INVITATION TO FREEDOM                                       

For Freedom Christ Has Set Us Free!  (Galatians 5:2)

Join us this Sunday for a time of worship with communion  as we give thanks for the gift of freedom and spend time asking what it means to participate in setting other free. 

We are privileged to have Jocelyn White as our preacher on Sunday.  She serves as a Director of Church Mobilization for International Justice Mission. Jocelyn and her husband co-founded Slavery No More, a non-profit organization working with law enforcement and the public to fight both domestic and international human trafficking. Jocelyn is also an active member of the Los Angeles Metro Task Force on Human Trafficking Outreach Committee and has worked with Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking (DMST) survivors now living in an aftercare home in Southern California.

If you missed Brian Cress' sermon, Justice for Life, on August 7, we invite you to listen here by clicking audio above.

We are taking our worship in action out of the building.There will be no gathering this week at 415 Westlake. Instead, we invite you to spend the morning/day in your neighborhood.

Looking for ideas?

  • Invite neighbors over for a barbecue
  • Take on a work project in a your local neighborhood
  • Visit a local coffee shop
  • Prayerfully walk/bike your neighborhood and make note of what you notice.
  • Take a rest in the true sense of Sabbath and cease from your everyday work to pause in a restorative way (use your creativity to decide how). 

If you would like to plan an event/activity in your neighborhood, let us know so we can post here. Email your plans to

Also, we would love to hear from you after our August Worship in Action Sunday and learn from your experience. We worship our God, who is dynamic and present and invites us to engage in our world as people of hope and grace.
