The church council has worked with LSS’s Homeless 2 Home program and A Better Living organization to provide housing for four homeless people that have been staying on our church grounds. Now that we have shelter for Jody, Jill, Lynn, and Matt,  we continues to work with them until they are totally self-reliant. If you would like to know more, be involved, or would like to donate money to this homeless ministry, please contact one of the church council members. Before you make a decision, please read the below bible verses. It is hard to find people closer to us that are in need, than the homeless that are leaning against our church doors.

Proverbs 19:17 “Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.”

James 2:14-17 “What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.”

We will have another hike on Saturday, November 22, at 8 a.m. in the Santa Monica Mountains. We will meet at the top of Reseda Blvd. (southern end) at the parking lot at the very top. Then we hike for 3 miles roundtrip in the rolling hills and meadow above the valley. Beautiful views and quiet…
The trail is Fire road #30 and is a wide dirt trail with not too much of an elevation gain. When we finish, PD will lead a brief time of Bible and reflection in a tiny “chapel in the brush.”

If Jesus is real and he is King of the universe, your trust in him will be revealed by how you live your life. Jesus has all you need to live a life of harmony and satisfaction, where everything fits together.

Who doesn’t want that life?

Confirmation 2014 2

On Sunday, October 26th, we were blessed to have four young women of our community give testimony of their faith and affirm their walk with Jesus and his church. We shared an inspiring and festive service where the Holy Spirit filled the air with singing, laughter, and heartfelt love as we gathered with our extended family of faith.

Thanks to all who made this such a wonderful day for Ariana, Sam, Bella, and Jackie!
