This week we will be celebrating what God has done and is doing through us with testimonies. We will be hearing from members who have gone on foreign trips to Malaysia and the Philippines, and also from members who are serving locally at a transitional housing center in Pasadena, and on our Altar Guild. I hope that these stories will refresh and encourage you as you hear the work that God is doing. I pray that it will inspire us all to seek out God's mission and will for our lives as a church and as individuals.

I look forward to joining with you in celebration of our faithful God this Sunday. Don't forget: stick around for our annual taco lunch after the service!
