A Word from Pastor Rob Lee!

Greetings Gardena Saints,

Hello again family and friends of Gardena Valley Assembly and welcome to February, where love is in the air, even when it rains. As always, we want to remind our loving community that Valentine’s Day is always on February 14th, just like last year – please remember those who you love or are charged to love.

As we look forward to 2019, we are anticipating many good things from the Lord. Even as we see Bible prophecy being played out around the world and in our main-stream media, we are confident that God will continue to unfold His grand plan in His time. We continue to pray for our nation and her President, even as we are experiencing the various controversial issues currently happening – please keep praying for our national leadership; it’s our biblical mandate.

Our Sunday month of Sunday sermons will be as follows:

2/3 – “The Beatitudes” – We will begin a new sermon series on the Sermon on the Mount. This will be an exciting and informative series that will deal with a variety of topics that the Master Himself taught His disciples and us through the sacred text of scripture. We will begin with the Beatitudes, a great teaching on what our attitudes should be like as we walk this life.

2/10 – “Conversation Hearts” – Pastor Cherie Moore will be bringing the word to us today with a Valentine’s Day themed message that is centered on the love of God for us. The Lord would have us to love others with His love. P.S, I love you, from Jesus; a simple conversation of hope and life.

2/17 – “Jesus and the Law” – Jesus did not come to destroy the Law, but to fulfill it. His presence in the NT is the hope of our salvation. We need to understand the OT; but we live in the revelation of Christ’s fulfillment of it in the NT. Jesus dealt with the Law head on, and we will too. It is by God’s grace we are saved through faith in Jesus; not by the works of the law.

2/24 – “Retaliation & Love” - A wise man once said, ‘An eye for an eye makes the world blind.’ How true this is in how we are to respond to people when they hurt us. This message is all about love being more powerful than hate, and forgiveness, more effective than holding a grudge. Jesus taught us to love those who offend us and to do good by them. Respond well. We will be hosting our all church business meeting on the first Tuesday in March, which is March 5th at 7:00pm. We will be voting on four council positions and reviewing the 2018 year, both our financial and ministry areas. As always, I encourage you all to please attend and participate in our all church business meeting. You can hear the news on what God has been doing in this church in the past year and see where we are going in this new year. God bless you all in everything that you say and do. May God’s blessing continue to be on you and your family. May God bring the best to you for your faithfulness to the house of the Lord and the things of the Lord that are evident in your life. Honored and blessed to serve you,
