Assembly of God
The people of the church are God’s hands and feet on this Earth. Christians are never instructed in Scripture to sit back, relax, and enjoy their own personal journey toward heaven once becoming disciples of Christ. The Bible instructs Christians to act for the benefit of others, to support, defend, supply and minister to those in the comunity.
The third core value of Leisure World Assembly of God is “Act Compassionately.” Pastor Chuck Franco’s message on Sunday, Aug. 22, at 10:30 a.m. in Clubhouse 3, Room 2, will focus on two commands, one in Matthew 28:19, and the other in 2 Corinthians 1:4. The message compells Christians to act with compassion toward others in two areas, sharing the gospel with those still unreached and comforting those who are in need. Through this series titled “Defining Our Mission,” the identity of Leisure World Assembly of God going forward is being established.
Wednesday morning at 10 a.m., Pastor Chuck continues the study “Journey Into Hope, When Life is Tough,” with Lesson 10, “Surprised by Suffering,” in I Peter 4:12-19. Should Christians expect to suffer? This interactive Bible study is encouraging and practical.
The Sunday night Hymn Sing is cancelled until September until the current COVID-19 resurgence dissipates. As LW continues to negotiate the changing landscape of restrictions and precautions, LW Assembly of God encourages people to be mindful of the needs, known and unknown, of others. It asks that masks be worn and physical distancing be practiced at indoor gatherings. LW Assembly of God are doing everything possible to maintain our ability to meet while protecting each other. It encourages others to consult Philippians 2:1-4, also speaking of compassion, to determine actions in meeting the challenges the world continues to face during this global crisis. Love always wins.
