WHAT'S HAPPENING IN HOMELAND BLOG
Community 1st gets a new door on our Worship Center. Thank you so much to Dennis and Cary for all their hard work in helping this restoration.
By the way, they didn't want their picture taken until they were threatened with getting an ugly picture taken if they didn't smile! Thanks Guys!!
A huge thank you to Frank (aka "The Food Guy"). Frank faithfully, every week, brings us food, clothes, shampoos, cleaning products, toys and much more for our Food Pantry and Outreach Center. He picks up these items from Vons & Target Stores who donate them.
We are also able to help other local ministries by sharing what Frank provides for us.
God continues to provides faster than we can give!
Thank you, Frank!
As we continue to trust God to help our Community, we received 4000 children's Croc shoes!
California Family Life Center of Hemet, Program Coordinator, Greg Snow, made this incredible donation of shoes and socks. Thank you, Greg, for sharing this blessing! www.cfickids.org
With such blessing, we were able to extend it to other ministries. Over one thousand pairs of shoes went to the Perris Outreach Center with Pastor Nolan and Becky Turnage from the Grove Community Church. Pastor Nolan and Becky provide new clothing- all new and donated by a variety of merchants, for underprivileged moms and their children.
God continues to bless Community First with donations to share with our Community. Recently we opened a clothing ministry called Hope Unlimited Outreach Center. We are providing clothes to men, women and children in need. The Outreach Center is open during our food distribution on Saturdays from 9am-11:00am. There are no financial requirements. If you need clothes, shoes, or jackets, see our Center Manager, Margaret Blain.
Beginning Sunday, September 1 we will be moving to one service at 9:00am. We will also be starting a series of "100 Days of Break Through." We have had many set backs during our rebuilding process, so for the next 100 days we will memorize and meditate on the word of God and include prayer and fasting.
We are looking forward to moving forward and trusting God for new BREAKTHROUGH!

First mile stone! Riverside County Building for application to file for building permit! One step at a time.
Our Ground Breaking Celebration was an amazing event. Even though it was New Year's Eve we had almost 100 people in attendance for support. Our County Supervisor Chuck Washington also attended with his aid Opal Helwig. We are so thankful for Dennis & Lulu Massawi and our children's choir for the music and Clark Edmond for exciting drumming fun. Most of all, the Glory goes to God!
