for the week beginning Sunday, October 19, 2014

By now you’ve probably read the story coming out of Houston, Texas this week regarding pastors receiving subpoenas for some of their preaching. The separation of church and state means that we will render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s, and we will. But the preaching of the church does not belong to Caesar. There are lots of good people working with all involved to remedy this situation. Let’s pray for all involved.

The Long Beach Cornerstone Gospel Choir is presenting a great evening of toe tapping gospel music on Saturday, November 1 at the Los Altos Grace Brethren Church (6pm, 6565 Stearns Street). Admission is free. This is the Choir that we had here on our campus a while back.

I want you to know far ahead that Jesus Munoz will be preaching here on January 25, 2015. 

Operation Barnabas has been discipling students for more than 40 years to make an eternal difference. You can get their latest updates at www.operationbarnabas.net

Our World Impact moment today is a focus on a missionary partner family serving in a country that is not friendly with western missionaries. That is why we don't mention their names in print where that print goes out in internet distribution plus we don't share current pictures especially of their children.

Church Picnic pictures from October 5th are on the monitor in the lobby today for you.

And we are looking into the Scriptures today at one of the most famous Bible stories in history. All people agree.

We took a few moments in our service to celebrate the ministry a number of you have as teachers of our kids during the 9:30 Sunday School hour on October 12th. More kids are attending than a year ago under the leadership of Mary Diaz and her team.

I have put a supply of PASTOR RICHARD RECOMMENDED Halloween tracts on the table in the lobby for you to take one. If you want to purchase additional copies contact Oralia in the church office.

And today is Operation Christmas Child pickup your shoebox day in the lobby.

God’s best to you,

Pastor Richard
