Hey TD, it’s time for another edition of Serve Our Society Saturday!  This Saturday, we will once again visit our friends at the So. Pasadena Care Center.  Our visits mean so much to them that we cannot NOT go!  They really look forward to our visits.

Meet at the Hsiehs’ at 9:30 a.m.  and get picked up by noon. There will be no lunch this week due to a meeting.

Make the time to do what’s good and right, TD, and you know God will bless you as you do!

TD Sat. – Come to SOS SUPER Saturday!

Hey TD!

We will not only have SOS Saturday this weekend, but we’re having an SOS SUPER Saturday!  What’s a SUPER Saturday?  It’s a double-header, two opportunities to keep cultivating the all-important Downward component of our Christian lives!

Care Center Ministry – 10 a.m. – noon.  Meet at my home at 9:30 a.m.

Come minister to the elderly at the So. Pasadena Care Center.  They are gaining lots of momentum ever since they got re-certified and converted back to making the elderly their primary focus of care.  TD has been ministering here since 1989.  Our last two visits were very special.

These are folks who have been largely forgotten and who need to be valued and reminded that they are still loved by God and still have much worth.

“You shall rise up before the grayheaded and honor the aged, and you shall revere your God; I am the LORD.” Leviticus 19:32

Orphanage Ministry – 1 p.m. – 2:45 p.m.  Meet at my home at 12:30 p.m.

On the other spectrum are children who also have no one to really call their own.  They don’t have parents!  What would you do if you grew up without parents?

These are darling kids who face a very uncertain future and need to know they are valued.  God has a heart for them, part of which they can experience by being with us.

“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” James 1:27

 

True Downward service is so crucial and essential to a true Christian life, so please take advantage of the opportunities to fulfill His calling for us through our SOS Saturdays.
Let your small group leaders know if you can make either ministry or both this Saturday! – Arthur

 

 

TD Sat. – A Chance to Taste “Wonderful!”

“How was it?” I asked

“It was WONDERFUL!” Sandra replied.

Sandra and Angela had just returned home from visiting the Care Center yesterday energized and enthused. They wanted to go back today.

If you need a little “Wonderful!” in your life right about now, I invite you to come over to my home at 9:30 a.m. as we go visit the elderly at the Care Center.  It will be a blessed time for them and for us.  Ask you small group leader if you have any questions.

See you tomorrow! – Arthur

Join SOS Saturday!/No TD Fri.

Hey TD!

For our first Serve Our Society (SOS) Saturday of the year, we will be visiting the newly re-opened South Pasadena Care Center (904 Mission St., 91030) to minister to the elderly residents there. from 10 a.m. – 11:45 a.m. Meet at the Care Center at 10 a.m. and expect to return by 12:15 p.m., or around 1:30 p.m. if you plan to have lunch with the group.  This does count towards your high school service hours requirement!

We will be adding more SOS opportunities in the months to come, so stay tuned!

Convalescent Home Sat./No TD Fri.

Hey TD,

Just a reminder that we will have our monthly convalescent home visitation on Saturday, from 10 a.m. – noon.  This is an essential ministry for TD, one that we’ve been doing since the 1980’s.

Come be a part of the legacy of ministering to those who have walked before us, the elderly.  They need us and we need them!

Meet at my home at 9:30 a.m. – Arthur

No TD Fri./Service Opportunities Sat.

Hey TD!

Just a reminder that we do not have TD this Friday.  Our next TD meeting will be next Friday, May 6.

However, there are two great service opportunities on Saturday:

  • Convalescent Home – from 10 a.m. – noon.  Meet at my home at 9:30 a.m.
  • Coaching kids with autism – from 4 p.m. – 5 p.m. (must register with me first). Meet at my home at 3:30 p.m.

Not only are these great ways for us Christians to reach into and serve our community, you can also satisfy your service hours requirement.

Hope to see you on Saturday! – Arthur

TD – Good Fri./Convalescent Home Sat.

Hello TD, and a blessed Good Friday to you,

Today is quite a day in the scope of history – not only human history, but heaven’s history as well, where the unthinkable happened – the Heavenly Father and the Blessed Son were in different corners of the ring, as it were … at least in some material way, though not ultimately, of course.  I hope today will be a meaningful day for you as you contemplate and engage with our God of glory.
1.  We will not be having TD tonight.  Instead, TD will join the rest of the church for our Good Friday service in the main sanctuary.

 

2.  On Saturday, we will be serving our Lord with our monthly Convalescent Home visitation.  Meet Rebecca at my home at 9:30 a.m.
