Community Presbyterian Church

of St. Maries

Our mission is to worship God,
to proclaim and teach the message of Jesus Christ,
and to faithfully serve all God’s people.

Where are you located?

We are at 1100 College Avenue in St. Maries, ID.  The church is one block south of Main Street, directly above the city pool and park.

What do I wear?

You can wear anything to worship (just wear something, sometimes it’s a little cool in the sanctuary)  Some folks wear jeans, some shorts, some a suit and tie, but really, the short answer is, wear what you are comfortable in.  Trust us, you’ll fit in.

What is worship like?

Our worship is informal, allowing time for the sharing of prayer requests and a children's lesson. As for music, we treasure the beloved hymns of the church.  The Lord's Supper is served as an important part of our worship the first Sunday of the month. Our prayer is that everyone who enters the doors of the church, whether they are visitors or long-time attendees, will feel embraced as beloved members of the CPC family.

Where do my kids go?

Bring them with you.  The kids usually stick around for the first part of the service and then after the Children’s Message they head out to Sunday School.  If they want to stay for the whole service, of course they’re welcome.  For little ones, 0 to 5 years old there are nursery facilities downstairs in the fellowship hall.

What do you believe?

We are a community that loves Jesus and seeks to follow him. Relying on God's grace, we try to fulfill what Jesus said is the greatest commandment:  to love God with our whole heart, soul and mind and love others as ourselves.

Here's what we believe in a nutshell:  God is One in Three Persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God's Son, fully God and fully human. He lived a perfect, just, and loving earthly life teaching about the Kingdom of God. Jesus died on the cross and was raised from the dead. He lives today and is the only One who can offer true and lasting wholeness for this life and the next.  We receive this gift of salvation by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ. The Bible is God's word, inspired by the Holy Spirit. The Bible is entirely trustworthy and authoritative for our daily lives with God and with one another.
