This year we will be reading in the Gospels, corresponding to Pastor Ron's Sunday messages. Each Sunday we'll put the following weeks Scripture passages in the bulletin. You can also follow along using 'The One-Year Chronological Bible'. (We can guarantee that the New Living Translation's passages correspond to our listed readings. Others may also, but not all do.) This the easiest way to do the readings.
Because supplies are running low at the ATCAA warehouse (where we are normally able to pick up food for our Food Closet) extra donations are currently needed. Any non-perishable food items which can be donated ot the Food Closet would be greatly appreciated.

It will take place at a gourmet hamburger dinner served by the church's youth. There is no charge, but donations are appreciated to help scheduling future camps.

The Food Closet is open the Friday following the third Tuesday every month. Donations of canned items, personal hygiene products, and household cleaning items are always appreciated. If you would care to donate any of these items, they can be left in the kitchen or call us and we will arrange to get them from you.
We can't thank the members of this congregation enough for their continued generosity and their donations of food and funds for the Food Closet, and we so appreciate our many faithful and hard-working volunteers. The Lord has truly blessed this ministry.
Two members of our church family are collecting and redeeming aluminum cans and California redemption value plastic bottles and giving proceeds to GEFC. If you'd like to make donations contact Mike Buckley or Dick Faux (phone numbers available via the church office). You can drop items at their homes.
We are not collecting these items at the church, but if you wish to make a vehicle-to-vehicle transfer on Sunday morning, call Mike ahead and time and set up an appointment.
