IN THIS UPDATE:
REMINDER: ONE COMBINED WORSHIP SERVICE IS THIS SUNDAY, DECEMBER 30, AT 10 AM. (Our regular Sunday morning service schedule of 9:15 and 10:45 AM will resume the following Sunday, on January 6th.) Several people will be getting baptized on Sunday. It will be a great time of being together in worship as we say goodbye to 2018 and get ready to start a new year of loving and serving Jesus as well as introducing others to him!
WORSHIP CENTER RE-MODEL PROJECT: The plan is to use volunteers to do the work (carpet removal, loading dumpsters, recovering sounds panels, painting, carpentry, etc.) The estimated cost of materials and supplies for the project is $10,000. We are looking to raise those funds with over-and-above gifts/donations.
You can make this tax-deductible year-end gift either through the offering during the worship service this Sunday and/or at http://goldcoastchurch.org/give/ before midnight on December 31, or mail it to Gold Coast Christian Church (3500 Camino Ave., Oxnard, CA, 93030), postmarked by December 31.
TAKING DOWN DECORATIONS, FRIDAY, JANUARY 4: We need about 6-8 individuals to help take down the Christmas decorations. We’ll be starting at 9 am and should be finished by about 10:30 am or so. If you can assist, please write “Take Down” on your Connection Card this Sunday or go online. Want a free artificial Christmas tree? There will be two Christmas trees and some lights that will be available to pick up at noon that day. Questions, contact Darrell Foote at 805.660.3061 or email@example.com.
LIFE GROUPS START THE WEEK OF JANUARY 6th: The primary purpose of LIFE Groups is joining with other believers, doing life together in community as we spur one another on to grow in following Jesus and helping others begin a relationship with Jesus. If you are new to a LIFE Group or wish to change to a different LIFE Group, sign up through the church website or visit the Welcome Desk this Sunday.
DISCOVERING A CHURCH FAMILY, SUNDAY, JANUARY 20, 12:30 PM TO 2:30 PM, YOUTH ROOM: Discovering a Church Family (101 Class) provides information on what we believe, church membership, and more!
