We continue to be encouraged with the community's support and love.
Judy Strahan from Samaritan's Purse and Operation Christmas Child lives in Hemet. Our Christian Women's Connection participated and was able to contribute to the shoe box ministry. In the United States over 8,765,637 boxes were donated. In Southwest Riverside County alone; 26,916. Judy stopped by to give a generous donation from her church as she was recovering from being ill. She just had to be here she said. Her friend, Deborah Rex from San Jacinto also left a gift.
George Lambrecht from Cardinal Church Furniture Company stopped by to let us know he was praying for us. And said he built the pews that were in the sanctuary 45 years ago and worked closely with Pastor Hand. He was deeply saddened.
Tonight we had our monthly Council Meeting. We had a powerful meeting and we are all on track and moving in the same direction. Details have to be done but we as a church are up for the challenge as long as God leads us through the desert!
