The proper balance between God, rest and work can make all 

the difference in the world. How’s your balance?

2024 Southwest California Synod Assembly - Bishop's Report

The 2024 Southwest California Synod Assembly, “The Unity of the Church” was two days of celebrating the ministries of our synod, renewing friendships and learning much about how to be the church in Southern California.

Living the Resurrection - Moving Forward

Marie Kondo says to keep something if it sparks joy. My Living the Resurrection partner, Pastor Mike Girlinghouse, says to keep something 

if it was formative for you. Some things we keep because they make 

us smile, and some because they are part of our history, part of 

who we are. A lot of things are neither.

Wednesday, June 12 at 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.

Joining a Bible study is an important part of developing a deeper understanding of God's wording how the books of the Bible fit together. Now is a great time to join, as we have started our reading and discussion of 1st Corinthians.

In this letter to the church at Corinth, the Apostle Paul spoke of issues related to both life and doctrine: divisions and quarrels; marriage; freedom in Christ; worship; communion; and the resurrection.

For the online study at 7:00 p.m. you will need the passcode below.
