Hello, I am not sure if this group is still active but I live in LA and am a Christian. I've been looking for some information on any church plants or home churches that are starting in the city proper. I live downtown. I graduated from seminary a year ago and have been looking for ways to serve and get involved.

I'm new

Hi! I just joined, and I'm not from LA,....BUT I'm planning on moving there when i graduate. Right now I'm a senior at Samford University, its a private christian college in Alabama. Last year, I felt God calling me to minister out in california. But honestly, I don't know what he wants me to do. I just feel that God has a ministry waiting for me. And what's really cool, when I met the guy who is now my boyfriend, he was telling me that he wants to move to L.A. when he graduated as well! He wants to act/write/direct movies. He wants to make sure all his movies have an underlying christian theme.

I hope you guys don't mind that I joined. I would like to get to know some of you, so when I move out there, I'll know some people and be able to find a good church.

First day on my new job...

So today was the first day at my new job working in Hollywood. Breaking my way into the business...On the road to getting discovered..yes, I am the new receptionist...
This was the big moment of the day. 4 years of college, 5 hours of training. And the phone rings.
"__name of company____ this is Jenny" I say in my professional phone voice that I've been practicing over the weekend.
"Hi Jenny, this is Kevin is Rob in?"
"Yes one second please." I frantically press buttons trying to find the owner of the company, Rob. When I couldn't locate him I have to go public and page him dramatically over the PA system for EVERYONE to hear. And by everyone I mean, my idol who edits Northern Exposure, the producers of My Big Fat Fiancee, the hot guy editing the Yoga video, and all the other randoms...
I do a little cough...press the buttons so Im over the speaker "Rob, you have a line on call one.." (then I think, oh wait I said that wrong..) then I laugh and say "ohhh crap" mumbled under my breathe..
Two minutes later northern exposure comes up "Call on line one, nice touch-and the laugh..good job"

So my big break into the business..my big first day at a real job...yeah, I didn't do that great..haha. But I did find it rather humorous.

Hope everyone had a great day. Trying to start coverstaion-does anyone else have funny/scary/random first day of work stories?
