Hey TD!

We’ll be heading to the So. Pasadena Care Center on Saturday to visit, fellowship with, and bless the residents there. We’ll see our old friends – people like Gwen, Celestine, Marie, Charlene, Philip, Kim, Pompeia, Raquel, Connie, and more!

Meet at the Hsiehs’ home at 9:30 a.m.  We’ll return at noon. Feel free to stay for lunch and games afterwards.  Please make an effort to come.  Let your small group leader know if you’re coming!

A Word to TD About SOS Saturday – it’s time, TD

“His heart is for the weak, and so should ours be … but it hasn’t been.”

Hi TD,

This Saturday is Serve Our Society (SOS) Saturday and I believe it’s time for you TD’ers to step up and begin consistently and actively serving others in Jesus’ Name, as we have been made to do. Jesus said the greatest commandment is to love God fully and then to love others as we love ourselves.

In fact, His Church/His children are to take His love and love people with it, particularly those who need special measures of it – the elderly, the disabled, the widows, and the orphans.  This is OUR calling, TD, not the government’s.  His heart is for the weak, and so should ours be … but it hasn’t been.

Month after month, TD leaders go and serve these people in Jesus’ Name and in TD’s name and get blessed, touched, and empowered by the Lord.  However, precious few TD’ers ever make it out in recent times, unlike in past TD generations.  It’s time to grow up, shape up, and step up, TD.  It’s time.

“It’s time to grow up, shape up, and step up, TD.  It’s time.”

Please carve out time in your schedules for His work and join us on Saturday, 1/25, for one or both SOS opportunities:

So. Pasadena Care Center

10 a.m. – Noon (meet at the Hsiehs’ at 9:30 a.m.)

Hillsides Children’s Services

1 p.m. – 3 p.m. (meet at the Hsiehs’ at 12:30 p.m.)

If you come to both, we will have a quick lunch together at the Hsiehs’ in between the two.

Looking forward to seeing some of you begin the journey of obedience … and blessing.

– Arthur

TD Doubleheader This Weekend – Park on Fri./ SOS Sat.!

Hey TD!

We don’t have just one, but TWO great opportunities for you ENGAGE and ENJOY God and one another this weekend!

On Friday, we’ll be having a joint event at the park with BASIC, where you can visit with your old BASIC counselors, befriend the new kids there, and just have a fun time playing games and chillin’.

The event is from 7 – 9:30 p.m. at Almansor Park in Alhambra.  Get dropped off and picked up there.

On Saturday, we have SOS Saturday!  This is an opportunity for you to join in a monthly TD tradition that has been going on for 30 years, where we visit the So. Pasadena Care Center (formerly known as the So. Pas Convalescent Hospital).  Serving others is not only an essential aspect of TD’s life and ministry, it needs to be an essential aspect of yours; otherwise, you are not living your life the way God intends you to live it.

What you’ll find in serving and caring for others to the honor of God, with no strings attached, is a deep joy and satisfaction that God gives to those who obey Him and who take care of others, especially the weak and ignored.

Take advantage of this great opportunity!  Meet at the front of the Hsiehs’ at 9:45 a.m. on Saturday morning.  You’ll return at around noon.

Hey TD!

Make sure to come to our first SOS Saturday of the new TD year!  This is an opportunity to love God and to love your neighbors, especially those close to God’s heart – the weak.  In doing so, you will be fulfilling one of the callings God has on your life.  Not many of you have made the effort to take advantage of the opportunity to bless God’s heart in this way, but you can this Saturday by befriending and hanging out with some wonderful elderly friends.  It’ll be a feel-good time of encouragement, doing what’s right, perspective, and fun.  The residents at the Care Center are so special and rich in heart, you’re sure to be blessed.

Meet at the Hsiehs’ at 9:30 a.m.  Return by noon with lunch to follow.  Let your TD leader know if you can come!
