WE LAUNCHED A NEW MINISTRY
by Pastor Richard Todd
for the week beginning Sunday, November 23, 2014
Sunday evening, November 16th at 6:30pm our newest ministry was launched. It is called 8109 and is a service for young adults. Andy, Lindsey and Kyle and the team transformed the lobby and auditorium area after the conclusion of our morning service. You can follow their connections and announcements on Facebook. Just type in “8109.”
Just yesterday a group of our youth and sponsors were at the Union Rescue Mission to help prepare for the big Thanksgiving Feast where they serve thousands of men, women and children a special meal right on the streets of LA. Our youth voted to go and work all night to help prepare all the food for the masses that come for the feast. So today and today only, if you see one of our youth yawn during my message, just whisper a silent PTL for their service this weekend.
Join me this Thursday, Thanksgiving morning, at 10am in our Chapel for 60 minutes (not 61 minutes) of giving thanks to the Lord. We sing and pray and give testimony but no sermon.
The Daily Breads that begin December 1 have arrived and we have put a supply of them at the Information Center for you. We ran out of the Daily Breads that end November 30 for the most recent election we had earlier this month.
Looking for a simple Thanksgiving tract? I’ve put a few at the Information Center for to pick one up today.
I have also placed some copies of A PRAYER FOR THANKSGIVING at the Information Center for you to pick one up.
November 16th we tackled yet another GREAT STORY OF THE BIBLE from our series by that name. We opened to Joshua 1-6 and learned from the examples of God’s people who let God take the credit for the great victory.
It usually happens the day after Thanksgiving and it is called DINE N DECORATE. It’s a bunch of you gals that gather here on campus and enjoy home made chili and cornbread and decorate the church for the upcoming Christmas season. And Starbucks usually shows up along the way.
