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.
Outreach Day, Wednesday September 28th!!
Come on down to the church around 6:30pm this Wednesday armed with some sturdy shoes and a pair of gloves if you have them (If not, come anyways and we will give you a pair!) Sponsored by our youth, we are going to tackle some clean up around our property and our neighborhood. Don't worry, there will be no heavy machinery involved. Just good old fashioned hands and garbage bags, and willing souls who desire to show our property and our neighbors the love of Jesus!
Senior Luncheon! October 8th!
Come join us in the Jones Building at 12:30 pm for food and fellowship on Saturday, October 8th. We will enjoy lunch, a couple fun games, and spend time together in prayer for our families, friends, church, and neighborhood. There are no age qualifications: Anyone who considers themselves a senior is more than welcome.
Please sign-up on the sheet at the welcome desk!
If you have any questions, please contact Janelle Maher.
Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes-
Time to get packing!!!
It’s that wonderful time of the year again to pack shoeboxes to send to boys and girls around the world, sharing with them the love of the Father and the good, good news of the Gospel. Last year our church packed and sent out 275– 275!!- shoeboxes! The church has some of the foldable cardboard boxes if you would like, or you are welcome to wrap shoeboxes or similar-sized plastic totes.
More information about an all-church shoebox packing party on November 2nd – save the date!- will be available soon! Watch the next few weeks for more information on ideas of what to pack and testimonies of how God has used simple shoeboxes to introduce His love and hope to more than a million children and their families! We will dedicate the shoeboxes on Sunday, November 6th.
Below are some pictures of our happy volunteers who helped deliver all 275 shoeboxes from our church to the drop-off center in Martinez! Let's aim for 300 this year, and praise God for all that He will do in the lives of children, families and communities through the gift of shoeboxes and the Gospel!
