News!! News!! News!!







There is soooooooooooo much going on that I thought I'd just write and share a little about a lot. First, the REVIVAL... It was and continues to be a SPIRITUAL HIGH. I have never been in a week-long meeting where you could sense and feel the POWER of God moving in such a mighty way. From the worship to the messages to the people walking down the aisles during the invitation time, it was a HEAVENLY ATMOSPHERE with lives being transformed by the power of God.

Then last weekend, my father, H. Dean Rutherford hit it out of the ballpark. At 77, he is still one of the best communicators in the country. He is funny, Biblical, relational and always "brings it" when he preaches the Word. We are so blessed to have been able to hear him preach from time to time. Please continue to keep him in your prayers, asking God to give him many more years of good health and blessing.

Next, I am pleased to announce that we now have an iPhone app for www.callonjesus.com. Today, it has 4 major elements that are all a way to boost your knowledge and growth in the Lord:
1) You get a video of the weekend's sermon uploaded to your phone EACH and EVERY weekend. 2) You get the complete devotional book, Romancing Royalty.
3) You get the ENTIRE Bible added to your phone, and
4) You get a Bible reading guide that is the BEST in the country, plus 52 videos that help explain what you're reading.

You can go to the iTunes app store and just search for "Call On Jesus" to find it, and DRUMROLLLLLLL... it's also available on all the Google ANDROID phones as well. You also have the ability to forward the videos to your friends and family. This is really a GREAT resource for you to have 24/7 through your iPhones and android phones. All you Blackberry users out there, we are working on having this available for you in the near future.

Next, as you know, my 13 year old daughter is in 8th grade, and I am coaching her and the middle school girls at Hillcrest Christian School, and I would LOVE to have you come watch one of our games. We only have a few left. Here's the remaining schedule:
- Tuesday October 27th at 3:30 PM, we play against Villiage Christian School at Hillcrest School
- Thursday, October 29th at 5:15 PM, we play at Faith Baptist High School
- Monday, November 2nd at 6:00 PM, we play against Los Angeles Baptist at Hillcrest School
- Thursday, November 5th at 3:30 PM, we play Milken at Hillcrest School
These girls are good, and I hope you'll join us.

Lastly, I have never been MORE encouraged about all that God is doing in our midst. Let's continue to serve and love the Lord with all of our hearts. May we all be involved in a Life! Group, and may we share our faith with those who do NOT know Jesus. Find a place to serve at Shepherd and remember that Jesus is coming back soon.

In love,
Pastor Dudley
