Genesis 40:1-23

“I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in Me and I in him,
he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.”

Today we will look at what the Apostle John
has to say about the marks of a genuine believer, so that we may
know that we have eternal life.

Hermeneutics Workshop
How are your Bible study skills? Do you know someone who
could benefit from sound teaching on “How to Study the Bible?”
Dr. Brad Klassen, Associate Professor of Bible Exposition
at the Master’s Seminary in Sun Valley, Ca
will teach this seminar on Sunday afternoon, November 4.

Living Trust Seminar, Sunday, November 11
Why is a living trust (rather than a will) so important, especially in California?
Benefits include avoiding probate to save your family time and money,
ensuring guardianship of your children,
and durable powers of attorney to allow your assets and health
to be managed wisely. Financial freedom, budgeting,
credit/debit cards, and retirement planning will also be discussed.


Hospitality Ministry
Would you like to serve the body of Christ with
our Hospitality Team helping with meals?
They need help. Talk to you family group shepherd today!


“One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.  If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches?  And if you have not been faithful in that which is another's, who will give you that which is your own?  No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”
                                                                                                                               Luke 16:10-13

Family Group Ministry
This is where we get to know each other and meet one another’s needs.
Each family group is a diverse group of Christians within our larger church family
who grow together in our love for Christ and His church.

Family groups are for everyone regardless of age, marital status or spiritual maturity.
Each group is a small flock within our flock, a refuge for comfort,
strength and growth led by a biblically-qualified shepherd into fellowship, prayer, singing,
bible study and the practice of each person’s spiritual gifts.
