“Be strong and courageous…” -Deuteronomy 31:6a
Los Angeles Central
Spanish Church Lives to Serve
The Central Spanish Church in Los Angeles has a passion for sharing the Gospel in their community and neighborhood—and are finding new and inviting ways to reach out. One of these ways included hosting an event in the local community park where they invited the neighborhood to pick up free toys for children, enjoy a meal, and visit with members of the police and fire departments, as well as city assembly representatives and Southern California Conference employees. Volunteers wore shirts with their motto “Live to Serve,” and welcomed over 1,000 people at their event. For this church family, it’s all about developing relationships.

In the KEYT article, Ellis states, “It gives students a chance to express themselves, it’s like painting on a big piece of canvas but instead of using canvas you’re using words.” This school is excited to give their students rewarding opportunities to learn and create.
