Dear Friends,
 
I’m excited to share that we're adding another service time to our Sunday Gatherings. Starting this Sunday, September 13, we will begin offering a 6pm outdoor service in addition to continuing our morning service at 9am each Sunday. These outdoor church services have been such rich times of worship, prayer and teaching. I hope you'll join us as soon as you're ready.

We are thrilled for the smaller churches in California to now be able to meet indoors. As you probably know, we are still limited to a maximum of 100 people in our Auditorium. That would require us to hold so many service times in order to accommodate everyone so meeting outdoors is much more efficient for us at this point. We have 500 people attending on Sunday mornings and with adding a second service time on Sunday nights we will have plenty of space to accommodate those wanting to meet in person with room to grow. Thankfully we have nice weather in the fall and we will continue to pray that the threshold for indoor gatherings increases to 50% capacity so that we can begin meeting indoors again soon.

You don't want to miss church this coming weekend (either online or in person) since we'll be starting a new series in the book of Ephesians called "Into the Mystery."

Keep shining,
Mark
