September 12 is our annual church picnic. You are invited to join us at Emma Prusch Farm Park, 647 South King Road, San Jose from 11:30am – 4pm. In order to prepare for adequate food, you need to register ($3.00 for anyone who is 5 y.o. and older; free for children under 5 and new invited guests).



English Pastoral Search


Pastoral Search Committee had their first meeting last month. We have decided to start the searching process by advertising our need on some religious publications. Should you know of someone who is interested, please have him send a resume to Pastor Larry, the chairperson of the committee.



Building Project Update


Pastor Larry and Jack Christensen (architect) went to speak with the Building Department of San Jose to explain our capacity issue, and the result was positive.


The Building project is on-going. We are excited to see the changing progress every week as we come to worship. The City Planner has scheduled our CUP application on September 6 (Wednesday) at 6:30. Please pray for this important meeting.

Our Annual Picnic is set on September 13 (Saturday) at Ed. R. Levin Park, Milpitas – Sandy Wool Site from 11:00am to 4:00pm. Activities include lunch, games, fishing, biking, and so on. Registration is $3.00, and parking is $7.00. Come and join us! Have a blast!


Something New
The Nominating Committee will propose to the church of forming three new service departments. The newest one is the Informational Technology (IT) Department. A new Children Department will be spinning off from Sunday school and Church Training Department in order to have a better planning for all Sundays and Fridays programs for children. Finally, Church Training Department, under the proposal, will be called Fellowship/small group Department.
The Board of Deacons is working on a proposal to the church of implementing a Sabbatical leave for pastoral staff. It is very likely that Pastor Larry will be on Sabbatical soon.

You are invited to a special Short-term Missions sharing on Friday (8th). This year, our missionaries were sent to the Native Americans in Arizona and to Taiwan. You will hear their testimony. We will also be sending a team to Japan next month.

You are also invited to join us for our annual church picnic on Saturday (9th). Just like last year, we will be having the picnic at Shadow Cliff in Pleasanton. All are welcome. It starts from 11:00 to whenever you feel like leaving the park.


On the Light Side—jokes to have a laugh
Johnny had been misbehaving and was sent to his room. After a while, he emerged and informed his mother that he had thought it over and then said a prayer. “Fine,” said the pleased mother. “If you ask God to help you not misbehave, He will help you.” “Oh, I didn’t ask Him to help me not misbehave,” said Johnny. “I asked Him to help you put up with me.”


A minister questioned a six-year-old: “So your mother says a prayer for you each night. Very commendable. What does she say?” The little boy replied, “Thank God, he’s in bed!”


A couple with three children waited in line at San Francisco’s Pier 41 to purchase tickets for a boat trip to Alcatraz. Others watched with varying degrees of sympathy and irritation as the young children fidgeted, whined, and punched one another. The frazzled parents reprimanded them to no avail. Finally they reached the ticket window. “Five tickets, please,” the father said. “Two round trip, three one way.”


The minister gave his Sunday morning service, as usual; but this particular Sunday, it was considerably longer than normal. Later, at the door, shaking hands with parishioners as they moved out, one man said, “Your sermon, Pastor, was simply wonderful—so invigorating and inspiring and refreshing.” The minister, of course, broke out in a big smile, only to hear the man add, “Why, I felt like a new man when I woke up!”


The above jokes are taken from Medicine for the Soul by Dr. David Jeremiah

Church Picnic
Our annual church picnic is set for September 10 (Saturday) from 11:00 to 3:00 at Shadow Cliffs in Pleasanton. We invite you to come and share a day of fellowship with us.


Our very first Cultural Day that was held on August 27 was a success. We praise God for such an event to bring out the uniqueness of the Chinese culture. After all the performances, special Chinese tea and snack were served while congregants enjoyed the Chinese art exhibitions. Over twenty paintings were sold to raise fund for the Church building project. With a matching fund by an anonymous donor, we have raised about eight thousand dollars!


Our Condolences
Our condolences go to Jerry Wong and his family for losing his mother to cancer last Sunday. May the Lord comfort him and the family with surpassing peace.


Our condolences also go to Chau Yee for losing her father in Hong Kong. She and her son will leave for Hong Kong to attend his funeral. May the Lord guard them and give them peace in this time of loss.

Welcome Back
All the short-term missionaries who went China and Arizona have returned safely. I’m sure God has impressed on each of them during the trip. We sure would like to listen to their testimony. The Mission Department will organize different opportunities during Sunday worships for them to share their experience. May God continue to work the life of the missionaries as well as those they have touched.


The Annual Church Picnic will be held on September 11 at Ed Levin Park in Milpitas from 11:00am till 5:00pm . We invite you to come and join us for a day of outdoor activities and fellowship. For details, please call the church office.


Alex and Karen were married in August and have returned from their honeymoon. They look very much relaxed. May God continue to bless their marriage.


Clayton and Christina will be married this month. They are busy trying to get everything done before the wedding day. We pray that God will provide a pleasant day for the wedding, and bless them as they unite their lives together.

Frank and Sarah became proud grandparents to their daughter’s baby boy, Ryan Enoch, last month. Pray that Ryan will grow both in stature and in the love of God.

Wedding Bells:
Tim and Jennifer were married on August 16. The helpers turned the fellowship hall into a wedding chapel. Nicely done!


Meng and Danei will be married on August 31 in Fremont. This marks the fifth wedding couples this year for our church.


May God bless both couples, as they will begin to build their lives together.


Our Annual Picnic will be held on September 6, from 11:00am-4:00pm at Ed Levin Park, Milpitas (ELM Group Area). Lunch will be served at noon. Please call the office to register ($2.00 registration fee). Limited space and fee for parking—carpool is encouraged.


Our Condolences
Rev. Richard Li, who served the Lord faithfully for many years, was called Home a couple of weeks ago in Los Angeles. He left behind his wife, Margaret, and five daughters. A memorial service was held on August 30, 2003 at Golden Gate Christian Church in San Francisco.

Deacons’ Retreats
This year’s Deacons’ Retreat will be held on September 2nd (Labor Day Monday). We will be discussing some of the changes of the church, the direction we should take in order to adjust to the changing needs of the people, and among other important issues. Please pray for us so that we can be effective spiritual leaders of the church.


Business Meeting
This quarter’s Business Meeting will be held on September 22, immediately following the Chinese Worship. This is an important meeting. Not only do we need to elect church officers for next year, we also need to pass the amendments of the Constitution and Bylaws.


We want to welcome two new preachers to the pulpit: Pinnie Wu (Associate Minister) will be preaching on 8/25 and again in September. Andy Dao (Associate Deacon) will be preaching on September 1.


Pastor Larry finished with the series on the “Sermon on the Mount.” He is complementing to preach a series on the life of Joseph, titled “Living by Faith.” Please pray for him.


He is also going on vacation from September 10 through September 27. Please contact Pinnie for any assistance during his absence.
