We at Resplendent Light Community Church celebrated our 3rd Anniversary in the City of Santa Monica! Our church started in the home of Cliff & Susan Asai on February 3, 2013 and moved a little over a year afterwards to our current location in the Santa Monica Business Park. There have been many challenges starting out as a new church plant, however, our church community remains steadfast and supportive of both our vision and mission to love our neighbors in Santa Monica. We have gotten to know many young families in the area who frequent Clover Park through our weekday toddler co-op, participated with the Santa Monica Police Department through their chaplaincy program and helped the poor and disadvantaged through the food giving and packing homeless kits.
We begin our fourth year looking forward to how we serve those around us through continued involvement with the spiritual needs of International students at both Santa Monica College and UCLA. We reach out to those who frequent and work at the County Courthouse in Santa Monica every Wednesday during noontime prayer at the flagpole. Every Thursday morning, pastors and chaplains of various denominations gather in unity to pray for City of Santa Monica and for those who are in leadership. It is our goal this year to work more closely with the City of Santa Monica and join in volunteering and praying for specific areas of concerns within the community.
There is much to look forward to in 2016 and we are so thankful that we have been called to serve and reach out to our neighbors in the workplace and community which we reside. God is Good.
