Today my wife and I joined as members San Clemente Presbyterian Church. We grew up in separate Presbyterian churches, met at Bel Air Presbyterian and were married there. Last year we moved to San Clemente, but that is not why we chose SCPC. We are blessed to have good leadership that is extremely caring and welcoming. The members are growing in their faith and reaching out to others in the community and beyond.
Each new members class receives a kind reception that Pastor Tod and his wife host at their home. All 35 members were invited over for dessert and a nice time to socialize. The new members enjoyed their hospitality and their beautiful home along with several of the elders of the church. Pastor Tod inspired me to start this blog. His blog It Takes a Church is very thought provoking while giving a glimpse into what type of community we are building at SCPC.
We enjoyed getting to know several of the new members that were in our class. It is nice to belong to a wonderful community of people, and SCPC truly is a "Community for the community."
