Here are announcements for this week!

Greetings from Pastor Doug Park

Hello beloved brothers and sisters in Christ!

Happy Birthday to You! Happy Birthday to You! Happy birthday dear Jesus, happy birthday to You! 

Think about some of the birthday parties you have celebrated in the past, perhaps even some this past month. How extravagant were they? How much attention was given to the birthday boy/girl? What kind of presents and gifts were presented to this person on their special day? We love celebrating birthdays, not so much as we get older. And rightly so because we value those we are celebrating, especially in the earlier years. 

In Korean culture and tradition, when a baby turns 100 days old a party is thrown, and when the baby is 1 year old, another larger all out birthday party is thrown. So much celebrating, balloons, streamers, colorful decorations, and of course the baby doesn’t know, but its just because the Parents and friends are so excited about the baby...Click Here
