for the week beginning Sunday, August 17, 2014

The Summer Sunday speaker on August 10th was Bob Hetzler who brought us a message on the conversation Pilate had with Jesus recorded in John 18. We also enjoyed some moments of praising the Lord in song with Gabriel Cortez. Join me today at 5:30 for another special evening with a speaker you have never heard before at Summer Sunday.

Join us for the Dodger game this coming Saturday evening. Tickets are $6. Speak with my wife, Claudia, today if you are interested in getting ticket(s). This is with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes Dodger affiliate.

We have had some special Monday evening concerts in the park at our Todd house this summer but they have ended until 2015. I only say it once a year so today I am telling you, “DON’T COME TO MY HOUSE TOMORROW NIGHT.” And yes, sometimes you knock or come by and that is ok but there are no more concerts.

I went with my wife to the doctor’s office for some tests she had this week. While we were sitting in the lobby a nurse came out to us and offered us each a pill box ( plus choice of color). I thought, “NO ONE HAS EVER OFFERED ME A PILL BOX IN MY LIFE.” I chose the green pill box. I was visiting Ed Ramos in the hospital a short while later and I mentioned the pill box episode to him. He said something about YOU’RE THAT AGE NOW. 

Our Daily Bread is available in the lobby today for September through November. We ran out of the current supply.

A group of our youth/adults went up to Forest Home just yesterday to help with the cleanup of the camp because of the flash floods that hit them two weeks ago.

We continue our summer series, GREAT STORIES OF THE BIBLE, this morning. In our last message Tim Ramos and I preached on God’s instruction to Jonah to preach in Nineveh. Today we consider a somewhat obscure person in the Bible that saved the Jews from annihilation.

Speak with me today if you are interested in being baptized on August 31.

We have already started saying goodbye to our out of state college students. Christopher Bates and Tori Bates are now (as of tonight) on campus at Arizona Christian University and Sam is headed to Grace College in Indiana.

God’s best to you,

Pastor Richard
