We usually go to a Super Bowl Party but this year Claudia was sick so we celebrated with our living room tv and Corner Bakery snacks. I left the room for the first half then headed over to church for Walking in the Word. I felt like i wasn’t missing anything until I checked the score afterwards and discovered the game was in overtime. Wow! What a second-half game I missed. Back to the Super Bowl Sunday Game next year, Lord willing, with a healthy wife.

Sign up for the Impact Prayer Seminar will be held on March 21-22. This is a city-wide two day teaching. I’ve put some Info Cards at the Information Center for you today.

Weekly Alanon meetings will be starting here on campus on Wednesday evening, March 1 at 7pm. This is a support/encouragement group for people who have been negatively impacted by alcoholism. These weekly meetings will be using our group meeting rooms at our 8031 Greenleaf building. Contact Theresa Bartholomew for more info at (626) 806-8704. Or talk to me.

Our church sign out on Greenleaf now has the time of our Sunday morning service (10:45am) posted on it. Two different families that have visited us on Sundays recently said they had difficulty finding out what time we gathered for worship.

We observed a city-wide day of prayer around the corner from us at at the local Salvation Army Chapel. Pastors and churches came together all day for prayer for specific topics. I led in prayer at 2pm for the homeless in our city.

We are wrapping up our studies in the book of Colossians today. Last Sunday we walked through Colossians 4:2-6 where we saw the points to 1) pray for one, 2) act in love and 3) speak when you have the chance. Today we TAKE ON THE WORLD WITH A SMILE and review the book of Colossians.

FUTURE SAILOR SANDOVAL will be SAILOR SANDOVAL in just a few days. We prayed and said our farewells with Joseph yesterday.

God’s blessings on you,

Pastor Richard
