The Ministries of our Church
What a blessing it is to be in the house of the Lord this beautiful Sabbath Day!
Berean, I can’t thank you enough for your support of Christian Education. Education Day was a real blessing! We were blessed by our speaker, Pastor Lawrence Steven Dorsey II, who reminded us that the education that our children need is an education that will last through eternity. Our music was brought to us by the Praise Gospel Singers who stirred our hearts with their soulful, spirit-led singing. We heard from a grandfather rearing his two grandsons and a single mother of two who have stepped out on faith and, even though they can’t see a way, are sacrificing to send their children to Los Angeles Adventist Academy. The Sabbath evening concert began with the Berean Praise Team stirring our hearts by uplifting the name of Jesus followed by the interpretative dancing of Nevaeh and the sweet voice of Portia Sankey. Then what we all were waiting for—the Praise Gospel Singers took the stage and had the church on its feet with their melodious voices and exceptional harmony giving glory and honor to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. What a high day in Zion!
But the blessings didn’t stop there. We needed $2,500 and the Lord answered our prayer! Praise His Holy Name! Berean, we serve a mighty God, and nothing is too hard for Him. At the beginning of May we needed $5,000 and in the months of May and June, you graciously gave over $2,500! I stand in awe of how God answers prayer by touching the hearts of His people. We now have the $10,000 needed to pay the first month’s tuition and registration fees for our K-12 students.
Thank you again for your generous support of Christian Education. May the Lord bless you and keep you and cause His face to shine upon you.
Your sister in Christ,
Toni Osborne, Education Secretary
