Beacon of Light

Beacon of Light is celebrating 25 years of being a bright light for our youth in Orange County, CA, we have reached 100,000+ students with prevention education regarding risky sexual behaviors. Planned Parenthood supplies most of the state’s required curriculum on subjects such as STD’s, birth control, pornography, gender dysphoria and other explicit topics. Beacon of Light’s alternative, state-compliant curriculum shines a bright light on the TRUTH that Sex is a BIG DEAL with the goal of preventing life-long emotional and physical consequences of having sex at a young age.

Grace In Action

This year as a church family, we are looking for ways to serve locally. This trimester, we are focused on the vulnerable. We have various ways and different levels of engagement for everyone to help out. We are looking to get everyone involved in big and small ways from meeting the house parents at our open house, to helping pack boxes for Children’s Hunger Fund, helping run a camp for former foster youth in January and building a church in Mexico after Easter. Most of these (except the events at the Bridge Shelter) are family friendly, so please make arrangements and look to be apart of GRACE IN ACTION!

The culture is speaking to our kids. Every. Single. Day. 

Gender identity. Homosexuality. Porn. Casual sex. Consumerism. Affluence. Substance abuse. Social media. Entertainment. Racial tension. Secularism. Most youth are NOT ready for these conversations. 

How can our youth be salt and light in this hostile secular culture? By knowing and proclaiming God’s truth, pursuing and living out His goodness and creating beauty that points back to Jesus.  

Help raise up a new up a new generation of confident and courageous Christ-followers.

Teen Leadership Foundation

Youth in the foster care system are some of the most vulnerable members of our county. Left to fend for themselves at age 18, these youth emancipate out of the government system with little to no advantage. Together through our partnership with the Grace community, we seek to support foster youth by providing a safe runway into adulthood using our housing, mentoring, and employment readiness programs. We invite you to continue alongside TLF in 2024, providing a new beginning for at-risk youth.
