We worship together outdoors AND online.
We are blessed to serve you!
March 7, 2021
Okay, it was really overcast today, yet we still met outdoors and were able to worship God together.
This week we did not have a piano, as our pianist, Marlene, is in isolation due to an upcoming knee replacement surgery (but we prayed for her!)
Let us pray for you, too. Just send an email to us and we will add our online prayer list.
We know some folks are still cautious about meeting in person and prefer to worship the Lord in the safety of their homes. This is why we prepare these online worship pages for you.
We will continue to keep uploading the sermon and providing the YouTube versions of the songs that we sang during worship. 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 or just chat/connect.
UPDATE - Please comment down below and we will respond. Let us know how we can help and if we have blessed you with this on-line worship. Thanks!
Ongoing (as of March 7, 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.
We began our Spring Bible Study - "Lessons from the Life of Paul"
The topic was Conversion Means "About Face" - Acts 9:1-16
Paul, known as Saul at this time was busy terrorizing the early church, until he meets Christ on the road to Damascus.
The Children's Sunday School Lesson from Mrs. Denise...
Mrs. Denise prays and sings with the children (online, of course) then tells the story of Jesus
heals a sick boy.
We have great YouTube versions of Christian Hymns and contemporary songs that we sang today...
Finally, Pastor Harvey took us back to the Gospel of John and we finished chapter 8; Christ is TRUTH.
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

And Now It's Time to Worship Christ
Standing on the Promises

Wonderful Words of Life
Artist: Christian Choristers
After singing a few songs, then as a congregation we read together aloud the following scripture...
Titus 1:1-4, 3:4-8 New American Standard Bible
1 Paul, a bond-servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, for the faith of those chosen of God and the knowledge of the truth which is according to godliness,
2 in the hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised long ages ago,
3 But at the proper time revealed His word in the proclamation with which I was entrusted according to the commandment of God our Savior;
4 To Titus, my true son in a common faith: Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior.
4 But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared,
5 He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we did in righteousness, but in accordance with His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit,
6 whom He richly poured out upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior,
7 so that being justified by His grace we would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
8 This statement is trustworthy; and concerning these things I want you to speak confidently, so that those who have believed God will be careful to engage in good deeds. These things are good and beneficial for people.

Hi Harvey& Denise:
I enjoyed the message today, thank you for your prayers too. It seems so unusual to be at home and NOT at church, I truly miss it and you plus our brothers & sisters in Christ. I watched the evening service at TFB then switched over to HPCC (my Church) and I’m so excited going through the book of John, what a wonderful message we all can receive just reading it but, appreciate how you bring out the different points and views. God Bless you in all you do for our Lord Jesus Christ.
Blessings – Marlene
Blessings to you Marlene!
Thank you for that kind and thoughtful comment.
Yes, we truly did miss you today.
Den will call you tomorrow to talk.
