Overview of World Religions Course

Overview of World Religions: Starting Sunday, May 17 at 9 a.m., the Resplendent Light Adult Sunday School will be presenting a 6 week DVD-based course called “Christianity, Cults and Religions”.

Learn about the basic tenets of the Christian faith, fundamental beliefs of some of the world religions, and tips on how Christians can effectively share their faith.

If you are interested in joining this class, please speak with Mr Paul Yamamoto or Jeff Shimoyama, as study books will need to be distributed. We thank Pastor Cliff Asai for obtaining appropriate study materials for this timely course, developed by former Bible Answer Man, Mr Paul Carden.

On the Move!

We will be moving our worship services temporarily to our office complex (2800 28th Street, Santa Monica) on Sunday, April 19, 2015 due to the remodeling of the Conference Rooms for the next two months. We will meet in the atrium area within our office complex which is located a few steps from our (Basecamp) office location within the 2800 28th Street Building. The Lord has graciously provided us with a slight change of venue that features a view of the gardens and open air experience. Parking is available at the 2800 28th Street building location. We will begin services in the atrium area at 10:15 a.m. with Adult Sunday School at 9:00 a.m. in our meeting room and prayer at 9:45 a.m. Refreshment will be served after service in our offices.

We’ve Moved!

LACS March 23, 2014 was the last Sunday we met at Pastor Cliff & Susan’s home in West Los Angeles. The Asai’s home is where the Resplendent Light Community Church was birthed and we started as a church plant a little over a year ago. That all changed with our move on March 29, 2014, to our new location at the Los Angeles Center Studios Theater near downtown Los Angeles. Our new address for Sunday worship is: Los Angeles Center Studios, 1201 West 5th Street, Los Angeles, 90017.

LACS2Every Sunday we gather at the Beaudry Theater within the Los Angeles Center Studios to pray, gather, worship and fellowship together. The new facilities provide us with the ability to grow and experience the blessings of a spacious theater environment. We invite you to join us each and every Sunday that start at 10:15 a.m. We offer an adult bible study at 9:00 a.m. and prayer fellowship at 9:45 a.m.

cloverparkWe have established offices and our basecamp in the Santa Monica Business Park located at 2800 28th Street, Suite 122, Santa Monica, 90405. (Link: map & directions) The facilities are strategically placed to serve the surrounding community on a daily basis as we partner with the greater area of Santa Monica through ministries and serving. We believe we want to be located where we can best serve the community and continue to learn and love our neighbors.
