December Giving

Thanks to your generousity, we were able to finish off 2007 strong. Instead of a shortfall, we experienced a $6900 surplus in our regular giving and on top of this, we also received $6000 in “Gift to the King” giving. This giving has allowed us to fund some underfunded ministries. Let’s take a moment to give thanks to the Lord!

We're Moving!

We’re moving our weekend services back to Corona Hills

The Background - As many of you know, a church has been leasing our Corona Hill Facility on Sunday morning. Their monthly payment of $6000 makes it possible for us to keep our Corona Hills facility while we meet at Santiago.

Last Week - We received a letter from the church giving us 30 days notice. Their financial situation requires them to move out of our building early. Their last Sunday in our building will be January 13th.

What it means for us- Without their rent, we can’t afford to make payment on two facilities, and since we are still bound by our lease at Corona Hills, we need to move our morning services to our Corona Hills facility and stop meeting at Santiago.

When it Will Happen - Our first Sunday at Corona Hills will be January 20th.
For More Information - Check out our FAQ

Christmas Eve Monday, December 24th!

You're invited to our Christmas Eve service on Monday, December 24th at 5:30pm at our Corona Hills location.

The Connection Between the gospel of Luke and the book of Acts?

This Sunday is the beginning of our study through the book of Luke. Here is a quiz question? What is the connection between the book of Luke and the book of Acts? Read Luke 1:1-4 and the Acts 1:1-2 and see if you can make the connection.

Note from Mike Hannah

On Sunday Mike Wagner challenged members to take one of the invitation postcards to our new Christmas series and do one of three things with it....

1)  invite someone to church
2)  Leave the invitation somewhere public - like a doctor's waiting room
3)  Put it on your refrigerator and remember to pray for the series

I did all three. After church on Sunday I gave an invitation to the guy we buy firewood from .  I left one at a coffee shop I go to, and I put one on our refrigerator to remind me to pray.  Above is a picture of it on our fridge. 

How about you?  Will you take the challenge to do at least one?

Q and A on the Weekend Message - Part 2

During the weekend service Mike Hannah teaches the Bible. We're going to do a few questions and answers on the weekend message. This week's question is....

Question – How long does it take you to prepare a message.

Answer – It really varies from week to week. Some weeks are crazy and I don’t have as much time to study, some weeks are more “normal”. Likewise, some messages come together quicker, some come together slower. But I would say on average - 10 – 12 hours.
