Special thanks to Pastor Baize, First Lady Pat and all of OCV staff for their extraordinary support allowing us to host this year's outreach on their property.  They provided a wide variety of their services to include electricity, water, gym, white tent, cafeteria along w/all their cooking equipment, sound system, hand held walky talkys, tables, chairs and countless of supplies.  We had the pleasure of working alongside Pastor Baize & his wife Pat, Deidra, Veronica, Frank, Ivy and Chris w/Sounds System are just a few to mention, your generosity and responses to assist was amazing and a HUGE blessing...THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

A BIG thank you to ALL who helped with our outreach this past Saturday! We couldn't have done it without you. Everything went so well and we are so thankful for each and every one of you and how you played a huge part in bringing Christmas but most important pervasive hope to our homeless neighbors and our community. 

This year we were blessed with over 150 Christmas cards written by children which included a monetary gift.  We formed 4 teams of 1 Adult to 4 children and they addressed our neighbors by name and had an actual conversation with them before presenting their cards.  One neighbor stated "I haven't seen my child in over 20 years but I remember her writing was some what like this one".  Also, we had a donation of 36 beautiful bucket pale baskets filled with hygiene products and goodies that were given as gifts to our core homeless neighbors that attend every Saturday not only for their meal but for WORSHIP and the WORD of GOD as well, Praise the Lord!  

The out pour in donations of food, beverage, clothing, shoes, bedding items, raffle prizes to include a beautiful bicycle w/a helmet, many sleeping bags, tents, knitting scarves and hats w/hygiene, toilette and even toys for the children who showed up with their families. 

This is What GOD DID! *Praise the Lord*

Services/Donations and ALL was provided by the BODY of CHRIST from different churches coming together to serve our community and reach out to the lost and broken with the Gospel and Love of Jesus Christ.

The support from so many continues to make our outreaches a huge success...THANK YOU Rock Church, East Lake Church, Grace Full Gospel Ministry-South Bay, South Bay Christian Outreach Coalition (I.C.C., Gives Hope Ministry, Chula Vista Church of Christ, Sons of Thunder & Light House), Good Samaritan Worship Center-S.D, Grace Full Gospel Ministry-Oceanside and Pastor Mark along with many that I may not be aware of.

Shining God's Light

We have felt the darkness of sin come over our nation with the recent tragic events on both sides of our country.  We mourn and pray for the peace and comfort through Christ will come to those who lost a loved one.  For us who call ourselves Christ-followers, our commission from Christ to make disciples who make disciples could not be more important or of more urgency.  Our society and culture have pushed God out of our schools, government and businesses.  The solution starts with us, sharing the gospel of Christ, one heart at a time.  Today, work building God's kingdom, here and now, was done with joy.  

Over one hundred of our neighbors in need came to our Christmas In The Park outreach event at
Eucalyptus Park.  God's preparation was an overwhelming response of families of volunteers, parents, children, grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends.  The buffet of the Lord's Table included, 60 hamburgers donated by Halphen Red Burgers, roast turkey, ham, delicious side dishes, wonderful home-baked cookies, cupcakes, pies, and fresh fruit.  A large supply of material resources such as clothes, socks and shoes was available.  Our raffle for our guests and neighbors included toys for the children, blankets, sleeping bags, tents and the grand prizes of 3 bicycles, all donated by our generous volunteers.  

And as fantastic as all the physical blessings were, the Lord provided our outreach event with talented musicians from the Nazarene Church and the Aspeytia family to share praise and worship. Our Church Without Walls-Chula Vista pastor from Set Free Ministries, Donny Burroughs gave the message of repentance and salvation.  Many of our children from the ministry performed various Christ-honoring performances to entertain the crowd.  God's love could been seen and felt throughout the event.  Two of our neighbors made the decision to accept God's grace and asked Christ to be the Lord and King of their life.  They took the next step to go into the East County Transitional Living Center program.  God continues to bless our ministry and our Church Without Walls Outreach.  Praise Father God for the gift of sending His son Jesus and the opportunity for us to share His gospel.

Doubling the Blessings!

With the recent launch of Church Without Walls - Spring Valley by our ministry partners, the Warriors4Christ Community Group from the Rock Church, we combined our outreach to include our neighbors from the Spring Valley outreach area with our event at Eucalyptus Park.  It truly was a table of Thanksgiving with the amount and variety of donated food, the feature item being BBQ'd marinated Tri-tip.  We are blessed to serve 50 of our neighbors in need with an abundance of food, blankets and clothing.  And as great as all the donations we had to offer, it is always the spiritual feeding that brings the greatest nourishment.  Praise and worship in songs and in dance performed by our youth was enjoyed by everyone.  A message of repentance and salvation was preached, followed up with fellowship, encouragement and prayers.

A Blessed Union

God continues to bless our ministry and those who serve in it.  Sharing Christ impacts lives and for Pastor Donnie and Bernie, a blessed union was made by the grace and mercy of God.  Our Church Without Walls had it first wedding in the park where we serve.  The guest list included family, friends and our neighbors who attend our ministry.  The ceremony was presided by Pastor Mark who leads the newly formed CWW in Spring Valley.  It was truly a joyous occasion for all who attended.

*Praise Report: Grace, who is a sister in Christ and attends CWW on Saturdays was blessed by a group of saints in the “Prayer Booth” who came together to provide a past due payment for her storage. She said they are the only things she has left being with out a job for 4 months now and struggling to keep her vehicle operating just in case she is called for an interview. She’s seeking a home base Church other than CWW. She has attended Cornerstone Church and the Rock Church since the Outreach.

Easter Outreach 2012 - Amazing Love!

posted Apr 9, 2012, 1:35 PM by Tee Letuligasenoa   [ updated Dec 23, 2016, 4:30 AM ]

Truly, the body of Christ came out to serve this Easter weekend.  Approximately 150 volunteers from 11 sponsoring organizations participated in serving 140 of our guests that attended the event, many of whom are struggling through economic hardship as well many who are our homeless neighbors within our community.  The various services offered by our grass-roots effort were free medical and dental screenings by instructor-led students from U.E.I. of Chula Vista, free haircuts and make-overs, free massages, free foot washing with a free pair of socks, free care packages, and access to free used clothing and canned goods.  A fresh, hot meal of hamburgers, hot dogs, corn dogs, salads, beans and various desserts was provided by generous donations.  The Vine Christian Church of Linda Vista provided a full children's ministry with arts and crafts, face painting and a jumper.  They also raffled off a brand new bike for one lucky child.  

Although the free services and food addressed the needs of the physical body, it was the Easter sermon provided by Pastor Oscar, Sr. Pastor of the Vine, which nourished our souls.  Praise and worship was provided by various worship teams including Pastor Sola and members of Nazarene Church, children from Gives Hope Ministry, youth from the Warriors4Christ, and Charles and his son Julian from the Rock Church.  Also from the Rock, the Island Praise dance troupe performed worship in the form of graceful hula.  A Prayer booth was also avaiable for those seeking prayer.  Pastor Donny, our regular Church Without Walls pastor, closed out our effort with a moving, Holy Spirit led call to the alter.


We recognize the success of this Easter outreach event was all due to the provisions of Father God and all for His glory.  We were blessed by the opportunity to serve and rewarded by the joy each us of felt in sharing God's love with others, especially those in need.  The leadership team would like to thank all those who served in the food service area, the foot washing booth, the hair cutting booth, the resource booths, the registration booth and the prayer booth.  Everything which was given away to those in need was provided by the generosity of all who donated.  When the leaders prayed to Father God for provision, you answered the call, again, thank you.
