About Facebook Live...
First, PLEASE INVITE your friends and family to WATCH! They can watch from anywhere - and seriously, it is the easiest way ever to come to church -from your couch! Post the link on Facebook and let God work.
Secondly, we want to share with you about the LEGALITY of live-streaming from church - to assure you it is permissible under the Stay-at-home order. The California Gov't AND the White House have specifically stated: "Faith based services that are provided through streaming or other technology" are ESSENTIAL! We are glad for our governments to recognize bringing HOPE in Jesus is essential to life in California! We continue to invite God to live in us as we LIVE TOGETHER SIX FEET APART.

40 Day Fast started March 4th
Each year at The Place, we invite everyone to participate in a 40 day fast prior to Easter. This year our fast began Wednesday, March 4th and concludes on Easter Sunday, April 12th.
The fast can take the form of ADDING something to your life - daily prayer, meditation, reading God's Word, kindness, acts of service, etc. Or, it can be a fast of REMOVING something in your life - diet, Daniel fast, sugar, video games, electronics, gossip, etc. The main thing is to SEEK God daily and invite God to move in a new way in your life.
We invite you to join us The Place by inviting God to work in your life in 2020. We will break our fast together on Easter Sunday. You can register at The Place or using this LINK: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/805044CAEAA28A7FE3-40day
