Yes! We Are Open for Business!
We would love to see your family again. Come to our worship services and participate live. Our services are at 8:00 AM in our Fellowship Hall and at 10:30 AM in our sanctuary. Masks are optional: if you feel the need to wear one, we welcome you, and if not, we welcome you, anyway. Sit with your family and friends. We REALLY REALLY want to see in person at our services. Also, you can follow us remotely in the comfort of your own home at this link.

You Can Help the Empty Closet
The West Coast Foster Care Services Empty Closet celebrated its Grand Opening on the Saturday before Palm Sunday. Now the facility needs operational help and donations, and Janet Rinaldi is looking for volunteers. The Closet plans to be open every Thursday from 10 AM until 2 PM, and one Saturday a month.

  • Help is needed to come on Thursdays to help process and sort donations and to restock shelves at the closet.
  • Laundry help is needed to take donated clothing home and wash, dry, and fold them so that they can used by the closet.
  • Custodial help is needed to come in once a week while the closet is closed and clean up the closet and take out the trash.
  • The closet needs men’s/boy’s body wash and deodorant, new baby girls 3T clothing, new children’s shoes, and formula.

Contact the church office at 677-5995 if you can help.

Bible Passage of the Week
Jesus is the Son of God
Then came the Festival of Dedication at Jerusalem. It was winter, and Jesus was in the temple courts walking in Solomon’s Colonnade. The Jews who were there gathered around him, saying, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.”

Jesus answered, “I did tell you, but you do not believe. The works I do in my Father’s name testify about me, but you do not believe because you are not my sheep. My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”

John 10:22-30 (NIV)
