What's Happening Now . . .

On March 19th, California State and County officials announced the Stay at Home/Safer at Home Order that would be in effect March 20-April 19. This plan prohibits all gathering of groups larger than 10 persons and restricts normal public activities to only those that are essential (medical, groceries, take-out, etc.).


This Order also affects the church and how we will be providing ministry for the next few weeks. Please read the church’s 3-P plan below with included updates.



This is something we can all do as we pray for family, friends, church, community, world, and those in high risk categories (seniors, immune deficiencies, young children).



The Office and Children’s Center will be closed until April 19th. Staff will check mail and telephone messages. Feel free to call (626) 447-2181 or e-mail (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).  All church events and gatherings have been cancelled for this time as well.



Sunday worship service will be available On-Line via LIVE STREAM (10 a.m.) on the church website ( or on the Church's Facebook Group Page (Live and Recorded).  Do not come to church on these Sundays. This includes Palm Sunday (April 5) and Easter Sunday (April 12) - more information about these Sundays will be provided soon.   


Offerings and Tithes can be mailed to the church or dropped in the Office mailbox and can now be submitted by the on-line giving option available on the church web-site.



Pastoral Care- Pastor Eva is available for telephone and virtual visits. Her contact info is (626) 447-2181 office and Pastor Eva will also share a weekly reflection video that will be posted on Thursdays to the church website and Facebook GP.


A Lay Care Team has been set up to check in on our Elderly and Home Bound members. Please contact the church if you would like a call from a Lay Care Team member.


While March 19th was the date that the Stay at Home Order was announced, this date was also the first day of Spring! Spring is a season of hope and rebirth and I am reminded of the scripture passage from Isaiah 40:31, “But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”


I pray that you may have hope in the Lord and will be strengthened by our connection of prayer, worship, and care during these times.


Together in Christ’s Service,


Pastor Eva
