Metro East Ministry Family,

We are winding down the year 2014 and ready to embark on a new year, new memories, new lessons learned, new victories, new obstacles to overcome………. I have been praying & preparing for 2015 over the past month. God is going to do incredible things with YOU, God is going to do incredible things with US. I am excited for all that God will provide for US with in 2015.


Metro East Clothing Drive & Kiddie Carnival

Over past 2 years we have been going after being “2013- Rooted in Christ”, looking to have a “2014-Breakthrough Together” & now the Theme for 2015 as Metro LA Region is “It’s time to G.R.O.W”. In order for us to grow, we must prioritize GOD, pursue RELATIONSHIPS to strengthen us, get on our knee’s, pray & go after our OUTREACH while each of us goes after our own WIN. What’s your Big WIN going to be in 2015? Maybe your big win is getting out of debt, getting healthier, changing jobs, going after your fitness, investing in your retirement, pursuing your passion/ dreams, seeing someone come to Christ, going back to school, etc…….. whatever it is, pray to God about making it obvious what your WIN is going to be.

We will be going through “Momentum” as a whole church (English & Spanish) and helping empower each & everyone of you in the area of your finances. Before we do anything I am asking each of us to prepare for 2015. Every January we start off by fasting & praying. This will set us up for success in all area’s of our lives. We need to get God involved on an intimate & personal level for all of us. Start preparing for Jan. 1, 2015 now: what will you be fasting from, what will you be studying out, what’s your plan?! During our midweek services & Sunday services we will be focused on Fasting & Prayer. Sunday, Jan. 4th 10am at Whitney High School we will hand out our newsletter & plan for January’s time of fasting & prayer.

See everyone tonight at Red Carpet Night, 730pm, come in Sunday best/ semi-formal, $5/ person at Artesia D.E.S. (Portuguese Hall) 11903 Ashworth Street, Artesia, CA, 90701.
