REMEMBER WHEN WE RENTED
SPACE TO MEET ON SUNDAYS?
by Pastor Richard
for the week beginning Sunday, May 26, 2013
Remember our "old church home" at the Senior Center on Walnut? For "Serve Whittier" we will be returning to help them with an extra good house cleaning this coming Saturday morning. It's a short project. Only 8:00 to 12:00 and then the Center will close. We will be washing down chairs and tables, dusting window sills, and doing some cleaning in the kitchen. It's an easy and nice way to say "thanks again" for the time we had there and to serve a bit in our community. Please let Claudia know if you will be joining us. Remember, many hands make light work...or is that a merry heart...or short heart that's merry...? Just come and join us! 13225 Walnut St., June 1st, 8-12.

May 26 is GRAB A TRACT DAY. I’ve put a collection of tracts on the table in the lobby that I’ve received recently. Take a few and use them. And if you enjoy them then order a few more.
How about a community event Sunday afternoon, May 26, featuring Christian bands? Go to Lake Center Athletic Field 11641 Florence Ave anytime from 2PM-7PM.
I’ve put two special slides on the monitors in the lobby for you on May 26 that are related to the recent storms this week in Oklahoma.
Claudia and I are out of town this weekend of May 26 for a little R&R. Tim Ramos will be preaching from Genesis 18 and asking if anything is to hard for God to do.
We looked at getting a second wind from God in our most recent Scripture study. Do you remember which couple we studied in Luke 1? And if you remember the couple do you remember if the husband needed a second wind or the wife?
We are settling the financial accounts for our recent Mexico City trip where Fernando Becerra and I were part of the team. If you want to give towards the total cost of our trip please make your checks payable to our church and mark MEXICO CITY TRIP on the envelope. The cost was $1,200 for each of us on the team totaling $2,400 that we are working to raise.
Remember the person that said they would visit our church if I would wear the Special Olympics glasses on a Sunday? They didn’t attend on May 19 so I didn’t wear them. Stay tuned.
God’s best to you,
