December Ministry Update

1:49 am Ministry Journal


I hope your Christmas season is full of meaning with faith-filled celebration of Jesus.  He deserves our worship!


Bruce Blake sent out a letter a few weeks back to invite you to help Heartfelt Music Ministry with a tax deductable year-end gift.  We appreciate the response so far.  Your donation anytime this month would greatly help.  Visit our website for more details


The Creekside Christmas presentation The Journey to Bethlehem – a Journey of Faith was fantastic!  It was a full house and the cast and crew did a great job, including a touching testimony and culminating message by our Lead Pastor.

Check out below the gifts available and the events coming up in January…

Guitar Looping, January 7 (Thursday), 7:00pm-8:00pm, Guitar Showcase (Showcase Music Institute), 3090 S. Bascom Ave., San Jose, CA 95124, (408) 377-5864 [ask for Norri], $20.00 for non-SMI students. Guitar looping is the art of recording a short section of music on-the-spot and adding multiple parts on top of the original “loop.”  It makes it sound like a few guitars are playing at once, but it’s all coming from your one guitar.  Whether enhancing your performance on stage or using it to practice lead at home, Reggie will show you guitar looping techniques which will improve your playing.
