We had all sorts of events in the space of seven days that began with Palm Sunday services including communion. Good Friday services included the Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast and our own Good Friday service at noon. Then Resurrection Sunday Sunrise Services to choose from and our own Easter service then it was all over. It passes too quick. I like the 25 days of Advent better.
Rejoice with me at those that turned to Christ in faith over this most recent Easter holiday.
Congratulations to Lucas Alexander Calvert and his parents, Brian and Annie, in the family dedication we had on Easter Sunday for their son, Lucas. I am most blest when the father and mother stands with me and shares their commitment to live a godly life as an example in their family. I also enjoy the father praying for his son. The family picture they took after the service included our own Aunt Mona Castro and Cousin Sarah and grandma.
Our church business meeting is today right after the conclusion of the morning service. Don’t go to lunch and come back. Come to the meeting in the Fellowship Hall then go to lunch afterwards.
National Day of Prayer is just around the corner on Thursday, May 4th. I usually gather with many believers at Whittier City Hall steps for prayer with a group of others at 6pm. Plan to attend. The theme for 2017 is based on Daniel 9:19, which says, “O Lord, Listen! O Lord, Forgive! O Lord, Hear and Act! For Your Sake, O My God...”.
God’s best to you,
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
YOU ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO WEAR DODGER SHIRTS, POPPY.
One of you gave me and my son and Henry Pompa a LAS VEGAS RAIDERS shirt and we posed after Easter Sunday services wearing the shirts endorsing the soon to be Las Vegas Raiders. My grandson, Ryan, informed me with these words that I am a Dodgers fan for life. Right Angel Garcia and Mando?
