Ed Waken shared a special message here at Community on June 25 about BEING DIFFERENT ENOUGH TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Ed and his wife, Debbie, have been in Los Angeles in recent days on vacation from the Phoenix area (think HOT TEMPERATURES of up to 122 degrees) where Ed Pastors Valley Life Church. Ed was part of our pastoral staff in the 1980s and 1990s prior to planting Valley Life. Ed’s message is worth listening to and is posted at our church website at whittierbrethren.org

NEWS UPDATE ON PASTOR TOM HUGHES. Pastor Tom was Lead Pastor here in the 1980s and now lives in Bakersfield. His son, Tom attends church there with relatives of our Sapp family. Pastor Tom is not going to have spinal tap surgery because of his heart condition and age. The doctors recommended against it. Tom and the family both agree to LET GOD DECIDE WHEN IT’S TIME.
Today’s message relates to the upcoming holiday and our country: WHAT HOLDS US UP IN TROUBLED TIMES LIKE THIS? I have inserted an outline to assist your study.
There is no Concert in the Park July 3rd. The next concert is July 10th. See you then.
Hope you have a happy 4th of July.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
BRING THAT NICE SWEET LADY WITH YOU THAT YOU BROUGHT LAST YEAR.
Claudia and I attend a neighborhood breakfast each year in Whittier only July 4th. We took one of you with us to the gathering last year and when the host family invited us for the 2017 breakfast they said these words. I love it when my unsaved friends speak so admiringly of my church family and I love it when I can say SHE IS PART OF MY CHURCH FAMILY. Many of the nicest people I know are church going folks.
