If you were not at church this weekend we made an announcement about our upcoming launch of another location in the city of San Clemente. I want to give you some clarity if anyone has confusion.
1. We are faced with continuing challenges in the area of limited parking which are soon to become an even greater challenge with more limited parking.
2. We have actively look for facilities to lease, or purchase, or build, that would enable us to continue to minister affectively. Although still actively praying and looking the Lord hasn't opened any doors.
3. Our freeway off ramp coming from the South is once again under major construction which hinders our congregation coming to church.
4. 52% of our congregation travels from the South and 48% travels from the North.
These details and more led us to take a step of faith and begin another campus in San Clemente where over half of our congregation lives. I will say that this was not my first choice, but it was the Lords choice. We have one church in two locations. All of our midweek services will remain the same. Its only on the weekends that we will make this adjustment to accommodate our needs.
I am pleased to share that our congregation is excited about this new opportunity. At the same time there are some who maybe confused.
There is a church meeting in the Talega Area in San Clemente. The church is led by Holland Davis. The church for quite some time was called Worship Life. Then later on the word Calvary was added to make it, Worship Life Calvary. And now, fairly recent it has been changed again to Calvary Chapel San Clemente. The last thing we want is for their to be any confusion within the body of Christ especially since we are ministering in the same city.
There are over 65,000 people in the San Clemente area which presents a great need, and a great opportuinty. Having lived in the city for over 7 years I have seen this personally. I am thankful that Calvary Chapel San Clemente, led by Holland Davis is here in town and pray that the LORD continues to bless the work of their hands within the community.
After 20 years of pastoral ministry I am well aware of the fact that God uses all different churches and different pastors with different gifts. If you live in the area and the Lord leads you I encourage you to check out his fellowship meeting at the Vista Del Mar School in Talega.
At the same time Calvary San Juan is excited to minister to over half of our fellowship that also lives in the city as we begin the San Clemente campus.
