Pastors Harvey & Denise

Pastors Harvey & Denise


Sorry about the live feed challenges last week.

This week we have Children's Sunday School by Mrs. Denise and the message for Sunday already recorded and ready to view.

We are going to have Adult Sunday School, live with Zoom meetings, Pastor Harvey will send the links out to all to participate.  

Check back on this page on Sunday morning for the videos for children's Sunday School and the main church message. 

Children's Sunday School - by Mrs. Denise

Hear the Word of God and Obey It!

Please scroll down and view the following videos, feel free to gather your family around and sing along.  The first video isn't a song, but it puts context to the first song.

Even though we are not together physically, we CAN (and should), worship God as best we can.     

Denise and I are praying for you during this time.  

Please feel free to use the "comments" section below.  We'd love to hear from you!  

This is the true story of the author of "It Is Well"

And NOW the song: "It is Well"  There are MANY versions online, but check out this compilation of MANY people as one!  Praise God!

And during this crazy time in the world and the USA, let us remember to NOT put our hope in any government, preacher,  or anything other than the person of Jesus Christ!

I always feel weird about finances and asking for money for our church.  
But the reality is, that our church needs money to continue to serve the community.  In these times, it is easier than ever to give.

You can make an online donation by clicking the big blue button below.

The button will open up another page and take you to our SECURE Paypal site. 

YOU DO NOT NEED A Paypal account to donate.  You may give as a guest.  

You may make a  "one" time donation, gift, or if you would like to set up recurring donations according to your budget and God's leading, you have the opportunity to do that also.  

You do NOT need a credit card, a debit card is fine.   Thank you for your support!

Casting Crowns "Voice of Truth" has GREAT lyrics about what is TRUE and how the Holy Spirit is working within us!

Sunday Message
"How to Discern Truth from Error"

2019-09-20-FREE Family Movie

Free Movie Event!

Friday, September 20, 2019 - 7 p.m.

This fun, family movie was released late, last year.

It features great animation, music, singing and a heartwarming story of love and friendship.  

Come and enjoy with your family on our "Big Screen".

We provide free snacks at the movie. 

(Due to our licensing agreement, we MAY show the movie for free to the public, but cannot advertise the name of the movie, however click the button above and we will text you a reminder.)


Free Movie Event!

Friday, April 26, 2019 - 7 p.m.

Come experience the REST of the story of "The Torrance Tornado", Louis Zamperini.  Zamperini's harrowing and true story of being lost at sea, "rescued" by the Japanese during World War II, and struggles and survival in a Japanese POW camp was vividly portrayed in "Unbroken", a major theatrical release a few years ago.

This is the second half of the Zamperini story.  In this movie, we will join Zamperini as he battles with the demons of his past from the POW camp, and learn how he was able to overcome his challenges as he returned to America and tried to resume his athletic career and live a normal life.

Due to some of the violent nature of this movie it is rated PG-13, so parents be cautioned.  

We provide free snacks at the movie.  Come join us.  
See the trailer below.

2019-01-18-Movie-Beautifully Broken

Free Movie Event!

Friday, January 18, 2019 - 7 p.m.

WARNING - We need to let you all know, that there are some scary scenes in this movie as it takes place during a civil war.  There is also an attack on a minor child (that takes place off screen).  But, both the war scenes and the attack are essential to telling the true story.  My wife, Denise, and I attended the pre-screening of this movie back in June of 2018.  

It is VERY well written and the producers (one of who is the main character in the movie) did a great job of packing several seemingly unrelated events into a great movie that tells the TRUE story of 3 families, their trials and God's providential throughout their ordeal.  I can't really tell you too much more without giving away essential plot elements.

We provide free snacks at the movie.  Come join us.  
See the trailer below.

Annual Car and Car Seat Inspection Event – October 13

Annual Car and Car Seat Inspection Event - October 13
9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Open Letter from Chris Auto...

Dearest Chris Auto Customer,

I wouldn't normally do this, but I NEED your help. And, no, my email account was not hacked. LOL.

This Saturday, October 13th, 2018 -  from 9am-1pm we will be closing shop for the day to host our annual community service event. It will take place at the 

Los Angeles Police Museum 
6045 York Blvd
 Los Angeles, 90042.

I need your help in spreading the word to whomever you may know. ALL services performed there are FREE with NO OBLIGATION. The flyer is enclosed.

4 years ago we wanted to serve our community somehow. Yes, there were ideas flying around like food drives and what not, but that's not what we specialized in. The idea came while driving down York Blvd. as we started noticing cars that weren't properly maintained. People let their cars go, out of fear of going to a mechanic to get up-sold or ripped off. So, we came up with the idea to host an annual event where people could come without fear, to have their cars visually inspected, and ask our mechanics questions. We'd then send them home with a written report that listed any potential problems or conditions, if any,  we found during the checkups. Whether they fixed it themselves, took it to their mechanics, or came to us, it gave them information they needed to make an easy cheap fix before it could potentially turn into a big expensive repair.

We found, in that same year, a car seat organization that was nationally known, who was vigorous in their car seat inspections. They had never teamed up with an auto shop before to do this type of event, but were excited to do so. They are passionate about what they do. This is the organization that trains the CHP to do car seat inspections/installations! They've been doing checkups with us as well for the past 4 years, and has made this event that much more special. Each year, we are so honored to have them with us.

All these services are safety driven and are FREE at our event THIS SATURDAY. We'd like to help all we can get, to make it worth closing down shop for the day. Hankook Tires has graciously donated a voucher for a free set of tires to be given to any random participant of the event, and New York Life will be there making photo/fingerprinting ID cards for children FREE of charge! This is good to have in the awful event that our children go missing. While outer appearances change as they get older, fingerprints NEVER do! This ID card is so important to have.

Will you please help us spread the word? You can forward this email to whomever or verbally let people know. You can use the file to upload the image to your instagram, Twitter, facebook, or whatever social media account too if you wish. We'd greatly appreciate your help in this effort.

Thank you! Here's to another great event! We'd also like to thank you for being the best part of Chris' Auto Service! We truly do appreciate you.
