June 6 Worship Service , Congregation in Praise & Prayer,  Pastor Ron's Message, and Communion

June 13 worship service

We have moved into the long hot days of summer, but they will not be long lazy days for us.  After 16 months of Coronavirus and Pandemic we have regained our Sanctuary and are preparing for an exciting and invigorating next few months as our lives start to return to something resembling our "normal".


Until this last year it never dawned on us how blessed we were to be worshiping in our own building instead of out in the elements under a tree.  We had forgotten the simple joy which comes with the gathering for After Service Coffee Hour, or looking forward to Tri-Tip Bar-B-Ques, fund raising drawings, chili dinners and Christmas Programs.


The coming year is going to be one we will indulge-in, enjoy and remember becasue we will be experiencing what we had taken from us.  Our Lord has taken us through this last episode of our lives.   Now we need to remember that we are not alone in this world and about 85% of the earth's population is still struggling with Coronavirus and the Pandemic, and they are in need of our prayers and our help.


Join us for our June 13th Worship Service.

Prayer Requests for June 13

As a Community, as a Family of Believers we believe in the power of Prayer:

Our servicemen and women and our country.

Our cities of Santa Paula, Fillmore, Ventura & our police and firemen.

Peace and unity in our country.

The people whose names are in the prayer box.

Caregivers for their loved ones - Susan, Cheryl, Dianne, Val, Elizabeth

All those with COVID.


Janice Dickenson spent Sunday afternoon in the Emergency Room getting ready for an appendectomy. She has requested prayers.

Mission Program of the Month:  Front Porch

In this time of COVID-19 the dynamic of worship is evolving from using ZOOM for studies and meetings to worshiping outside on Sunday mornings under the shade tree.  


Wednesday evenings, starting September 16, we will be asked to join with members of First Presbyterian and  Living Hope Church in Port Hueneme to hold a time for prayer, music and message on ZOOM. 


This period of about an hour is going to focus on scripture, how the gospel message fits in our lives today, spending time with our Lord in prayer, and even some special music.


At 7:00 PM on Wednesday, click on the Refresh picture above.  Your computer screen will be taken to the ZOOM website.  Type in the Meeting ID: 94 7018 5467 and click JOIN.  You will then be asked to activate  the launch application (zoom.us), click Open Link.  Next you will asked to type in the Password:  JESUS, and click JOIN.


And instantly you will join the family.  Have a Blessed time.
