We worship together outdoors AND online. Hope you are blessed!
September 20, 2020
What a beautiful day we had today at worship!
God is good! It wasn't too hot and we had a VERY NICE breeze blowing by us throughout the service.
We set up a "social distanced" outside church again under the jacaranda trees.
After Brother Al led us in singing with Marlene playing the electric keyboard for us, we continued on with the first chapter of the Gospel of John...we are almost finished with John 1. We should finish up John 1 NEXT Sunday (and then of course, we will continue to John 2, 3, etc.
This is NOT going to be a quick tour of John. We are delving deeply into this wonderful Gospel.
We look forward to you joining us next weekend, if you can make it live.
Of course we will continue to keep uploading the sermon and providing the YouTube versions of the songs that we sang during worship. So even if you cannot join us, we'd still like to pray for you. Give us a call or email Pastor Harvey at firstname.lastname@example.org to request prayer.
COVID-19 Protocols in Our Church
We sanitize after each service...
social distance amongst congregants...
require a face mask...
and remind folks if they feel sick, then they should stay home...
Yes! We are still meeting outside.
Here are some photos of what our outdoor worship area
looks like before the folks show up.
We hope to see YOU in one of these social distanced chairs with us soon!
We continue covet your prayers at this time.
Again, this weekend we have prepared a worship page for you that includes...
Thursday Night's Bible Study PowerPoint AND the Zoom meeting recording.
The Children's Sunday School Lesson from Mrs. Denise...
some great YouTube versions of Christian Hymns and contemporary songs...
We continue our in depth study and preaching from the Gospel of John today.
Today was John 1:19-34 - John's Witness of Jesus
We hope this continues to bless YOU and draws you closer to God.
Remember, Denise and I are a phone call away if you want to pray together or just chat. (Also remember that God is NOT far away, He has promised that He would never leave us - can I get an "Amen"!)
And don't forget to comment below about anything that we can help you with.
Or any conversation you would like to start.
Thanks for all of your support!
For Him and His Kingdom,
Pastors Harvey & Denise

After singing a couple of songs, then as a congregation we read together aloud the following scripture...
1 John 2:7-14 (NASB)
7 Beloved, I am not writing a new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning; the old commandment is the word which you have heard.
8 On the other hand, I am writing a new commandment to you, which is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true Light is already shining.
9 The one who says he is in the Light and yet hates his brother is in the darkness until now.
10 The one who loves his brother abides in the Light and there is no cause for stumbling in him.
11 But the one who hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going because the darkness has blinded his eyes.
12 I am writing to you, little children, because your sins have been forgiven you for His name’s sake.
13 I am writing to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I have written to you, children, because you know the Father.
14 I have written to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one.
