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!
