Interim Pastor Hired– Pastor Jeff Purganan
The Board is very pleased to announce that the church will be blessed to have Pastor Jeff Purganan serve as Interim Pastor for the next few months. Pastor Jeff has preached several times over the past few months. He currently lives in the South Bay, where he pastored in Cupertino and then Sunnyvale. He now presides over the Possibility Project– a unique, innovative program on our District that is equipping young adults for engagement in ministry. Jeff will be partnering with the staff and the Board over the next few months to help encourage and support our church through this transition time, and he will be preaching most Sundays. Please pray for God’s blessing over Pastor Jeff, his wife Meredith and their two daughters. We are very grateful for the love and care they have shown our church body.

On September 18th we will gather together at 10 am for brunch in the foyer and then in the sanctuary for worship at 11 am.
Please note, there will be NO Sunday School
Classes on September 18th..

Alabaster Offering- Sunday, September 25th
Believe it or not, it is time again to plan for Alabaster Offering on Sunday, September 25th! Twice a year the church receives a special offering that goes towards expanding the Kingdom of God through land and buildings– from church buildings to medical clinics to schools to housing for missionaries. Modeled off scripture found in Matthew 26:6-13, we pour out our love for Christ in tangible ways that will help spread the Gospel far and wide. We can provide you with a box for coins if needed, but we also encourage paper giving via dollars and checks! Simply mark “Alabaster” on your offering envelope and place it in the offering any Sunday or in the Alabaster box on the 25th.
