Wednesday, August 19  * Mendocino Presbyterian Church

 
 
You shall raise up the foundations of many generations; you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorerof streets to live in."  (Isaiah 58:12).  On Wednesday, August 19, Charlie and Martie Elgin, the co-founders of Pathfinder Mission in Waveland, Mississippi, will be visiting the Mendocino Coast.  They will be the guests of the many local volunteers from churches in Fort Bragg, Mendocino, Comptche and Albion.  Many members from the above churches have travelled to Waveland every year since the devastation caused by Katrina in 2005.  Under Charlie's direction, these men and women have helped to rebuild houses, as well as lives.  As Charlie often says, "With the devastaton came a great opportunity for Christians to leave the pew and to 'put their hand to the plow.'  It's a God-ordained "kairos" moment."  The Elgins will share their experience with God's call to assist the people ot Waveland following Katrina.  Fours years after Katrina, the need for volunteers is still vitally important.  These faith-based volunteers are the only ones remaining to help the forgotten victims in Mississippi.  Please go to the Mendocino Presbyterian Church to listen and to support the Elgins in their calling to serve what might have been a forgotten community.

Pathfinder mission

Seventeen members representing six congregations in Fort Bragg, Mendocino and Comptche travelled to Waveland Mississippi to rebuild lives and houses of Katrina victims. Waveland was "Ground Zero" where Katrina made landfall in August 2005, creating a 30 foot surge of water, which literally washed away the community. The group worked on five projects with Pathfinder mission (www.pathfindermission.org). The work included Building a ramp for a fifteen year old girl with cancer who also suffered a stroke,  Finishing  interior drywall for a family who had been ripped off by a corrupt contractor .Laying laminate flooring for a single Mom who also had her building funds stolen by a contractor. Repairing Electrical wiring messed up by well meaning friends of the owner and strengthening support beams of a raised structure. The greatest tasks performed were sharing the love of Jesus with the homeowners and members of the community of Waveland and giving hope to the ones feeling Hope-less. The need is great in Mississippi as all recovery agencies have pulled out and only a few "faith based " organizations are left to help these forgotten Americans. Their gratitude to volunteers is shown by hugs and thanks wherever we went. We will be heading back again next April and invite all who want to be Blessed to join us.
The Mendocino coast Christian men's fellowship  will meet Saturday April 25th.
Men from the various congregations and Christian groups in Fort Bragg, Mendocino, Albion and Comptche get together on the last Saturday of each month. The event is hosted by a different Church and this month it is hosted by the men of Mendocino Presbyterian Church in Mendocino.
The topic will be  "Sharing our experiences", The men of MPC. will share about their extremely rich time of fellowship and Bible study. Leadership changes with  each chapter allowing for the Christian growth of each man in this group.
Before hearing from the speakers there will be time for fellowship, music and delicious food.
Mendocino Presbyterian Church is located on Main Street in the village of Mendocino.

Hi all,
 
Saturday October 25th. the men of Chapel of the Redwoods in Compche will be hosting the monthly men's breakfast. The guest speaker will be Rev. Dick Coolidge.
 
Dick Coolidge

Dick was born in the Imperial Valley in 1917, after high school, during the height of the depression; he hopped a freight train to Nashville to enroll at Madison College. In 1945, with a wife and four young children, he was drafted into the army, only to be released later when Japan surrendered. During the following years in an effort to run from God's call to preach, he attempted six different businesses and employments. While each endeavor succeeded financially, God gave him a restless spirit which he could not shake until 1948, when he surrendered to the call of ministry. While Pastoring near Nashville, Dick wrote and directed the Easter Passion Play, which is still performed in Comptche after all these years.

In 1954 he hoped to enter Seminary, but was diagnosed with melanoma cancer and told that he had just two years to live. Dick's response was "If I've got only two years left, I'm not going to spend it in school. I have got to preach!" And preach he did, from Tennessee to Florida to California.
Dick and his wife Charlotte established the Chapel of the Redwoods in Comptche in 1979 and shortly after began to build the Church facilities. In 1984 he established a program for World Hunger, encouraging church members to take home a hollow bread loaf and drop in 25 cents daily. Many Southern Baptist Churches now contribute to this program. At the age of 88 Dick retired as Pastor, but continues to preach the good news of salvation whenever he is asked.
 
