Please pray! We’re hearing of more people in our church whose extended family members or coworkers are testing positive for Coronavirus.
Erilen (pictured below) is a nurse in our congregation who is being transferred to the ICU where she will treat Coronavirus patients first hand. There are many more from our church who are right there in the front lines. We covet your prayers, these are definitely days to be on our knees! (2 Chronicles 7:14; Ezekiel 22:30; John 15:7; 1 John 5:14)
The Men’s Breakfast was a complete blessing! Over 180 guys came out and fellowshipped while enjoying pancakes, eggs, bacon, and potatoes (thank you servants!). After breakfast, Pastor David Rosales of Calvary Chapel Chino Valley taught a great message on having and being a true friend (like the friends who brought the paralytic man to Jesus – Luke 5:18). It’s a study geared towards every man! If you haven’t heard it, or you want to listen to it again, you can do so by clicking below.

The men went up to Twin Peaks again this year for the 2014 Calvary Chapel El Monte’s Annual Men’s Retreat. It seems like each year the Men’s Retreat just gets better and better. This year was an outright blessing, for many of the guys it was their first time. Once again we were blessed to partner with Calvary Chapel LAX.
The theme of this year’s conference was “Cross Training.” We were honored to welcome Pastor & Author, Gayle Erwin of Servant Quarters Ministry as our guest speaker. Pastor Gayle has been around ministry & Calvary Chapel for decades, and travels around the globe playing, as he puts it, “the one string on my guitar.” That “one string” is the Nature of Jesus, a message developed over a lifetime of study and experience – a simple message of servant lifestyle.
As always the Twin Peaks Conference center is a great place to be – the facility, staff, and of course the food are always fantastic, but the teachings and fellowship are the highlights every year. God is always faithful to do an amazing work in establishing real brotherhoods between the guys. If for some reason you weren’t able to go with us this year, seriously pray about making plans to go next year, if the Lord wills.
