“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” – Philippians 4:6
We are One in the Spirit, We are One in the Lord
"For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the firmness of your faith in Christ." - Col. 2:5
Due to the recent regulations set forth in the state of California in regards to COVID-19, for a time we are going to have to move to more of a "house church" format.
We are encouraging a kind of “guided at-home service” that individuals or families can do together. There will be three parts to the service:
First, there will be study questions to lead you in study, prepared by whoever would be teaching/preaching that week (1 Tim. 4:12-13)
Second, there will be suggested songs with lyrics that complement the study (Eph. 5:19, Col. 3:16)
Third, we will be providing some specifics to focus on in prayer. (1 Tim. 2:8)
All of this will be available on the website by Saturday evening each week. Just follow the links in the right-hand column of this page for each week to find links to the study guides (to download and print), songs to sing (lyrics and/or lyric videos provided for each), and prayer guides.
While it pains us to see our church family apart from each other, we believe this format to be best until we have a little more clarity on the possible future spread of the virus in our community. We want to be clear: we do not think this a sufficient longer-term solution, but we do believe it may help to focus us in the Word and in Prayer even when apart from each other in person. We do not want to be negligent with respect to the danger this virus poses. If our community continues to avoid infection and the governor lifts the mandated order to stay home, it is our hope that we will be able to resume meeting all together soon.
