-Thanks. We appreciate our media ministry (Ryan Lee, Kenneth Kuk, John Lee, and others) for making online worship possible to many.
-Sunday Worship. This Sunday, we will worship both in-person and online as we live-stream our Omega Service. We will have our first of three guest preachers, as we are privileged to have pastor Chris Ogden from Horizon West Church.
-Focus. As a church, our aims during this seasons are four-fold: connect, encourage, pray, serve. Shepherds should communicate this to their members and teachers to their students.
-Prayer Meeting. Our prayer meetings will continue on Zoom on Wednesdays from 7.30-9pm. Prayer meeting links will be emailed out on Wednesday morning. All are welcome to join in prayer and fellowship.
-Fasting Week. Several times a year, we engage in church-wide fasting and prayer. We will be fasting dinners (after 4pm) from Monday through Friday of next week (August 3-7) to pray for two specific prayer topics: the new school year and the next generation of believers. Join us as we seek God for this.
-All Church Prayer Meeting. Several times a year, we have morning prayer services for our entire church. These typically happen at times when families are together (holidays, start/end of school, etc). Our next all-church family morning prayer service will be Saturday, August 8 at 6am in the Vision Sanctuary. Youth Director Josiah will be sharing a 10-15 minute devotional followed by times of personal/family prayer. Due to COVID, pastors will not be praying for people afterwards.
-New Playground. Thanks to Nathan Mullins and Rick Terrell and the many who have been serving so faithfully to build a playground for our children. We are about a week away from completion. Saturday will be a big day as we want a heavy push from our Harvesters to finish the task. All who want to serve can come at 8 am. Steak lunch will be served afterwards. If you can serve and would like to be added to a Kakao Group chat for immediate updates, talk to Rick ([email protected]) or talk to Nathan for more information.
-Christian Service Center (Daily Bread). This organization downtown is in need of food donations, cash donations and volunteers to serve lunch over the next three Tuesdays. Talk to Aaron Hines for info.
-Cleaning Ministry. As we make our facilities as safe as possible, talk to Eugene Kwak if you’d like to be part of our cleaning ministry.
-Lawncare. Talk to Aaron Hines if you can serve the Lord by grass-cutting and lawn-care on Saturdays.
