6/12/2022 CONNECTION NEWS
We have reopened our church on Sundays. Those planning to attend in person are required to wear a mask and have their temperature checked at the gate. We will offer children and youth ministry during our service. Please arrive at church early for the screening process. The gates will be closed at 9:45 AM.
Sunday Service John Stott, a world renowned theologian, made this observation about the church. He said, “I see numerical growth—in some places incredible growth—but too often without depth.” Pastor Ken will address the need for depth and transformation in our discipleship this Sunday. You can join us in person or watch the live service through Zoom.

About 90 youth and 30 parents are away this weekend at Pepperdine University for a retreat. Let's pray that the Spirit of God will move and transform their hearts, and build closer relationships with others.
Vibrant Community Groups
Robert Putnam writes that sociologists distinguish between two kinds of connections: bonding and bridging. Bonding happens when people who perceive themselves to be similar develop deeper connections, but bridging activities involve people who have been separated. Here are the places where you can connect with people.
