TA Message From our Pastor

Text...

Members and Friends:

I would like to thank each and every one of you for the contributions that you make to the church in order for us to do ministry. Each and every one of us brings gifts and talents that are unique. I would like you to know that these things do not go unnoticed. I would like all of us to remain hopeful about the future of the church.

God has wonderful things in store for us if we would remain faithful to what God has called us to do. I am not sure if you ever think of all of the wonderful things that are happening here. I see the tremendous growth that we have experienced together. I applaud you and give thanks to God for all of the outreach that we do. I do not want us to measure our growth in numbers only.

Our spiritual growth is so quantifiable, but I can tell that it has been tremendous. You may recall that Jesus had twelve disciples and they changed the world. All who met the twelve were better because of the encounter. A special thank you to all who helped to feed the homeless on April 25th. This outreach was led by the Fellowship. The first time we had such an outreach project like this, it was led by the Faith, Formation and Action group. This is still fairly new to us and each time we have done it we learn about the needs of our homeless neighbors.

There is no doubt in my mind that we make a positive difference in the life of every person we feed, for each person that receives socks and other clothing from us. So be encouraged our work is not in vain. God is doing great through us. We may not see the fruits of our ministry immediately, however I am convinced if we continue we will be richly blessed.

Again thanks for doing ministry with me at Community Congregational Church of Pacific Beach. Keep the faith.


Peace and Blessings,

Pastor Elvin

April Discussion Topics 

May 6: Labor and Social Justice:  Do we still value unions. When we speak of job creation are people able to make a living wage. Also as we witness deregulation how is safety in the work place compromised. We will also discuss the wage gap.  How can faith communities advocate for justice in the work place.


May 13: Immigration Reform: We might all agree that there needs to reform within our immigration system, but how do we go about that. What makes a safe and secure border? As, people what is the just thing to do for those who desire to come to this country in order to make a better life for themselves.


May 20: Racism: It has been said that racism is America’s original sin. We constantly hear stories about people of color not being treated fairly. Will America ever overcome the race issue?


May 27: Great Speeches:  Who have been some of the greatest orators?  Are there any speeches that have influenced you? What makes a great speech. Elvin will lead the forum and share some highlights from some of his favorite speeches, and you are encouraged to share some of yours.
