January 17

Worship Outside

What a beautiful day.  By 9:30 the temperature was climbing into the mid 70s and even though the wind was starting to build the Bell Choir refused to let the wind put a damper on the morning.


The big problem was the camera recording the service.  While it recorded the first two sets of Hand Bell Choir offerings, Steve's Call To Worship and Gordon reading the scriptures it only saved the first half of Pastor Ron's message.  We will do better next week.


Join us for the first half of our Sunday Service, January 17 Worship Outside.

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.
