Dear Friends,

It’s Rachel Hanson here filling in for Pastor John, as he and Pastor Ann continue to enjoy their sabbatical and time of resting and refreshing. Last week, I enjoyed some time away with my family when we traveled for a sports tournament to Northern California. It was an incredible time of relaxation and we came back refueled and energized for the weeks ahead.  Rest is a part of God’s intentionally designed rhythm for us, and it’s a must for us to be able to show up everyday as the best version of ourselves. As we wind down the summer and look ahead to the hustle and bustle of back to school, let’s forget to rest, spend time focusing on relationships that are life giving, and enjoy peaceful moments with the Lord!  And don’t forget to join us this weekend when guest speaker Benny Yu joins us all the way from Mexico city!


Now, here are a couple of exciting things coming up that I want to share with you:


1. Join us for Part 7 of LEGENDS with Benny Yu this weekend!

This weekend, we continue with our series on LEGENDS! Pastor Benny will take us on the journey of Queen Esther and remind us that we have been called for such a time as this! 

I hope to see you there. You can join us in-person or online at 9 am, 11 am, or 5 pm! 


2. Join us as we serve our Temecula Valley community.

We’re partnering with The Dream Center of Lake Elsinore to donate 500 pairs of shoes to local children in need! You can have a lasting impact on kids in Temecula Valley. Here is how to help:

1. You can drop off a new pair of shoes at Centerpoint Church.

2. You can give – we’ll buy and distribute the shoes.

3. You can volunteer to serve at the Back to School Bash event on August 6th.

Thanks for partnering with us to make a lasting impact on our community! 



We are all about connecting and enjoying the summer here at CP. We have summer nights planned for all ages! Check out our upcoming summer events for this week below:


  • TONIGHTJuly 21st – MOVIE NIGHT from 6–8 pm 


  • Next Tuesday, July 20th – EPIC ROLLERRINK  (Tuesday Only)


  • This Sunday after the 5 pm service (July 24th) – S’MORES + SCORES


4. Women! Don’t miss out on a fun summer Book Club, beginning August 4th!

The Bible is filled with inspiring stories of unlikely candidates God chose to change eternity. This bestselling compilation in one volume contains five novellas about such people―women in the family tree of Jesus Christ. Lineage of Grace by Francine Rivers explores the mistakes, challenges, and triumphs of some of the Bible’s most interesting women (Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary). Join us from Aug 4–Sept 1 from 9 am to 10:30 am in Venue 2.  The Study is free, you just purchase the book in advance.  Childcare is available if we have a minimum of 5 kids! Register here.


5. Ready to take the plunge of a lifetime? GET BAPTIZED!

I want to invite you to take the next step in your discipleship journey by being baptized during our weekend services this Sunday, July 24th! Being baptized is a step you take to publicly declare that you belong to Jesus and prophetically invite His resurrection power into your life. If you’re ready to be baptized, sign up here. If you have never been baptized or have recently given your life to Jesus, this is your next step!


6. Dedicate your child this month!

Four times a year we provide a moment in our weekend services for child dedications. This is your opportunity to commit to the Lord that you will responsibly care for that which He has entrusted to you—giving your child love, instruction, and discipline! Most importantly, you are committing to give him or her a clear example of what it means to love Jesus with all of your heart. Child dedications are taking place next month on Sunday, July 31st at 9 am + 11 am services. The last day to register is Monday, July 25th to allow our team time to prepare for every one of our honored guests. Sign Up today!


Have an awesome rest of your week! I’m looking forward to seeing you this weekend! 

Rachel Hanson
