Reflections
If you can say that Christ is your all, then your treasure will never
be gone; for He will never leave you, nor forsake you. Not only in
this world, but also in that which is to come, you shall be happy and
blessed, for you shall be crowned with glory, and made to sit with
Christ on His throne for ever.
Charles Spurgeon
There is no such thing as not worshipping. Everybody worships.
The only choice we get is what to worship.
David Foster Wallace
The bride eyes not her garment, but her dear Bridegroom’s face;
I will not gaze at glory, but on my King of grace.
Not at the crown He giveth, but on His pierced hand;
The Lamb is all the glory of Emmanuel’s land.

God Calls Us to Worship
Call to Worship – Psalm 67:1-3
Leader: May God be gracious to us and bless us
and make His face to shine upon us,
that Your way may be known on earth,
Your saving power among all nations.
All:
Let the peoples praise You, O God;
let all the peoples praise You!
Offerings of the People
The offering is a way for followers of Jesus to support the mission
and ministry of the church. We offer a sacrificial portion of our
resources – time, talents, possessions – as an act of faith and
gratitude in response to God’s grace.
If you are a guest, we are glad you are here today. Please feel no
obligation to give.
God Speaks to Us
Sermon Scripture – John 12:1-8
Six days before the Passover, Jesus therefore
came to Bethany, where Lazarus was,
whom Jesus had raised from the dead.
2
So they gave a dinner for Him there.
Martha served, and Lazarus was one of those
reclining with Him at table.
3
Mary therefore took a pound of expensive ointment
made from pure nard, and anointed the feet of Jesus
and wiped His feet with her hair.
The house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
4
But Judas Iscariot, one of His disciples
(he who was about to betray Him), said,
5
“Why was this ointment not sold for three hundred denarii
and given to the poor?”
6
He said this, not because he cared about the poor,
but because he was a thief,
and having charge of the moneybag
he used to help himself to what was put into it.
7
Jesus said, “Leave her alone,
so that she may keep it for the day of My burial.
8
For the poor you always have with you,
but you do not always have Me.”

Questions People Ask
About Our Church Community
Do I fit here?
We are a patchwork crowd of imperfect people from all over
L.A., from all walks of life, from those who long to know God
more deeply to those who wonder if God is even there. If you are
looking for a place to belong, you are in good company.
Finding Community
Does anybody want to know me?
As people who have been set free by the gospel, we want to know
and love one another as we are known and loved by Jesus.
Am I needed?
Absolutely. Whether you are an introvert or an extrovert, a
newcomer or an old-timer, this community needs your unique
gifts, talents, and perspectives, both for our community’s health
and for your personal growth.
Why commit?
In every relationship, growth requires commitment. We live in a
transient city; joining this community provides a spiritual family
that walks with and cares for you.
