Pastor’s Corner – March 2008

My Beloved,

Well, well, well, here we are in the month of March, the 3rd month of the year 2008. We thank, and praise God for having spared us to cross over to another opportunity to bear “Fruit” in His vineyard.

The past month was rich and rewarding in every way, for God blessed us with administering the Ordinance of Baptism, and another Preacher was added to our Ministerial Team, namely Rev. Charles Williams Jr., who preached his Trial Sermon on the 2nd Sunday in February. We were blessed on the 3rd Sunday afternoon, by the Musical Service featuring the Mass Choir of the Community Baptist Church of Pacoima. Under the direction of Professor Sammy Calloway, it was “Church Music in it’s highest form”. Throughout the month of February we celebrated Negro History Month, and we closed the month on a most high and spiritual note with our ‘Annual African/American Cultural Day Service’, followed by the “Fellowship Feast”. Our own Rev. Daron Willis stirred our hearts with his profound Message. I do want to make special mention of the culinary volunteers, headed by our own, Sis. Birdia Mims, for coordinating the “Fellowship Feast”. Because of the abundance of food items, we were able to send food to one of our area homeless Shelters.

The month of March is now before us. My prayer as I indicated many times is that of enlarging our territory; that each member will consider seriously the matter of moving from mere MEMBERSHIP TO DISCIPLESHIP. We ask that you reach within your immediate family members, neighbors, friends, and persons without a Church home and invite them to Worship with us. As we lift up the Name of Christ, He will draw men, women, boys and girls out of the darkness into the marvelous LIGHT. He and He alone is the LIGHT, LIFE, WAY, AND TRUTH.

Finally, let us continue to be much in prayer for our many, many sick and shut-in, bereaved, and for suffering humanity everywhere. Our prayers go out in a most special way to the victims and families in our community as well as across the nation, who have been affected by violence. For certain, Satan is on the loose but his days are numbered.

I pray for God’s continuing favor and blessings upon both you and yours, and I remain.

Faithfully Yours

Pastor R.M. Leffall, III
