When we understand what Jesus endured that we might have the kind of relationship with Him where we begin to live and love like Him, it’s going to overflow into our interactions. We will increasingly become people of compassion just like Jesus was (Matthew 9.36). A distinctive of this network of churches is a compassionate heart.
Being compassionate starts with loving people in the church, but we’re also committed to loving and serving our community. One of the ways we serve our community is to help at major events. Branch members have volunteered at the Sugarbeet Festival, the Race on the Base, Trunk or Treat, and Winter Wonderland. We also hope to partner with local non-profit organizations caring for those in need in the Los Alamitos and Rossmoor area. And, when the time is right, we will compassionately connect with partner ministries around the world.
