Dear Friends and Family (Ohana):
BREAKOUT YEAR 2019!
A man whose hand was withered was in a church when Jesus entered. Jesus said to the man “…Get up and come forward…stretch out your hand.” (Mark 3:3 & 5 NASB). Scripture says, the man stretched out his hand, and his hand was restored. Notice, Jesus wasn’t specific about which hand to stretch out. He didn’t say “stretch out your withered hand”. He simply said “hand”. The man had a choice to stretch out his un-withered; his good hand OR the hand that was withered.
Good thing the man didn’t hide his withered hand, and stretch out his good hand to Jesus. Unfortunately, that’s what we tend to do. We stretch out our good hand; our strengths to Jesus. We show Jesus the “good” side about us; and hide our flawed side, our “withered” side.
Jesus is full of compassion, grace, and mercy! Stretching out what’s withered, is stretching out what matters for your future. Stretch out what’s withered in your life to Jesus, and you watch - a breakout of restoration awaits you!
Join us at Wednesday Night Service, as “Life Group” Director, GUY BECNAL shares an empowering message titled “UNPLUGGED”. Invite your friends and family! Then, on Sunday, I’ll be opening a NEW MESSAGE SERIES called “RELEASE THE BLESSING”! We’ll be showing some incredible, and amazing video testimonies that will touch your heart throughout this series!

What an amazing “LEADERSHIP SUMMIT 2019” we had at our church this past Saturday, with Pastor Wayne Cordeiro! We hosted 270 attendees – which included Pastors, Leaders, and emerging leaders from 28 other churches! A huge “THANK YOU” to our incredible team of 80 volunteers, leaders and staff for making this year’s Summit an amazing success! One Pastor said “…it was so impactful, you have no idea…!”; another said “What can we say, another great conference...”
