PASTOR GARY BEGINS A NEW SERMON SERIES TODAY titled THE BOOK OF BOOKS. We will look at the reasons that the Bible is so enduring, and examine its main themes. And perhaps we will be forced to reexamine our traditional interpretations and biases.

PATHFINDER REGISTRATION AND AN “ALL ABOUT OSHKOSH” meeting will take place immediately after Church next Sabbath, August 25. If you are planning to attend Oshkosh or are considering it, you will not want to miss this meeting. Come let us know your plans for attending and get all your questions answered.

FREE VESPERS CONCERT at Paradise Village this Friday, August 24, at 7 pm. Presented by Josh De Senna and Mia Rosado.
