Our Church Plant – Circles of Grace

Here is a place to get info on our new church expression — Circles of Grace — in the greater Long Beach/Lakewood area. We are excited that the Lord has called the Jentes family to spearhead this effort. You can contact Mike Jentes at [email protected] or at 714 -3three0 -632O.


Sunday Gathering

This Sunday August 18th at 10:30am we will circle up together at Heartwell Park (across the Street from 5600 Parkcrest St. LB, CA 90808 between Bellflower and Woodruff on the Parkcrest side of the park (click link for our spot!)).

Bring your lawn chair, a dish to share for a picnic and your Bible! We are looking forward to what the Lord has been doing in us together! We will pick up in our journey through the book of Acts, with chapter 23!

After our time sharing with one another, we will also share a potluck lunch together. Bring a dish to share, we will provide paper products and some drinks. Feel free to head on to your day as you need, but make some time to enjoy one another for lunch and beyond as well!

Group Study on Jesus’ Life in our 6th Week!

You can join, but you have to let us know right away!

Walking as Jesus Walked is for a small groups of individuals who have a desire to study the life of Christ and go deeper in understanding what the Scriptures mean in 1 John 2:6 when it says, “Whoever claims to live in Him must walk as Jesus did.” We have a handful of people in this study for the coming weeks. Check out the website for more details and let Mike know ASAP if you would like to participate in this study over the next 10 weeks. To be clear on Sundays we will continue in the book of Acts, this is an additional study. We will gather for our discussion prior to our regular gathering at 9:45am on Sundays.

  • We value an authentic and loving relationship with God.
  • We believe that people are the priority, because they are unique and special to God.
  • We believe the Bible, God’s love letter, is the actual Word of God to the human race.
  • We value an expanding network of authentic and loving relationships with people, so we can care for one another well.
  • We believe in life transformation–a super-natural moving from where you are to being all God wants you to be.
  • We value GlobaLocal mission— that is, local and global sending— to reach pockets of people in SoCal and all over the global village.
  • We believe in the multiplication of disciples, leaders, churches, and communities.

Grow During the Week!

We are about following Jesus and doing it together. What’s your plan to grow closer to God during the week?

We encourage tools like Life Transformation Groups, 33 Things that Happen at the Moment of Salvation, Bible Reading Plans and other Bible Studies. We have the above tools and even a Bible for you if you don’t have one! Let us know how we can help you- email
