We are a growing church family in Camarillo that focuses on the basics. We follow Jesus and care about kids. We gather for worship on Sundays at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. Our student ministry, Crave, meets every Sunday at 5:30 p.m. We host and encourage a variety of small groups during the year. We work side-by-side with 20-some other churches Camarillo. We partner with Young Life and Young Athletes for Christ to reach students for Christ. We stand with and work with dozens of Bible-teaching churches in Ventura County. We also offer discipleship classes and have a God-centered Preschool. We run a thirft-store outreach in old town Moorpark called Luther's Attic, serving the community. And we also assist in a coffee house outreach during the summer in Naknek, Alaska, providing hospitality, friendship, Wifi and a good cup of Joe at a coffee shop called The Net. We teach the Bible, verse-by-verse and build families, showing people how to get in touch with Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. We are affiliated with a Christ-centered family of 270 churches across the country called the AFLC. To learn more about the Association of Free Lutheran Congregations, see www.aflc.org.

Services start at 7:00 p.m. with guest speakers from the congregation and church leadership sharing. During the six Wednesdays of Lent, Bible teachers will walk us through six aspects of spritual gifts. The series is called "Lent a Gift."
February 10 ─ "Your Five Talents" Matthew 25:14-30
February 17 ─ "You are the Clay" Jeremiah 18:1-6.
February 24 ─ "Uniquely Chosen" 1 Corinthians 12:4-20
March 2 ─ "Unwrapping your Gifts" Romans 12:3-10
March 9 ─ "Fruits verses Gifts" Galatians 5:19-26
March 16 ─ "Your Calling" 1 Corinthians 1:26-31
New series for the year: The Book of Acts: "The Spreading Flame."
Explore with us the 28 chapters of the Book of Acts. The 32-part series is not so much a study of the Apostles work, but a study of how the Holy Spirit works. Listeners will explore how the first New Testament congregations started and how new believers began the new movement of the Gospel of Jesus. Study Luke's record of the days between Christ's ascension, six weeks after His Resurrection, until Paul's final journey to Rome before his work ended in 67 A.D. FInd yourself in the studies of the primary characters of this book, as God unfolds "The Spreading Flame" of the Gospel. And find your place in the dynamic body of believers who will enjoy the growth of the movement of the Holy Spirit until Christ's return.
Spiritual Gifts Series in April: Grace Gifts.
What is your Spiritual Gift? Grow with us on Sunday series talks in April
Spiritual Gifts studies on Sunday mornings, April 3, 10, 17, 24: After Resurrecrtion Sunday, the Good Shepherd family is examining the "Grace Gifts." Did you know every believer gets a gift, chosen by the Holy Spirit, to benefit God's family. God spreads them out, dispeses them among believers to help His body function in a healthy way. Yours may be teaching, service, prophecy, giving, leadership, mercy, service or encouragement -- or one of dozens of other gifts described in the New Testament. Study with us on Wednesday nights during Lent, and on Sunday mornings in April. For more information on spiritual gift surveys -- or to take a 200-question gifts inventory, contact Bill Chase at 805-813-0878.
Spiritual Gift Inventories will be offered Sundays in April
RESOLUTE CONFERENCE AUDIO: Click on the messages in the section above. Explore the questions your generation is asking: Does God exist? What is truth? What is real? And how can I know the historical biographies of Jesus are accurate. Learn to articulate the case for Christ to skeptics, doubters, intellects and friends who have not experienced the transforming power of Jesus Christ. Wade Mobley, a seminary dean and president of the the AFLC Bible School in Minneapolis, brings an insightful, biblical and persuasive answer for skeptical minds.
