"If I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing." (I Cor 13:2, ESV )
Ed Wong's 100th Birthday Celebration!!!
Happy Birthday, Ed!

Mr. Ed Wong has reached a milestone that very few people attain - he celebrated his 100th birthday, and we got to do it with him and his family! What a joy it was to gather after church for a very festive and delicious lunch and special program, organized by Ed's children (Linda Knarreborg, Herman Wong, and Pauline Wong) and many of our own church members. Raley Quon made the birthday hat, about which Ed said with his contagious grin, "I look like a monster!"

Normally the person who has a birthday party receives all the gifts. But Ed isn't just your ordinary 100 year-old man. No, he wanted to use this occasion, not to receive but to give. He presented a generous check for our church to CCC Moderator Alan Lee (pictured left). He also gave generously to House of China, CCBA, & East West Christian Outreach. Thank you, Ed - what a wonderful blessing and encouragement you are!
These sessions after church coincide with Pastor Clay's sermons on The Spirit-filled Life, providing a great opportunity to discuss and clarify the focus of that morning's sermon, grow deeper in the Spirit, make life applications, receive prayer, and get hands-on training for ministry. See you there!
SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE: TEACHING, DISCUSSION, and HANDS-ON TRAINING

Our brand new Sunday Discovery Center Class, The Spirit-Filled Life, taught by Pastor Clay, is off to a great start, with well over 30 people attending. Class starts at 11:30AM, so go grab some coffee in the Fellowship Hall right after church, and make your way up to the Conference Room. You'll be glad you did!
Christ Is Risen!
I Cor. 15:16-21 , ESV
"I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, 17  that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, 18  having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19  and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might 20  that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, 21  far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come."

CHRIST IS RISEN, HE IS RISEN INDEED!!!
