Bob Hetzler has left Whittier and is at Momentum Youth Conference which is being held at Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Indiana starting this coming Tuesday. Bob returns to us on July 26.
The theme for Momentum 2017 is The Comeback! Every one of us is in need of a "comeback!" Our current culture is filled with extensive distractions and endless temptations. It is so difficult to maintain any level of godliness and purity. We can easily feel like the pressure and expectations are just too much. Maybe you feel lost in sin and shame, knowing exactly where you've fallen short, or maybe you are exhausted from striving to be "good" and earning God's approval.
Our own Carolyn Peak was in the hospital a few days this week. Claudia and I along with Betsy Morris had dinner with her at Corner Bakery on Wednesday evening. You will hopefully be able to greet her this morning.
We welcome Pastor Paul Hoffman to our pulpit here at Community this morning.
My message of July 9th was one of my rare messages from the book of Revelation. I tackled Revelation 21-22. I asked the questions of WHAT WILL THE NEW HEAVEN AND EARTH BE LIKE and WHO WILL BE THERE?
Concerts in the Park is tomorrow night at 7pm in the park across from our house. We are returning from our road trip tomorrow afternoon and plan on arriving to join you for the evening concert. Join Claudia and I in the cool shade in our front yard.
The Memorial Service for Dr. Wayne Flory will be Sunday afternoon, August 13 at 1:30 pm. It will be at Los Altos Grace Brethren Church, 6565 Stearns St. in Long Beach.
God’s best to you,
