PASTOR GARY HAS BEGUN A NEW SERMON SERIES titled THE BOOK OF BOOKS. We are looking at the reasons that the Bible is so enduring, and examining its main themes. Perhaps it will force us to reexamine our traditional interpretations and biases along the way. Today is part 2 in the series.

PATHFINDER REGISTRATION IS TODAY! If you are planning to attend the Oshkosh Camporee next summer or are still considering it, you will not want to miss the “All About Oshkosh” meeting taking place immediately after the worship service today.

IT’S ALMOST ADVENTURER TIME! Adventurer Registration for kids ages 4-10 will take place next Sabbath, September 1. The fee is $40 for the first child and $35 for each additional sibling. Come register, pick up your t-shirt, and get ready to jump-start another fun year!

THE ADVENTIST FORUM’S “50th Anniversary” Conference will be held at La Sierra University September 14-16. For full program details, visit https://spectrummagazine.org/conference2018. The SDAF will reimburse its members the full cost of registration. Please send a copy of your registration to sdaf.org@gmail.com.

THE BIANNUAL RUMMAGE SALE benefiting Friendships for Hope will take place September 2-4 from 8 am-4 pm at the Paradise Valley Community Services Building (2801 E 8th Street, National City).

OPERATION SAFEHOUSE is an emergency shelter for homeless youth in crisis. They are in need of new bed linens and we want to help! If you would like to donate, please place your donation in a tithe envelope and specify Helping Hands Fund on the envelope.

THE VOCAL ENSEMBLE wants YOU to join us for our next performance. If you are interested, please see Ritchie Carbajal after the service. Our first rehearsal will be on September 8.

THE INTERNATIONAL PATHFINDER CAMPOREE IN OSHKOSH, WI is one year away! There are many ways in which you’ll be able to show your support for our Club in their fundraising efforts this year. One of which is the Harvest Festival taking place on Sunday, October 28.
