Today was the first day of our tent service after the fire. The tent was assembled and ready including a heater and generator for electricity. Sound equipment, mics, and lighting were in place. It was time to Glorify our God. So many people from other churches, congregations and organizations were there. ABC and CBS/ KCAL9's Greg Mills were present. They had heard about our Restoration Services after the fire 8 days ago. They both did an outstanding job with their reporting and were very encouraging.
Charles Stedman is the President of the local LDS Church organization in Hemet/San Jacinto. There are 12 congregations who have offered their time, talent and treasures to help us in Homeland.
Pastor Nolan Turnage, who is the Outreach Pastor from "The Grove" Church in Riverside, spoke and said that their congregation is ready to walk with us until we walk into our new building. He also presented us a generous donation.
Pastor Ernie Castaneda presented a message as well. He is offering to provide and BBQ Hot Dogs for our next Rummage Sale on Saturday May14.
Pastor Johnny Hodges from New Life Fellowship Assemblies Church across the street presented prayers and encouragement. Their congregation also presented us with a generous donation. Thank you New Life. We have always loved partnering with you.
We also received an offering from the Islamic Society of Hemet with their encouraging words and prayers. They too are a member of the Interfaith Council of Hemet/San Jacinto. Thank you!
Pastor David Winn, the Executive Director of the Church of God for California and Nevada, presented an inspiring message quoting Joshua 1-8. See video sermon post. Pastor David spent his Mother's Day with us and just after having his first grand child, we felt honored that he would generously give his time to be here to support and encourage this congregation.
Pastor Rocky Moore prayed for the church and led us in communion. And his positive attitude and energy is contagious. Pastor Rocky has a passionate presentation of the word of God with pin point accuracy. His prophetic anointing touches peoples hearts, changes lives and honors God.
I will be uploading a link for the entire service as soon as editing is completed. It was a good day. A day of restoration. A day of new beginning.
Thank you everyone who attended, has been praying and blessing this body of Christ.
