Assembly of God
Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” Meandering along with no goal in mind can be fun for a while. But in the end, it is a frustrating, pointless, expense of energy. To exist with no purpose is not what God has intended for his church. Leisure World Assembly of God (LWAG) is a church with God’s purpose and intent for the church in mind.
During August, Pastor Chuck Franco will preach a series titled “Defining Our Mission,” taken from LWAG’s newly formulated mission statement. On Sunday, Aug. 15, his sermon title is “Worship God Whole-heartedly.” The church is not a building. The church has always been defined as a community of believers. The goal of LWAG is to not merely exist as a club of people who share common faith, but be a dynamic, active, ministering part of the body of Christ. The Sunday worship services held at 10:30 a.m. in Clubhouse 3, Room 2.
The hymn sing is back, to the delight of those who enjoy singing favorite hymns and childhood church songs, selected and sung by enthusiastic audience members. Pastor Chuck will share a short devotional at the end, and participants are encouraged to fellowship afterward. The hymn sing is always open to all Leisure World residents and friends. Join the fun at 6 on Sunday evenings in the Clubhouse 3 Lobby.
The Bible study is every Wednesday at 10 a.m. in Clubhouse 3, Room 2. The study in 1 Peter, titled “Journey into Hope, When Life Gets Tough,” offers encouragement and insight to the participants.
LWAG invites all LW residents and friends to take advantage of any of the opportunities for ministry and study.
