Be on the Lookout for our New Thursday Newsletter

Our Newsletter Is How We Do “Announcements”

One of the joys of growing as a church is there is much to share with you! We want to be able to provide you with all the information you need, without overwhelming you with too many headlines in our Tuesday newsletter. In light of this, our newsletter will now be sent out in two different emails - one on Tuesday afternoon and one on Thursday afternoon - every week. Lord willing, this smaller amount of information per newsletter post will help you to digest what’s going on in the life of the church.

We Want To Help You Stay On Track

There is nothing to do on your part- just read these emails and praise God for all he is doing in our church & city!

Don't Ignore That Haunting Sense of Need

Jonah Didn’t Realize His Need For Grace Until He Hit Rock Bottom - Literally

In our second message in the book of Jonah, we finally met the great fish. But as has already been established, the story isn’t about the fish. At the end of the matter, it’s not even about Jonah. It’s about a great God and His great grace. Jonah 2 should haunt us with a sense of need for the same grace that Jonah was shown. The question that’s posed to you and me: will you listen to it?

A Dedicated Place For Nursing Mothers
IMG_1033.jpg

Through conversations with our wonderful contacts at the Santa Ana Unified School District, Mollie and Mary (take a moment to praise God for the gift that these two ladies have been to us), we’ve arranged to have a second classroom reserved every Sunday for nursing mothers to both experience privacy and to, at the same time, listen to the sermon. We’ll pipe the sermon into the nursing mother’s room every Sunday that it’s needed.

This room is located in the K2 room on the other side of the MPR from the children’s ministry classroom. It will be identified by a sign on the door.

It's Not About A Big Fish

The Final Book In Our Minor Prophets Series

One particular and minor element of the book of Jonah has been what readers and students have myopically focused on for centuries in the church - the big fish. Everybody knows that Jonah was swallowed by a big fish. But once we realize that the book of Jonah is about so much more than a giant aquatic animal, we avail ourselves to riches from God’s Word that stand to transform how we view nonChristians, how we understand God’s mercy and more. This past Sunday, in the first message from chapter 1, we learned that no matter how undesirable obeying God’s Word is to you, you cannot flee from God’s presence. You can simply live joyfully or miserably in God’s presence.

Listen to the message here.
