A Fall Celebration...
Fall is a time when much attention is given to sports teams, pumpkins and creatures of the night. For sports fans, the season always begins with high expectations. Perhaps THIS will finally be "our" year. It goes without saying that most of these expectations give way to disappointment and the hope that perhaps next year will finally be "our" year.
For others, the season is time for Jack-o'-lanterns and goblins. There seems to be a lot of attention given to death and darkness But not for us. As the Body of Christ, Fall is time to celebrate and give thanks. We celebrate light, THE LIGHT, and living hope that we share as children of the living God, redeemed by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and indwelled by HIS SPIRIT alive in us!
We celebrate life as we gather each Sunday for worship and Bible Study. We live the new life we share in Christ as we minister in the community. Over the next few weeks we will share several special times of ministry together.
The first was our annual HALLELUJAH BLAST. On October 31 we shared a safe and fun time for kids of all ages with games, hot dogs, fun and, of course, plenty of candy. During the event, we were able to share the Gospel with everyone, which was a wonderful blessing!
The second event coming up is the COMMUNITY GIVE-A-WAY. In November, we gather gently used clothing and household items for a garage sale type event with one important difference - EVERYTHING IS FREE. This ministry to the greater Wahiawa Community will take place on Saturday, November 23 from 9-10AM.
the third event is our THANKSGIVING DAY SERVICE. On Thursday, November 28th we will open the church for a time to thank God with scripture, worship and testimonies of thanksgiving. The service will take place at 10:00AM.
