2/15/24 Newsletter

Updated: Mar 27


February is the month when we celebrate Valentine’s Day, Black History, Super Bowl, Ground Hog’s Day, American Heart Month, and Presidents Day. With so many special days, and two less than an average month, it’s no wonder the month of February comes and goes so fast! Remember, each day of February has the same hours of the day as any other.The psalmist says in Psalm 27:14. "Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD." And in Psalm 25:5, it reads, “Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.”Don’t let the short days of the month distract you. Keep waiting on the Lord.


Pastor’s Corner:

Prophecy is a topic that intrigues many. To others it brings fear. And to many others it brings hope. In the following weeks, we will be presenting a study through the book of Revelation. We will proceed methodically and shine some light on some difficult passages and reveal who is behind the many mysteries of this book. So, grab you Bible and start reading the book of Revelation. You will be glad you did.


Digital Evangelism is Coming to Santa Maria.

We are looking for digital evangelist. What is that? you may ask. This type of ministry is one that reaches thousands of people, right from your own living room or from your smartphone or your computer.

As the North America Division-Evangelism department, connect with individuals that are from Santa Maria area, through social media, they will establish a relationship with them. After a relationship has been established, they will send those interests to the digital evangelists in our church to continue praying with them. Sounds easy, right? Well, it is. Better worded, a digital evangelist is one who is willing to continue praying for these interests over the phone, or via emails, and event text messages.

The plan is to create a hybrid evangelism model that blends in-person and digital outreach. This comprehensive strategy will enable more effective engagement with the community, utilizing tools such as prayer ads, online pastoral care, community involvement, Bible study, and public evangelism meetings. This collaborative proposal signifies a step towards an adaptive and inclusive approach, bridging traditional methods with digital avenues to better reach our community.

If you have been praying for ways that God can use you to serve in your local church, please consider joining us as we embark on this new journey to meet people in need of prayer. More information will follow.

Those who follow Christ the most closely have not been gloomy. In Christ is light and peace and joy forevermore. We need more Christ and less worldliness, more Christ and less selfishness.
