What a fantastic Easter! Two wonderful services with tremendous worship music, awesome preaching by Dave Eskew and Dan Roditi and heart moving testimonies. But the most powerful aspect of the day was the focus on our resurrected Lord. The impact was obvious as people were in tears witnessing the power of Jesus’ empty tomb as different people shared how God’s power had transformed their lives.
Many people have been baptized already in the month of April. Two physical brothers who first contacted the church through the internet were baptized this past Tuesday. They were raised in the Muslim faith in Iran but with very eager hearts they have learned the truth about the gospel and have made Jesus Christ the Lord of their lives. Please be praying for them as they begin their new lives.
On April 1st 140 disciples filled the fellowship hall to begin their training as Family Group Leaders and Shepherds. What an exciting and electric atmosphere as many answered questions, took notes and caught a vision of the impact they could have for Christ in the future. “Spirit Led Family Group” was the topic of the day. Homework was assigned and the students are looking forward to 5 more sessions. The next session will be this Sunday at 1:30 2:45 P.M.
Starting this Sunday we will begin a four week Evangelistic Sunday Sermon Series called Identity Theft. We have 12,000 invitation cards available at the back of the sanctuary.
The titles of the four Sundays are
- April 15 Created Identity
- April 22 Identity Thief
- April 29 Identify Protection
- May 6 Restored Identity
Please keep praying for this wonderful church that God has blessed us with in Orange County.
