May 9, 2021


Grace Hall was a successful opera singer, teacher and painter.  She actually made more money than her husband who was a physician.  She taught her six children love for books and the arts.  One of those children became the great Nobel Prize winner, Ernest Hemingway.  After returning home wounded from World War I, he engaged in riotous living.  In a letter his mother warned him that a mother’s love is like a bank. She’d deposited a lot in the bank for him, but he had overdrawn by neglecting his duties to God and the Lord Jesus Christ.  He ignored her letter.  In fact, he hated her.  Yet he had grown to be more like her than any of his siblings.  He ended up killing himself at the age of 61.  Perhaps in some ways his misery can be traced back to his failure to care for his mother.

Sunday, Mother’s Day, I’m speaking on “Care” from John 19:16-27.  We’ll see Jesus care for his mother even from the cross.  The outline is, 1) “Care about the King” (verses 16-22), 2) “Care about Scripture” (verses 23-24) and 3) “Care about Your Mother” (verses 25-27).  Please join us!

Saturday the women have a very special breakfast at 9:00 in the Fellowship Hall.

The Memorial Service for Bobbie Flanders will be Friday, May 14, at 2:00 in our worship center.  Then we’ll have dessert and punch in the Fellowship Hall.  This will be followed by spreading her ashes at Lotus Park at 950 Lotus Road, Lotus, California.  Please join us in honoring the amazing lady who is now soaring higher than the angels!

2021 Vaction Bible School

Pack your bags and grab your gear, VBS 2021 is headed to present-day Israel where an epic adventure of discovery awaits. Discover amazing finds and exciting evidence that proves biblical events were not just stories. They really happened! At Destination Dig, kids will unearth more than just dirt. They will discover real-life archaeological finds that have helped to uncover the truth about Jesus.

We invite you and your kids to join us this summer for a week of fun! Kids will enjoy various activities: crafts, music, recreation, missions, bible study, and worship. At VBS summer camp we have classes for children entering 1st through 12th grade in the fall, but we also have two adult classes available - one in English and one in Spanish. Dig in and follow along with the bible studies that the children will be learning.   

In response to COVID, we are providing two ways in which you can participate. The first option is to join us in-person as in years past. Precautions will be in place and masks will be required. The second option is to join us virtually where you can participate from home. If you choose to join us virtually, pre-recorded videos will be posted for the week online and we will provide a VBS packet with all the supplies your child(ren) need to follow along for the week. Packets for online participants will be available for pick up beginning Sunday, June 27th in the church office during regular business hours (Monday - Friday, 9 am - 5 pm).  

We look forward to seeing you in July!
