Majesty Adventures is a new outreach of LDPBC targeting hikers, backpackers and other outdoor enthusiast. This ministry will provide great fellowship for believers and is designed to trigger opportunities to share the gospel with non-believers. We will provide outdoor experiences for the beginner, intermediate and more advanced hikers. We will do easy day-hikes as well as over-nighters into some incredible backcountry locations in and around the Yosemite area. Mitch Miller, Ken Allen and Paul Baker will lead the way on this unique outreach. For more information and trips planned contact them or check out our new web site at www.majestyadventures.com
Sunday, January 25, all of the Adult Small Groups met together and heard testimonies about Connecting with God, with other believers and with the lost. These were a great encouragement to all of us. We then divided up into groups which focused on the three aspeects of CONNECT. These mini-workshops challenged us to a higher level of connection with one another and challenge us to be disciple makers.
"Come to me, all of you who are tired and have heavy loads, and I will give you rest" Matthew 11:28 (NCV)
Wouldn't it be nice if on the first day of every new year all the things we want to change would really change? Bad habits - gone. Bad Credit - history. Stress - out of here. Marriage trouble - solved. Money worries - puff. Weariness - dissolved. Tiredness - no more. Anxiety - goodbye. Relational headaches - done. If only it were just that easy, unfortunatley even for the most positive among us reality catches up all too soon. More often than not we drag ourselves into the next year.
The invitation of Jesus you read above speaks right into our caffeine driven culture filled with high stress, pressure, anxiety, worry, frustration, depression, crumbling families, dysfunction, and go, go, go. The words "rest" never sounded so good.
I happen to believe that when Jesus says something he really means it. He cares about all my life, both in the here and now and in eternity. If you are "Tired", if your load is crushing you, if you are looking for rest, for change, for peace maybe it is time for you to take up Jesus' invitation.
"Accept my teachings and learn from me, because I am gentle and hunble in spirit, and you will find rest for your lives (souls/psyches). The teaching that I ask you to accept is easy; the load I give you to carry is light" Matthew 11:29-30 (NCV, parenthesis mine)
I invite you to join is in 2014 to take Jesus at His Word.
To God be all the glory, love you, Pastor Hans
Our first Mariposa Youth Rally was great! Over 140 youth participated in games and fellowship together. There were four youth that accepted Christ. The youth enjoyed gathering together to listen to speakers and encourage each other in their faith. They were reminded to keep each other accountable in their walk with Christ. We're looking forward to our next Mariposa Rally!
Friday night Oct 18th lots of the ladies were decked out in their poodle skirts and scarfs for that 50's-60's look. A trivia contest brought back memories of hula-hoops. potato heads, bomb shelters, Elvis, Purple people eater and lots more. It was a great evening, wonderful fellowship and as always terrific home cookin'. Elvis may still be in chiropractic care from trying to move those hips like he onced did but I hear he will recover. Check out more photos on the Amazing Grays Web Page.
August 10, marked 29 years of dedicated service by Pastor Hans and Susie Frei. It has been an amazing journey and Pastor and Susie have been so faithful. There have been many challenges over the years but God has never failed. We love and appreciate everything they have done. Pastor Paul, the Associate Pastor said "if Hans will stick around another year we will throw a party for the big 30!" We are all looking forward to it.
Youth Camp - Fuge- has come to an end, but the youth, counselors and leaders are still excited about what God did in the lives of the 30+ youth from LDPBC that attended. DavidMark, Youth Pastor, reports that it was truely awesome to see the youth with hands raised in worship as they sensed God's presence in their lives. "They really ministered to one another" in a way they had never done before, Wynter said. Thanks to all who went as well as drivers, and those who supported the fundraisers that made this all possible. Check out Fuge-2013 photos on the "Youth" page of this site.
