Highlights

Operation Christmas Child at West Covina Christian Church

For the past 25 years, Samaritan’s Purse been collecting shoeboxes filled with gifts and delivering them to children in need around the world. Each box is an opportunity for a boy or girl to experience the love of God in a tangible way and hear the Gospel.

Next Sunday, stop by the OCC table in the entryway to pick up a plastic or pre-printed cardboard shoebox. We’ll also provide you with a list of ideas for your boxes. Please return all completed shoeboxes by Sunday, November 12.

Women’s Ministry: Ladies Eat! — Saturday, October 13

Once a month, the women of West Covina Christian Church gather for a time of fellowship and prayer. This Saturday, October 13, join the group at Marie Callender’s in West Covina (3117 E Garvey Ave N) at 9:30am.

Women’s Ministry: Explore L.A. via Metro — Saturday, October 20

On Saturday, October 20, the women of the church will board Metro to the Last Bookstore, California’s largest used and new book and record store, and Grand Central Market. The group will meet at the church at 9am and return at 5pm. For more information, see Diana Cho.

Church Workday — Saturday, November 3

Over the next few weeks, we'll be washing sidewalks, patios, and walls and patching stucco on the first-floor exterior walls. We'll need your help on Saturday, November 3 to finish up as we cover those walls, railings, and trim with a new coat of paint. We'll still have projects such as cleaning of the sanctuary's pews and landscaping, so there's a job for everyone. Join us!

October is Pastor Appreciation Month

For the entire month, a jar will be available in the foyer if you’d like to leave a note of encouragement or thanks, or a monetary gift, for our pastors. A special presentation will be made in November.

Daily Advent Readings

We’re working on this year’s book of daily readings for the Advent season. If you’d like to contribute to the book, please contact Emi Iwanaga or make a note on Sunday’s Connection Card for additional information.
