2022 EUROPEAN GOSPEL TRIP

Since the war in Ukraine began on February 24, 2022, more than 4 million Ukrainian and foreign refugees have fled, mainly into countries in eastern Europe. The United Nations has stated that this is the largest movement of people in Europe since World War II, even surpassing the migration of the Middle Eastern refugees to Germany in 2016. Based on our experience in 2016, we wish to seize this opportunity for the gospel and the strengthening of the churches in Europe. 

 Poland has received the bulk of the refugees, and very large numbers have gone to other countries. Many have entered through Slovakia, Hungary, and Romania and either remained or continued onward to Vienna, which has become a major transit hub for access to other destinations. 

The registration of the gospel trip team is now closed.  The two other ways to participate in this move is to pray and to give.

Please review the notification from NorCal churches:

The Living Stream Ministry has encouraged the churches to blend together for the upcoming Memorial Day Conference (May 27-30).  To facilitate blending, we will conduct a NorCal-wide Memorial Day Conference via Zoom.  The messages will be watched live according to the schedule of the in-person meetings in Anaheim.  After each message there will be a time for prophesying in breakout rooms.  The messages will be live-streamed in English, Chinese, Spanish, Korean, and Russian.

NOTE: Since the Lord’s Day morning message begins at 10:00 AM, localities will need to schedule their Lord’s Table meeting earlier or at another time.  Some localities may choose to keep their regular Lord’s Day morning meetings and watch message 4 at a later time.  Message 4 will be available on the Archive page approximately 2 hours after the live message has completed.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS:

  1. All zoom links for the various languages can be accessed at the following page: 2022 Memorial Day Conference – Northern California Churches (norcalchurches.org)

  3. Outlines for the messages will be available at live.lsmwebcast.com and also at the NorCal conference webpage on 5/24.

JULY SEMIANNUAL TRAINING
  • Subject: Crystallization Study of First and Second Kings
  • July 4-9, 2022
  • Anaheim, CA. We encourage all the saints to attend in person if possible, for the training is now open to all the saints.
  • Registration is required. Further information is available through Living Stream Ministry. Please contact register@lsm.org.
  • Registration deadline: May 8, 2022

Dear saints,

The brothers from Northern California are happy to announce that this  July Semiannual Video Training Schedule will once again be for all NorCal localities similar to the December Semiannual Training, this is a training where all the saints and churches in Northern California could be blended together in practicality.

After much fellowship, attached is the proposed NorCal-wide schedule for the July Semiannual Video Training.

Please note the following concerning this schedule:

  • The video training begins on Monday (July 4) with two meetings, the same as the live training, since most saints have the day off.
  • To accommodate many localities’ local meeting schedules, no meetings are on Lord’s Day morning, Tuesday night, or Friday night.
  • In keeping with LSM requirements, the schedule includes a mandatory study time immediately following each message, so the other study times listed are not mandatory. This is to give saints who must work the opportunity to participate in this training without loss of work time. We have tried our best to keep each training session within two hours, including testing for about 15 minutes before the message and the mandatory study time afterwards.
  • There are two open meetings: one for Message 1 (Monday afternoon, July 4) and one for Message 12 (Saturday evening, July 16).
  • We plan to have blending across the NorCal churches for fellowship and testing wherever possible.
