Our stewardship theme for this season is: Stewards of Hope: A story of our resilient church in 2020.  We have endured through some challenging months, but in these moments we have found ways to connect and reconnect.  We have discovered ways to serve our greater community.  We have refreshed our spirits with great hope and courage through meaningful worship.  This church is still here because of our trust in God and our partnership with one another as a Spirit-filled community.   In the weeks to come, you will hear testimonies from our members on how this church was resilient and continues to be resilient in a new world.  You will also see video testimonies from people, which will be uploaded over social media.  We will also put into place online giving before Stewardship and Thanksgiving Sunday, which is Sunday November 22nd.   I have to acknowledge that the way we are leading church is different than the way we have done it in the past.  But, what a blessing it is for us to explore new paths of doing ministry, which ultimately remind us that we are still here!  Here are some key events coming up for all of us here at church:


October 25th:  Rose Garden Dedication, All Saints Day, Reformation Sunday

November 1st: Bible Sunday, Election Day lunch, discussion and prayer after worship.

November 22nd: Stewardship and Thanksgiving Sunday. 

On-campus Bible Study has begun. We meet every Tuesday at 10:00 A.M. in Fellowship Hall.

*Everyone must wear a Face Mask

*Follow the State of California "Physical Distancing" guidelines, maintain six (6) feet between others.

*Doors will remain open for fresh air.

*Everything will be disinfected after every Bible Study.

Save the Date It’s that time of year again . . . Adopt a Family. This year we once again have ten (10) adoptees including a family of five (5) (four (4) of whom are children). Sunday at church you can begin the adoption.  Select an angel from the big red table, read the story and go shopping. Each angel/adoptee will have two adopters.  This way Santa can be very generous.  New and unwrapped gifts will be collected on Sunday November 22nd and 29th

Angel Wing Cards: The heat may force the drive-in service to stop, but neither heat nor Covid-19 will stop the need for purchasing and sending cards!  What better thing to do than to reach out and to someone you care about with a card they can hold, look at, and think of you!!   Angel Wings cards can be purchased by calling Tina Talley (760-310-6158 or 760-741-2199).  We will set up a time and place to meet for you to “shop” - my house or yours, a park or the church parking lot! 

Remember that your purchase of Angel Wings cards supports the work of our church!

The Church Office is not open to the public but Alma Rodriguez will be in the Office on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M.. If you have a need or a question, feel free to call or email her at and she will respond to you as soon as she is able to. If for some reason you need to come to the church office please call first.
