Ashley Riopka, TPC's Director of Youth Ministries and a talented musician, will come to share a little about herself and then will lead the group in their favorite Christmas Carols.  Please call the church office at (714)544-7070 by Tuesday, December 5, to let us know that you will be coming.  If you need transportation, please let the church office know, and arrangements will be made so that you can attend.   We look forward to seeing you there!



Non-progressive Christmas Dinner

December 16 at 5:00 p.m. are the date and time to save.



Please join us for a Non-progressive Dinner which will have all the eating, fun, fellowship and carol singing of our traditional progressive dinners, but with less driving.  A delicious catered dinner will be served along with yummy desserts in the Fellowship Hall, which will be transformed into a Winter Wonderland!  Caroling and entertainment will be provided by the “Unplugged Holiday Carolers” from Orange County School of the Arts where our own Ryan Reithmeier is on the faculty.  All who attend will get to sing carols as well.  Sign-ups will begin on Sunday, November 5.  Look for the Table in the Patio!  Tickets are only $20 per person or $35 per couple.  If you need transportation, please let us know when you sign up.  You will not want to miss this TPC Holiday Event on December 16!

Directory Information Needed


We are preparing for an update to the TPC directory, and we want to be sure that we have the most current information for all members of the TPC family. If your address, telephone number, or e-mail address has changed in the past year, please contact the church office at (714)544-7070 or at to give us the correct information.  You can also come to the table in the church patio after the Sunday morning worship services and review the information that we currently have and provide us with any updates.  If you would like to have different telephone numbers and email addresses listed in the directory for each household member, please let the church office know.  We will try to accommodate such requests.


Electronic Communication


We are always trying to find new ways to communicate with all our TPC members.  In trying to be“green” and help our environment, we will be offering an alternate way of sending out the Parish Press. If we have your email address in our database, you will be invited to receive the Parish Press "on-line." If you have not received an e-mail from us, please contact the church office or send an e-mail to We would be happy to add you to our database so that you will be notified when the most current issue of the Parish Press is available. Of course, those without e-mail will continue to get the Parish Press the good old-fashioned way! And even those with e-mail can opt to continue receiving a paper mailing. All of this is to help us reduce the amount of paper in our lives!
