Dear Friends and Family (Ohana):
If you want to build and strengthen your faith, one of the key habits you’ll need to develop as a lifestyle is to hear the Word of Christ (God) being spoken by somebody. But, here’s where your faith will be built and strengthened still more – it’s when you make it a habit, and a lifestyle of hearing yourself speak the Word of Christ (God)! “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.” (Romans 10:17 NASB). Amen to that!
CHRISTMAS is just a few weeks away, and NOW is the time to start inviting your friends and family to our Christmas Service on Sunday, December 23 AND, our CHRISTMAS “CANDLELIGHT” SERVICE on MONDAY, December 24 at 7:00 p.m. Remember, Christmas is one of the seasons where people are most open to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and going to a church! Let’s not disappoint them. Make the invite, and keep inviting…don’t give up! Why – because studies have shown people tend to need numerous invites before they respond.
Our Missions Team will be leaving for L.A. to partner with the Dream Center team to minister to those on Skid Row this week. Please keep them in your prayers! However, due to the unrest happening at the boarder, they cancelled their outreach trip in Mexico! But, were able to raise $3,500 to provide Christmas Gift boxes to the less fortunate children of the impoverished town of Vista Marina! The children will receive their gift boxes before Christmas! Praise God!
