The New Testament was written to give Christians direction on how to live alongside the mindless menace of violence. Right now when sensitivities are high and wounds are fresh, may the church of Jesus Christ lead the way in promoting prayerful peace, comfort and unity, starting in God’s house and then overflowing into the culture. May we truly learn to operate on the biblical principle of oneness, filled with compassion toward the hurting and openness toward those whose opinions and life experiences may differ from our own.

On Saturday, September 21st, Playa Christian Church Church will host a community candlelight prayer vigil at the Playa Del Rey Elementary School to bring attention to the astonishing rise of mass shootings, gun violence, and suicides devestating our nation.

This event will honor those who have lost their lives to this violence, hold up those who were harmed before the mercy of God, and ask for healing for the brokenhearted.

People are hurting and they need hope.

In order to make this a powerful, community-wide statement, we need your support.

9-22 Blood Drive for the Red Cross

The Red Cross Bloodmobile will be visiting Playa Christian Church and collecting blood before and after our normal worship service. Blood donation is a community responsibility. While you’re reading this, a local patient needs blood.

  • Blood is needed every two seconds.
  • About one in seven people entering a hospital needs blood.
  • Blood is always needed for treatment of accident victims, victims of violence and those needing surgery.
  • Blood cannot be manufactured.
  • Only 37 percent of our country’s population is eligible to give blood, and less than 10 percent of those who can donate actually do donate annually.

To make your life-saving donation please contact Patty Sweany (805.712.8190) or visit the Red Cross online and enter sponsor code “PlayaChristian” in the Find A Blood Drive box in the upper right corner.
