All worship services are Sunday at 9:30 a.m. 
Aug 6th     "The Life We Share"     Matthew 14:13-14, John 21:15-17
Pastor Tom Rothhaar will lead us in worship, preaching about Jesus filling our needs, as well as the reinstatement of Peter. We will observe "Open Table" Holy Communion.
Aug 13th       "So, You Want To Walk On Water"     Matthew 14:22-33
Despite the many miracles they had witnessed, the disciples still wrestled with their fears and their faith. Peter's short lived experience of walking on water reminds us that we must choose between our fears and our faith.
Aug 20th     "Words Matter, So Do People"       Matthew 15:10-28
Apparently both the Pharisees and the disciples struggled with what Jesus said about what defiles us. It is not cleanliness of hands and food, it is the condition of the heart that truly matters. The Canaanite woman's persistent faith reaches Jesus despite the cultural divide between them.
Aug 27th     "Social Media Or The Holy Spirit?"        Matthew 16:13-20
Gathering His disciples at Caesarea Philippi, Jesus asks two questions of them : 1) "Who do people say that I am" and 2) "Who do you say that I am?" The answer to the second question came after some quiet reflection. In a world filled with concern over their public image and social media, Jesus asks us to bypass what others are saying, and confess our faith in Him. 
DVD recordings of each Sunday service are available the following Tuesday through our church office. If you would like a copy, please call Judy in the church office at (951) 679-1016.
