Permission Slips/Summer Packet

Students, family and friends: If you plan to participate in any of the exciting summer events this year, make sure your permission slips are turned in to Ashley ASAP!  If you need a copy of the summer packet for yourself or a friend, see Ashley after the Sunday morning worship services or go to and download the forms from the youth page.


The OCTO Project

On Youth Sunday, the youth introduced a project they are working on: making crocheted octopi for preemie babies at CHOC.  If you would like to join us, Ashley will be hosting a tutorial on Sunday, June 25, after the worship service, in the Fireside Lounge.  Feel free to bring your own 100% cotton yarn and a 3.5mm hook.  If you donít have those things, there will be supplies available.


Camp Pondo!

We are headed to Camp Pondo from June 26 Ė June 30!  We are so excited to head to camp for our fifth year in a row with our middle schoolers.  Please keep us in your prayers as we head up to the mountain for fun, fellowship, and learning.  UPDATE: There are still spaces for middle school students.  See Ashley after the Sunday morning worship services for more information!  





Congratulations to our graduates from your TPC family.

Itís time for summer splash to begin.  Beginning Wednesday, June 21, and continuing every week through August 16 (except June 28 and August 2), we will meet at the homes of church members and at the beach to fellowship and learn more about God together in a fun environment.  If you or your student has never been before, a typical Summer Splash will go like this: arrive at the location at 6:00 p.m. and jump directly into the pool.  Sometime later we will take a break for dinner and a brief Bible study.  After that, the kids will usually jump back into the pool until the 9:00 p.m. pick-up time.  There will not be a Summer Splash on Wednesday, June 28, since some of our youth will be at Ponderosa Pines Christian Camp.  Our next Summer Splash on July 5 will be at the home of the Webbs.  Please see Ashley Riopka after the worship services or contact her by telephone at (714)544-7070 for more information.

Thank you to all who participated in this yearís Souper Bowl of Caring.  Though the congregation overwhelmingly donated in favor of the Atlanta Falcons, they were not able to hold their lead in the game.  The real winners, though, are our neighbors who will directly benefit from your generosity, so THANK YOU, and remember that together we can tackle hunger in our own community!


The recipients of the food and cash collection were Family Promise, Families Forward and the Santa Ana First Presbyterian Church.  They received 300 cans and $150!
