I REALLY ENJOYED THAT GOOPY DESSERT!
by Pastor Richard Todd
for the week beginning Sunday, December 14, 2014
Great party on December 7th. I met quite a few of your friends and family during the evening. I really enjoyed that goopy dessert you needed a spoon to get all the good stuff with. You can view some of the pictures from the evening on the monitor in the lobby today plus on our church Facebook page.
Consider attending the conference "OnMission: A Day to Connect & Equip for Global Local Mission" which will be held January 24, from 9am-3pm at Grace Church of Orange. There's a flyer at the Information Center for you to pick up.
Pray for the 8109 service here on campus today at 6:30. Questions? Ask Andy or Lindsey or Kyle.
Join me for our Christmas Eve service at 6pm here on campus.
My apologies to those of you who were looking for a table decorating contest during the December 7th Christmas Party. I was in error. Every table is a work of art and the team do not want to single out one table over any other.
Hanukah is a Jewish holiday that begins on December 16 and ends on December 24. Want to know more about it so you can share Christ with your Jewish friends? I’ve put some copies of a fact sheet at the Information Center for you to pick up.
Put Ed & Joyce Faranda’s Christmas yard light display (Gena also contributes) on your LET’S GO SEE SOME CHRISTMAS LIGHTS list. The lights are co-ordinated with music and a message that you hear on your FM car radio. They live at 5203 Ashworth Street in Lakewood. If you can’t drive to see the dancing lights, then go to www.dancingwithlights.com and get a glimpse of what they are doing. The music includes songs that you will never hear at Starbucks because they proclaim the Savior’s birth plus a reading of the Luke 2 account and also a lighting of the Advent candles. Saturday evening, December 20 from 7pm to 9:30pm the Farandas are having what you might call an OPEN HOUSE for their light display (everyone welcome but bring a dessert to share if possible).
I want you to hear the Operation Christmas Shoebox story Larry Olguin will share today.
Our message of December 14 will be a study in Luke 11:33-36.
Wishing you God’s joy, peace and love always,
