Grace Connect leaders met here on campus this past Tuesday. We had church leaders and missionaries from all over Southern California. Our speaker of the day was Tom Hocking from Bellflower. We ate lunch next door at Mr. Giant. Bob Hetzler helped set up and clean up afterwards. Thank you, Bob.
Pictures from our Christmas banquet on December 4th are on the monitor in the lobby for you to stop by and review. You can download a copy of your table photo from our church Facebook page.
This coming week will be quiet here on campus with most Bible study groups on break for the holidays.
I am excited for all the toys you collected and shared this season. Fred Jordan Mission is handing them out.
We put out a church sign in the Plaza on voting day last month. Lydia saw the sign and joined us in worship last Sunday as a result of seeing the sign.
Our missionary partner, KYLE CHERRYHOLMES, will be landing at LAX tomorrow. He hopes to connect with us during his short visit home here with family. We will try to let you know when and where.
I hope you will set aside one hour this coming Saturday for our Christmas Eve Service in our Lobby. It’s special time of Scripture and singing the songs of Christmas. If your family would like to share a story or song or testimony during this time, let me know right away.
And Christmas morning we will meet together here on campus for an hour of worship of the Lord before we part company for the holiday.
