  • Every Sunday afternoon in Placentia, Calif., the Watson family gathers for Family Day.
    Although informal — most every Watson comes either barefoot or wearing flip flops — it has its own set of rules and rituals.
    According to Jennifer (Watson) Fiamengo, the rules mainly pertain to the food served. If they grill hamburgers or hot dogs, her mother MUST make her family-famous macaroni salad. If they have Mexican food, her mother must make seven-layer dip.

  • The Rev. Wotier’s message, “Do You Know My Voice?” was taken from John 10. God cares for us like a shepherd cares for his sheep. Christ is the Door and the Shepherd. Christ is the access point for His flock. Christ’s sheep follow Him. Jesus’ sheep have eternal life. His sheep cannot be snatched from His flock if we truly believe.
    The deacon of the month is Ralph Toole.

  • What a beautiful day it was Sunday. The sun was shining and the birds were singing. It was nice to see so many people in church.

    Bro. James’ sermon was titled “Are You Willing to Suffer Persecution for Jesus?” taken from Matthew 12.
