San Bernardino Residents Find Support In Local Church
Centerpoint Church, located in Colton, Ca. has reached out and seen a growth in attendence from neighboring city San Bernardino. Only 3 miles away from the City of San Bernardino the Colton church continues to see increase in attendance.
In a continuing effort by Centerpoint Colton (formerly Colton First Baptist), a non-denominational church located in Colton, Ca., the church reaches out to other cities that are close by.
One of those cities is the city that filed for bankruptcy earlier this year San Bernardino. "When a city is struggling financially..."
It is for that reason that Pastor Aaker created a specific outreach program for residents of the City of San Bernardino. The program is designed to reach out to the community of San Bernardino and it's residents and offer support, encouragement and a place to come in difficult times.
"We try to be aware of what is happening in our Inland area..." explains Pastor Aaker, "...and we felt that the people of San Bernardino perhaps could use some support and encouragement in these difficult economic times."
Centerpoint Church has missions that serve around the world and has a congregation of over 1000 people. The church has 5 services every Sunday and serves a lot of people.
"People come first" says Aaker "In this case they just happen to be our neighbors."
