September 27

Worship Outside

no  reservations required

We hope we are becoming better at the Outside Worship Service.  In fact some of the attendees say they really enjoy the liberated feeling which comes from the outside non-traditional style of worship.  While it appears the Coronavirus is going to be with for some time, we are looking at ways we can safely continue the church's mission of building our community in Christ.  We have instituted additional activities such as the Wednesday ZOOM Bible Study/Prayer/Worship along with  Women to Women and bell ringing.  Times and days are listed below.


Now join us for our service from September 27 as we Worship Outside.

October Mission of the Month

Impact

Since the beginning the Christian Mission has been to deliver the message of Jesus through both the Word and actions.  This is a hands-on approach and IMPACT delivers on both these levels.


From the IMPACT website here is the IMPACT Mission, Vision and Practical Application:

 IMPACT's Mission: is to form, train and send teams, prepared to serve Christ and his Church through cross-cultural mission journeys that nurture the ministries of global partners and train participants to be missionaries at home.

IMPACT's Vision: is to cultivate relationships that mutually impact Christians and ministries across the globe for Christ and his Kingdom. 

IMPACT journeysTeams spend 3 days in training together before being sent out to countries around the world to serve for 1-3 weeks.  Ministry opportunities vary from country to country visit Current Trips for information on trips being offered this year.

every Wednesday

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.
