On Saturday, January 13, the TPC Mountaineers will hike the Cold Springs Canyon Loop Trail in Caspers Wilderness Park. We will meet in the church parking lot at 8:00 a.m. to carpool. We should return to the church around 1:00 p.m. Details of the hike are available at the Fellowship Table in the patio. As with most trails, the ground will be uneven in places. Hikers should wear sturdy shoes, hats and sunscreen and bring water bottles and trail snacks. Hikers should also bring a lunch. We will plan to eat after the hike, before returning to the church. If you plan to join us, please sign up for the hike at the Fellowship Table in the patio after church so we know who to expect. We don’t want to leave anybody behind. Everyone is welcome! If you have questions about this hike, please contact Sue Currie or call the church office at (714)544-7070.
We invite you to watch a short video from a recent hike.
The following are pictures from a past TPC Mountaineers outing
to the Bear Canyon Trail in the Cleveland National Forest.

New Church Directories Available
A new revision to the TPC directory is now available. You can get a copy in the church office. If your address, telephone number, or e-mail address changes from those in the directory, please be sure to contact the church office by telephone at (714)544-7070 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can correct the information in the church database and ensure that the updated information is included in the next directory revision.
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 email@example.com. 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!
