We are a non-denominational family of believers with a passion for our Lord Jesus Christ and have a commission to lead others to Him through:

  • Reaching our island community with the Good News of Jesus Christ.

  • Sunday Celebration as we worship our Lord and Savior in music and praise.

  • Sunday Fellowship as we are fed from the Living Water of God, His Holy Word.

  • Weekly in-depth teachings from the Bible for  those who thirst for a much deeper understanding of God's Word.

Our Senior Pastor, Jason Gant, teaches through the Bible each week, chapter-by-chapter, verse-by-verse, so that you may have a clear understanding of what God has to say to you about His love and the relationship He wishes to have with you.  In-home Bible studies in either English or Spanish anywhere on Catalina Island may be arranged by calling our church office.


We offer you an invitation to come and join us soon!

& Gospel of Mark, Chapter 12  —  Our study of Mark's Gospel continues with Chapter 12 of this fascinating account of the life and miracles of Jesus Christ.

Isn't it about time you make a connection with the One, True, Living God before it's too late?

Quick Take:  The Widow's Mite


Click On Photo Above To Learn More About The "Widow's Mite"


The "Widow’s Mite" is a bronze "prutah" (Hebrew for "small coin") of Alexander Jannaeus of the Hasmonian Dynasty, King of Judea from 103-76 B.C.  Because these "leptons" (Greek for "small coin"), or prutah, were the lowest denomination coin that circulated in Jerusalem during Christ’s lifetime,  they are believed to be the very same coins that He referred to in the Biblical story of the poor widow.


These coins were carelessly and crudely struck, usually off center and in small flans (irregular metal disks).  Legends are generally unreadable.  Actual size is less than ½ inch in diameter with a value today of about a cent and a half. Their value at the time of Jesus' ministry was 1/20 of a silver Denarius, a day's wage.  A single "mite" could purchase a small barley loaf of bread or a handful of fresh fruit.  The widow of the Gospels, therefore, basically gave the last of her grocery money, "all that she had," to the Lord.  What a sacrifice she made!
