The church office remains closed while we are in the Purple Tier. Also, our timeline for a return to indoor, in-person worship depends on the health conditions of the county. If you need any assistance, please call (626) 692-5751.

Checks can be made payable to MBCLA, Memo: Lottie Moon Offering, or through MBCLA’s online giving site throughout November and December. Lottie Moon Sunday is December 6.
MBCLA Missions Conference
Our annual church Missions Conference will be on December 4 at 7:30 pm. Our theme is “Church Planting: Here and There.” The message will be delivered by Dr. Dean Sieberhagen, Professor of Missions at Southwestern Baptist Seminary. Please pray for God to be glorified in this conference and our missions program. Ask God to show you your part, and join us that Friday. More details to follow.
Panel on Racial Reconciliation
Please join us in a very important panel discussion on racial injustice and reconciliation on Sunday, November 22, 2020 at 7:30-10:00pm. This discussion will take place between MBCLA brothers: Christian Hsu, Fitz Wilson, Glenn Boggs, and Kris Tu, and will be moderated by Samuel Chuang. Hear a closely personal conversation within our church family about the current socio-political movements surrounding racial injustice and police reform within our nation and listen to how the Gospel of Christ unites us and heals all divisions. There will be a live Q&A period following the panel. Register for the event at https://bit.ly/mbclapanelracism.
Chinese Mission Convention 2020
Online, December 28-30
The good news of Jesus Christ is timeless but the methods of sharing the good news may change. For this reason, CMC 2020 is a timely opportunity to learn how we might personally and effectively share the good news today. It features speakers such as David Platt and Francis Chan. More information on the convention can be found here: https://bit.ly/CMC2020eng
We encourage you to join this year’s convention. MBCLA is registering as a group so there will be no cost to you to join. If you are interested, please contact Victor Hsiao at firstname.lastname@example.org by November 30 for a group code. You will use this code when you register in lieu of payment.
