- Daily Devotional segments 2020 March 28, 2020 Dependence on… For some dependence is a easy thing. In fact they may even really love depending on someone else to meet all of their every need and even whims. For some, depending on others or one individual is very difficult to do. They may feel in control by being very very independent. But, all in all, everyone of us is dependent on someone or something. We depend on the bank to not only hold our money but give it to us when we need it. We depend on grocery stores to be stocked, restaurants to still serve via take out or delivery. We depend on doctors and nurses to care for us, police and fire departments to serve, we may even depend on our churches to somehow continue to minister and serve where needed. The list can go on and on when you really begin to think about dependence. That is alright. It is good to know that there are those you can depend on. There are times when God has them in the right spot for you. Give God praise for those he has placed in your lives that you can depend on and ask God to bless them more and more. Most of all learn more and more to depend on God. In times when no one seems able to or available or even around to depend on – God is always there for you. Depend on him. Let me share to areas of scripture that remind me so much of God there for me – Psalms 18:1-2 1 I love you, Lord; you are my strength. 2 The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. Matthew 11:28-30 28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”
- Hello Culver City Church of God Family and Friends! In consideration of the public health concerns related to COVID-19, we will not be hosting in-person services our sanctuary this weekend. Instead, you can visit us here on Facebook.com with updates, conversations, and prayer. You can also visit our website culvercitychurchofgod.org for the same with also more interaction with one another. Great advice has been given from other churches in our surrounding areas and we here also commit to engaging in the same ways such as: Here’s how we’d like for you to consider engaging during this season: 1. Invite: Let’s all commit to use this time to spread the good news about a God who loves us enough to provide access to Himself through His Son Jesus. 2. Connect: Find ways to safely connect with others during this season. Digital platforms, conference calls and even safe, in person engagement. People need connection and support in times like these. 3. Serve: As a church we are looking for ways to serve those that will be significantly impacted by this moment in our culture. We also encourage you to find ways to serve those around you. 4. Give: Our church is financed by the free will gifts of our members and friends. Please continue to support your church as we actualize the vision that God has given us. We’ve made giving easy by providing several giving options including - you can visit our website and click the “give” button (all our giving options are safe and secured) – you can mail your donation to our address – you can stop by the church office during the week (see our office hours or call in advance) – THANK YOU for your giving because it helps not only during these times but also as the church will continue to minister to all in the times ahead. Above all, we need you to pray. There are so many in our world being impacted by this virus and a number of other societal issues. We firmly believe that the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective and we plead with you to join us as we cover our world in a blanket of prayer. Some may wonder why we decided to suspend service during this crisis. Here’s our short list. We see ourselves loving our neighbors by protecting them. We believe that using wisdom doesn’t mean we are walking in fear. We know that the Church isn’t a building, time of day or style of gathering. We are the church, wherever we are and at all times. Thank you for your patience. We will do our best to keep you informed and connected.
