11/6/22 Sunday’s Sermon By Nick Perez

Blessed Assurance; Love is a Verb

1 John 3:16, ESV – By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.

Treat-tacular was a big success!

1,048 of our neighbors came through the line.
We gave away:

  • about 300 English Bibles
  • about 100 Spanish Bibles
  • 200 information packets (1 per family)
  • 250 Grief information packets
  • 200+ Suicide Prevention flyers
  • 1,250 lbs of candy
  • Over 50 people asked for prayer.

And we couldn’t have done it without you! Many thanks to all that pitched in to help
with this event.
