We worship together outdoors AND online.
We are blessed to serve you!
January 3, 2021
Another week outdoors worshiping Christ.
Holy Moly we've been outdoors for about 6 months now!
But, it's all Good! God was with us and will continue to be with us! (Amen!?)
We returned to John 5, right where we left off (way back) in 2020 before Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons.
We prefer worshiping and praying in person, but...we get it, really. Some folks are still cautious about meeting in person. So If you would like prayer for yourself, family, etc., either place it the comments below or if you want to keep it private, send us a Facebook message and ONLY the 2 admins at Highland Park Christian Church will see the request and then share the request as an "unspoken" request for all to pray over.
We continue we continue to keep uploading the sermon and providing the YouTube versions of the songs that we sang during worship today. So even if you cannot join us, we'd still like to pray for you.
Give us a call or email Pastor Harvey at firstname.lastname@example.org to request prayer.
Ongoing (as of January 24, 2021)
COVID-19 Protocols in Our Church
Yes! We are still meeting outside.
(4900 North Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 9004 - Just behind the big white house)
Here are some photos of what our outdoor worship area
looks like before the folks show up.
We hope to see YOU in one of these social distanced chairs with us soon!
This weekend we have prepared a worship page for you that includes...
Thursday Night's Bible Study PowerPoint AND the Zoom meeting recording.
The topic was "God's Provision for His Flock" from John 10:1-18.
The Children's Sunday School Lesson from Mrs. Denise...
Jesus is found in the Temple (actually He wasn't really lost, as you'll see) from Luke 2:41-52
We have great YouTube versions of Christian Hymns and contemporary songs that we sang today...
Finally, Pastor Harvey continued on in John 5:18-32 as we returned to the Gospel of John and our chapter by chapter preaching into the new year.
We hope this continues to bless YOU and draws you closer to God.
Remember, Denise and I are a phone call away if you want to pray together or just chat.
(Also remember that God is NOT far away, He has promised that He would never leave us - can I get an "Amen"!)
And don't forget you can comment below about anything that we can help you with or send us a Facebook message on the Facebook message app.
You can also use the "comments below to start any conversation with us.
Thanks for all of your support!
For Him and His Kingdom,
Pastors Harvey & Denise

After singing a couple of songs, then as a congregation we read together aloud the following scripture...
2 Corinthians 5:16-21 NASB
 Therefore from now on we recognize no one according to the flesh; even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him in this way no longer.
 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
 Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation,
 namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
