December 4, 2022

The National Institute of Mental Health reports that 8.4% of American adults experienced depression in the last year.  Depression isn’t sadness over a loss or disappointment.  It’s a deep-seated misery that a person can’t seem to shake.  The Christmas season can actually increase depression as people think, “I should be happy this time of year, but I’m not.  What’s wrong with me?”  Also, longer hours of darkness can add to depression. 

What do you do to chase away the gloom?  Pray?  Ask God to fill you with his Spirit, giving you the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-25)?  Read the Bible?  Quote Scripture?  Call a friend or family member?  Sing a happy song?  Listen to your favorite music?  Watch your favorite show?  Read a novel?  Take a walk?  See a counselor?  Go to church?  Serve others? 

Come, ready to share this Sunday as we talk about “Say Bye to the Gloom.”  I’ll be preaching from Isaiah 9:1-7, and speaking about “See the Darkness Give Way to Light,” verses 1-5; and “See the Child of Light,” verses 6-7.  We’re kicking off the Christmas season with an amazing prophecy from Isaiah, written 700 years before Jesus was born in Bethlehem.

Saturday at 8:00 join us for our Men’s Breakfast with the best bacon west of the Mississippi.  Ed Stewart will lead us in our prayer time.  I’ll do a devotion on “Why Celebrate Christ’s Birth on December 25?”

Please sign up to help with our Live Nativity Dec. 16-19.  Hundreds of people will come to see our outdoor displays of the Christmas Story and to hear the Good News, but we need everyone in our church to participate.  Serving Jesus will give you joy.

Remember this year to sing, “Joy to the World!  The Lord Is Come!”

Life Group (Small Group Bible Studies)

El Camino Baptist Church
Life Group Bible Study
Mission and Vision

Our vision at El Camino Baptist Church is to help our people become true disciples of Christ in the simplest way possible by helping them Love, Grow, and Serve.


Love – Love God, neighbor, and the un-reached world


Grow – in likeness of Christ through the fellowship of the church


Serve – Being affirmed in their gifts and call, members take on opportunities to serve on ministry teams, our community, and serve local and foreign missions


Generosity runs throughout these as a virtue to endorse and give the church its mission.


Our Life Group Bible Study Ministry fits into the second of those components, Grow. We need to be immersed in the truth and held accountable for growing by God’s people in fellowship with one another in a weekly Life Group Bible Study.


As the members of our Life Group Bible Studies grow, we will grow in the other two areas , Loving God, our neighbors, and the unreached world, and Serving in ministry at El Camino Baptist Church, our community, and  missions.


If you would like to host or facilitate a Life Group, please contact our Life Group Director, Carl Turner by email, carl@elcaminobaptist.org, calling the church office, (916) 488-1522, or click here to complete the Life Group Interest Form.
