Greetings Gardena Saints,

Hello again family and friends and welcome to March. We have reached the last month of the first quarter of 2020– how are your New Year’s resolutions going? We hope that you are prospering even as your soul is.

Our Sunday sermons for March include:

3/1 – “The Love Chapter”

We will be concluding our study on this most wonderful chapter regarding the topic of love. The Apostle Paul penned some remarkable words on what real love is. While the use of agape in the secular Greek of the day was an uncommon thing, it was very common in NT biblical literature and more specifically, in Paul’s writing of this chapter.

3/8 – “The Love Tank”

Believe it or not, we all have one. That special emotional receptacle that is hardwired in each of us by God Almighty. It’s that part of us that needs to be loved and needs to love others. When our tank is full of God’s love, we are in a better place to give love to others because we are drawing from a reservoir of wealth. How full is your love tank?

3/15 – “The Orphan Spirit” (3 Chairs)

Today we will revisit this topic once again with a message that describes three positions a person has regarding an orphan spirit. I will be using three chairs to better illustrate this concept. As believers in Jesus, we need to understand what an orphan spirit is and never allow it to have a place in our life, after all, we are God’s children!

3/22 – “The Love of a Child”

Pastor Jamin Leewill once again bring us another great word from God’s Word. Pastor Jamin will be sharing, among other things, how most children have a great capacity to love. There’s something about their innocence that gives kids the ability to love others unconditionally, especially their parents. A child’s love is the best love.

3/29 – “The Orphan Spirit”

We will be wrapping up this sermon topic with a message that will help you to better identify what an orphan spirit looks like in a practical setting. People who don’t feel parented or even placed in God’s family will struggle with an orphan spirit. This is NOT of God; it’s of the devil and should have no place in the life of a believer.

We will be hosting our Annual Church Business Meeting on Tuesday 3/3 at 7:00pm. As always, we appreciate your attendance at this important meeting where we review the business of our church over the past year. It’s how we give a good report to the constituents of our fellowship and show them how we are using tithe dollars to do the Lord’s work. We will be voting on four council positions, three men and one lady. Your attendance and participation in this important part of the governance of our church is deeply appreciated and necessary. To God be the glory for all the wonderful things that He is doing in our midst. Let’s celebrate that!

In other news, please remember to set your clocks forward (Spring forward!) at bedtime on Saturday 3/7, otherwise some of you might show up to church late; not that it ever happens. We don’t want you to miss out on the early morning festivities occurring here.

As always, it’s a joy and privilege to be able to serve and lead you in the things of the Lord.

Pastors Rob & Debi Lee
