Welcome to the Family
We welcome three new members (Cathleen, Geoffrey, and Melody) to our church family. They were accepted as members by the church on December 17, 2000 and baptized on December 24. We had a good turnout at Pastor Larry’s home who witnessed their baptism. We praise God for a sunny December afternoon.


We praise God for bringing the two Christmas Celebrations to a close. We had a great time in both the English and the Chinese program. We had about 150-180 people attending each evening. Many of them were seekers. May the seed of the Gospel that sown through the "play" and the "message" continue to work in their hearts.

Happy Lunar New Year
I wish all of you a happy new year. This is the year of the Dog. In reality, I guess it doesn’t really mean too much what the “Dog” represents. I do pray that you will have an abundant year, that God will put a hedge around your family as protection, and that the Lord will guide you into successful endeavors.


World Christian Conference
There is an annual Missions conference to be held in Santa Cruz from February 17th through 20th. We thank God that we have twelve from our church who registered to attend. Pray that the Lord will continue to reveal His will in them through the keynote speaker and the workshop speakers.


Building Project Update
It has been a while since the last update of the building project. At this point, the steel structure engineer should be putting the latest update for the architect to review. At the same time, we will secure a structural engineer to do all the necessary calculations. Hopefully we will have all the drawings for submittal to the city in the Spring.

Building Project Update
We would like to thank everyone who participated in organizing the Fund Raising Dinner and other activities for the Building Project. At this point, we are about 80% of our target. While the architect continues to draw up the plan, the Building committee continues to meet to decide the next step. Regardless whether we will move forward to build at this time, we ask that the “Seed of Division” will be removed from among us. Please continue to pray for the project as the Lord moves you.


Purpose Driven Life
The church plans to use the book Purpose Driven Life as part of the whole church’s curriculum for adults Sunday school classes for three months, starting April. We want to emphasize that this is only a textbook; it is by no means to replace the true Textbook—the Bible. The book is to be viewed as a tool to learn what God intended Christians to do on earth. After that, we will resume the regular curriculum. If you haven’t joined our Sunday school yet, I invite you to join us every Sunday. Other than the Youth and the Children classes, we have three Chinese classes, starting at 9:30 am , and three English classes, starting at 11:00am . Look forward to seeing you.


Engagements: Nick and Janely, and Kin and Charmine. Neither couple has decided on the wedding date yet. May God continue to bless their courtship.


Baby: The safe arrival of Sami from China (new baby of Philip and Mary Ann).

Ray and Rhena were married on December 26, 2002. May God bless their marriage and shower blessings upon them as they begin to build a new family.


Wedding bells will finally be ringing for Frank and Yisi on February 8. May God bless their wedding day with plenty of memorable moments and may their marriage be built on Christ.


Congratulations also to Mr. & Mrs. Yu, whose daughter was married in January. May God pour blessings on them as well.


Church Building Update
We have invited our architect, Jack Christensen, and the potential general contractor, Larry Kent, to share with us the building project on February 2 during lunch. They made themselves available to answer any technical questions about the building project. We are almost at the point to submit for "Conditional Use Permit" with the city of San Jose. Please continue to pray for the project.


Getting Involved
The first "Work Day" this year is scheduled on February 15. You are more than welcome to come and participate in fixing up the church building to make it presentable for worship.


Our first ever ESL classes, headed by our Minister, Pinnie, started on January 20. We have a total of eight people who showed up. We are excited about this new ministry. May God continue to bless this work and provide strength to the teachers.

Building Project
We had just completed the extension of the second floor on the multipurpose hall. As we closed the “book” on that project, we have already faced with shortage of space. With the expansion of Self Control Fellowship into Young married couple group, Career group, and College group, we have to look for more rooms. With the increased number of Worship attendance, we’re almost filled to capacity in the Joint worships. Therefore, it is time to move ahead to build the Sanctuary. We plan to use 12 to 15 months for architectural design and to secure the building permit, and 9 to 12 months to complete the construction.


I’m excited about the project. With the current economic downturn, we must realize that this takes a leap of faith on everyone’s part. Therefore, I encourage you to join heart with me to pray for the Lord’s guidance and provision.


You are Invited !
The quarterly All-church Workday is scheduled on February 16. You are invited to spend a few hours to make the church building cleaner and better.


Finally, My wife and I wish all of you a Happy Lunar New Year. May God richly bless you and your family!
