OMF International Heart for Asia Missions Conference

“God Above All Gods”
Saturday, October 1, 2011 9:30am – 4:30pm
Pleasant Hill, CA
$30.00/adult and $15/child (includes lunch)
Children’s program for ages 5-11.

Register at
(Early-bird discount before August 14, 2011)

For info:

Workshops include topics on:

  • Embracing God’s call and the joys of living as a missional Christian
  • Practical and creative ways of reaching the nations and our communities
  • Reaching urban, rural, and tribal people groups.

Do you ever feel like there are too many advertisements, interests, etc. vying for your attention? In America this is definitely true. We need to be reminded repeatedly “Who our God is” and “whose worship He deserves.” He deserves the worship of all peoples for He is far above their gods. This is the theme of our upcoming local missions conference in the East Bay. Will you join brothers and sister who care about Asia to worship the Most High God and together seek him in drawing people of every language to Him? This is not just for the “spiritual” or for those “called to the mission field.” Everyone should be involved in enjoying God and bringing God’s glory to the ends of the earth. You can do so by Learning, Praying, Welcoming, Sending, Mobilizing or Going [see link]

Come to Worship Hall 1 at 10 AM on Aug. 14th and welcome new believers and new members into our church! We will have a Baptismal service and celebrate the Lord’s Supper. Pastor Tim will preach on “The Missional Mom” (Matthew 15:21-28).

During the 11:15 and 12:15 breaks, we will hold a “Children’s Ministry Fair” where you can learn more about our excellent Sunday children’s programs. You can also sign up to teach and help out with our Children’s program this fall.

During the English ministry sharing time (11:30 AM -12:15 PM), our new members will share their stories. We will also hear from one of our missionaries, Daniel Chen, who will share what he, Tina, and the 3Ms are doing under the ministry of Crossworld. We might also hear from the Summer Mission Team!