We are so blessed to have an opportunity to hear a beloved Mendocino coast Evangelist who has devoted his life to bring many to fellowship with Christ.
 
Breakfast starts at 7-30 am.
Bring a friend!
 
Before hearing Dick's inspirational testimony there will be time for fellowship, music and good food.
 
 Chapel of the Redwoods is located at 31201 Compche/ Ukiah road in Compche

The guest speaker will be John Turnbull. - Saturday - May 26 - 7 AM
In April John spent seven days in Waveland Mississippi repairing homes devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Waveland and Bay St Louis are the two towns where Katrina made landfall and the high winds and storm surge of 30 feet washed away entire neighborhoods.Over 230,000 homes severely damaged of which 70,000 were completely destroyed.Twenty months later the area is still struggling to rebuild. The people have been forgotten by the media and thus the rest of the country.Suicide, alcohol and drug abuse,spousal and child abuse have increased dramatically and the locals seem to be giving up. John volunteered with his son and son in law to assist "Pathfinder Mission" a ministry established by Charley and Martie Elgin, The Elgins saw a great need after the storm for storage pods for people living in cramped FEMA trailers. These pods were delivered with a bible and a caring hug. Hundreds of Pods were assembled and distributed by volunteers from Churches all over the USA. Now the Elgins mission is to help families to rebuild their homes to a Secure, Safe and Sanitary condition to enable them to move out of the FEMA trailers providing free labor and sometimes materials if the family cannot afford them . A sign "Katrina was big but God is bigger" really moved me, said John, "I was angered so little is being done for these forgotten people, I know God has not forgot them with Christian ministries like Pathfinder who are helping needy families "one at a time" to rebuild their lives and dreams." Go hear the rest of the story how volunteers not only change lives of others but their lives are changed also.
 
"Every man is a minister,every minister has a ministry, every ministry has a mission."

MCCM Men's Retreat 2007

 

Calling All Men !!!!
The Mendocino Christian Men's Fellowship
Saturday - February 24th - 7:30 @ Grace Community Church
Tim Stoen's Testimony

 

Currently, Deputy District Attorney for Mendocino County; supervisor of DA's Coast Office past 13 months; Wheaton College graduate in political science; graduate of Stanford Law School; 41 years practicing law; former prosecutor for Humboldt County and for City and County of San Francisco; past attorney for the Mendocino Defense Committee; argued case before California Court of Appeal opening public access to Navarro Beach; current member of the Mendocino Presbyterian church; favorite subjects are history and theology; married ten years to Swedish widow, Kersti; love hiking Coast trails; subject of talk: "My Spiritual Journey."

 Became radicalized as attorney for the Black Panther party in 1969; joined People's Temple in 1970 to bring about a model utopia based on total economic and racial equality; was attorney for the People's Temple and Jim Jones from 1970 to 1977, becoming a socialist; helped establish Jonestown in 1973; lived there in 1977 with my five-year old son, John Victor, working in a sawmill; left the movement on a trip to the U.S. upon discovering Jones's abuses; obtained court order for return of John Victor; went to Guyana to enforce the court order, where life was threatened; predicted, in court papers, Jones's willingness to massacre the people in Jonestown three months before it happened; in November 1978 went to Guyana with Congressman Leo Ryan, but Jones refused me entrance on the plane going into the jungle where Jonestown was located. Jones orchestrated the assassination of Ryan and four news reporters, and then the deaths of  910 human beings in his own movement, including John Victor, age six.
 
After these deaths I went into depression and deep anger towards God. In 1984 returned to Ukiah to face the music, where there was intense hostility to me for "leading the community down the primrose path regarding Jim Jones." Returned to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord in 1991. Had to make choice whether would be haunted by my huge past mistakes or would accept God's forgiveness, allowing me to fight for justice despite my past and what people might say. Am 69 now, and by God's grace am blessed beyond words with a loving wife and good health. Am currently reading Dallas Willard's wonderful book, The Divine Conspiracy, and want to be a true apprentice of Jesus for the rest of my life.
