Christ Church will begin live (and Zoom) services October 4, at La Huerta Eventos facility (the location of the Tuesday Organic Market) with a limitation of attendance to about 30 percent of total occupancy and Covid-19 Jalisco state ordinances in place.
The Bible Study group, hosted by Rev. Danny Borkowski, meets via Zoom Wednesday, September 30, 1:30 p.m., to learn about the inspired contents of the Bible and share their insights with each other.
Sunday, September 27, Pastor Wayne will preach his sermon on Compromise from Galatians 2:1-10 at the 10 a.m. service of the Lakeside Presbyterian Church.
It is good to have compromise in certain situations, but there are certain things that we deal with spiritually for which compromise is unacceptable. Paul was dealing with those that wanted to add to the Gospel. The resulting compromise led to a Gospel that no longer had the power to save. Non-acceptance causes suffering; in every situation we live, we have to flow with life to live in peace.
Lakeside Presbyterian delivered 32 despensas (pantry supplies) from September 13 to 19.

Abundant Life Church
What does it mean to have a Lord and Savior? Some think of God as a friendly helper who is with us along the way, others as a powerful sovereign being who is to be feared and avoided as much as possible. We know God both loves us and is to be feared. We must go before Him on His terms and not ours. Sunday, September 27, 10 a.m., Pastor Gary challenges our concept of God and encourages us to come before Him as He requires.
The service is limited to 50 people, so be one of the first to arrive. Those who cannot be with us in person will enjoy our services both on our Facebook page as well as our YouTube channel and at abundantlifec-hapala.com.
Abundant Life Church is affiliated with the Assemblies of God of Mexico. English Bible study is Wednesdays at 3 p.m. Abundant Life Church, Carretera Chapala-Joco 140, San Antonio Tlayacapan.
None of us can define God in the sense of exhaustively describing who He is, but we can describe Him truthfully because He has made Himself known to us in his Word. God makes Himself known to us by taking up the things He has created and using them to describe Himself to us as analogies. Thus He is a lion, a rock or a fire. The things he uses to describe himself are neither identical with him, nor utterly different from him. He is a rock, for example, not because he is made of stone but that he is solid and reliable. He can use those things to describe himself, and then illuminate our minds to understand and believe those descriptions. What a glorious and wise God we serve.
The church meets online every Sunday at 10 a.m.
