9:30am Traditional Sabbath School
11:00am Worship Service
7:00pm Prayer Meeting
The Spanish Group was founded 17 years ago and began as just a Sabbath School program. On May 5, 2001, the group met for the first time offering a full service in a pentecostal church loaned to us by the help of brother Juan Neira, a lay pastor. Currently, it meets in the preschool room at Simi Valley Seventh-day Adventist Church.
As the group grew, it saw the need for a second service, since a good number of attendees spoke little to no English. While lay pastor, Ignacio Sevilla, preaches regularly, the group also invites other people to preach, men and women alike.
Look for information regarding the upcoming evangelistic meetings featuring Pastor Dan Robles, coming soon!
