Greetings Gardena Saints,

Hello again family and friends of Gardena Valley Assembly and welcome to February, where love is in the air, even when it rains. We want to remind our loving community that Valentine’s Day is always on February 14th, just like it was last year! Please remember those you love or are charged to love; after all, we don’t want them to experience a love deficit.

As we look forward to 2020, we are anticipating many good things from the Lord as we see Bible prophecy being played out in the middle east, in our political arena, and around the world. We are confident that God will continue to unfold His grand plan in His time. Continue to pray for our nation and president as we experience various controversial issues. We must keep praying for our national leadership; it’s our biblical mandate!

 

 

Our Sunday month of Sunday sermons will be as follows:

2/2 – ‘Better, Not Bitter’

Pastor Kevin Moore will bring the Word to us today with a message on having a right attitude in a hostile situation. Sometimes offense can get the best of us and if we are not careful, it can birth a root of bitterness. Today we will have a great teaching on what our attitudes should be like as we walk this life; even when it gets a bit tough.

 

2/9 – ‘The Four Loves (Part 2)’

Today we will be picking up where we last left off and continue with the other two loves, eros and storge. I suppose this is appropriate since we are a few days from Valentine’s Day. Each of us as believers in Jesus are charged in God’s Word to be good stewards of our love, in and how we show it. May your love be as God’s love.

 

2/16 – ‘Love is…’

We will continue in our Love Deficit sermon series with a message that will help us to better understand what love is and how our love is to be displayed. We know that love is as love does and we must all love more like Jesus loves. If asked to finish the sentence, ‘Love is…’ we would get different responses because our love deeds and needs vary.

 

2/23 – ‘Love Language’

This message is all about the different ways that we love each other and want to be loved by others. The premise of this message comes from Dr. Gary Smalley’s book with the same name. Once we can crack the love language code, we will be in a better place to love those closest to us in ways they will understand.

 

We will be hosting our All Church Business Meeting on the first Tuesday in March (March 3rd at 7:00pm). We will be voting on four council positions and reviewing the 2019 year, both financially and ministerially. As always, I encourage you to please attend and participate in our All Church Business Meeting. You can hear the news on what God has been doing in this church in the past year and see where we are going in the coming year.

God bless you all in everything that you say and do. May God’s blessing continue to be on you and your family. May God bring the best to you for your faithfulness to the house of the Lord and the things of the Lord that are evident in your life.

 

Honored and blessed to serve you,

Pastors Rob & Debi Lee
