God Encounters–Cornelius 9-21-2019

“Cornelius’ regular practice of the spiritual discipline of prayer, meditation and serving others prepared him to respond to the Spirit of God calling him to action. By acting, not only was Cornelius transformed, but also the entire Christian church.” –Pastor Nate Elias

God Encounters – Elijah 08-31-2019

No matter how much effort we put into being perfect, we do and will continue to make mistakes. Too often we fear God’s response to our incomplete perfection. God shows through His encounter with Elijah that he actually wants us to realize our incomplete perfection. That’s when He goes to work to transform us. —-Pastor Nate Elias

God Encounters – Hannah 8-24-2019

“One of the unrealized hindrances to the Christian experiencing the fullness of God in one’s life is built up resentment and hurt. God invites each of us into forgiveness and healing that opens our hearts to a greater encounter with Him.” –Pastor Nate Elias

God Encounters–Abram 8-10-2019

One of the popular attractions in California is Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.  In Scripture, there are individuals described as having extraordinary encounters with God which have become larger than life.  Today, we look at how God shaped Abram’s life through direct personal encounters.

Finally Free 7-27-2019

Our mission is to provide refugee families with the education, help, and resources (food, clothing, furniture, household goods, etc.) that they so desperately need. We are passionate about providing a bright future for refugee children and believe a true education leads to that future. We use philanthropy to provide tuition for refugee children to attend a private SDA school where they can grow academically and in a relationship with Christ. 

Getting Past Friendly 7-20-2019

“For years we’ve referred to ourselves as a friendly church. What does that mean? How deep does that go? What are other attributes that we might also embody? We’ll look at the story of Jesus and the woman at the well to explore this.                                                                                                                                                                       Elder Brian Cummings           

A Celebration 7-13-2019

“I think that in the midst of the complexities and messiness of life we forget to look at the moments when we have peace and joy.  Though it isn’t one of the 10 commandments, I think because of the repetition of God inviting us to CELEBRATE we should be paying more attention to it.  Why don’t we do that?  Why not CELEBRATE today what God has done for you and I?”                                                                                                                                                                                Pastor Tony Montenegro
