Beacon of Light

Beacon of Light

California mandates sex education in public schools. Planned Parenthood supplies most of the state’s required curriculum on subjects such as STD’s, birth control, pornography, gender dysphoria and other explicit topics. Beacon of Light’s alternative, state-compliant curriculum shines a bright light on the TRUTH that Sex is a BIG DEAL with the goal of preventing life-long emotional and physical consequences of having sex at a young age.

Maven

The culture is speaking to our kids. Every. Single. Day. 

Gender identity. Homosexuality. Porn. Casual sex. Consumerism. Affluence. Substance abuse. Social media. Entertainment. Racial tension. Secularism. Most youth are NOT ready for these conversations. 

How can our youth be salt and light in this hostile secular culture? By knowing and proclaiming God’s truth, pursuing and living out His goodness and creating beauty that points back to Jesus.  

Help raise up a new up a new generation of confident and courageous Christ-followers.

Trellis – Homeless

It has been a challenging year for everyone, and especially for our neighbors who are without a consistent food and shelter.  Though the COVID pandemic required changes in the way things get done, our partners at Trellis have continued to work with the homeless, providing food, clothing, personal storage home furnishings, and household items to those in need.  Trellis representatives have continued to share God’s love by helping homeless reconnect with family, access needed services, and learn about the God who loves them just the way they are.

Watts Powerhouse Church

Powerhouse Church is located in the projects of Watts. It is a beacon of light and hope to 100’s of families in need. We hope to partner with them to serve meals while they learn about the hope we have in Jesus. While it is only a 40 minute drive, the people who live in the projects live very different lives than we do. We hope to help them hire workers from the community to serve the church, as well as provide supplies for the children.
