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.

God filled the world with a lot of crazy creatures... including you! When kids feel weird, different, or even lost in a crowd - nothing compares to the extraordinary love of Jusus.
Registration begins soon. See Miriam Martin for more details, or if you can help.
on Saturday morning, May 31, we'll be having our next Pastor's class. This is an opportunity for people to become familiar wiht the vision and values of GEFC. It's a requirement for membership, although participants will not be pressured to join the church. It starts at 8:30am with a great breakfast and goes to about noon. There is no charge. If you'd like to know more, please call Pam at the office.
we will be once again gathering at Bob and Judy McKinnon's place for our annual Church picnic on Sunday, June 1 folling the combined service. Plese plan to bring a salad or dessert to share, your own drinks, meat to bbq, table service and chairs to sit on.
Head east on Hwy 120 (toward Yosemite) to Hells Hollow Road and follow the signs from there. We'll start shortly after our ...
Plan to be in the Sanctuary at 10:00am (June 1) for an always popular combining of both services, first and second. (If you show up at 9:30, you are early. There is no second service; if you show up at 11am, you are late!)
There will be a Quilt Show plans for our next quilt show have begun. If you are interested and willing to serve in the areas of crafts, teh soup luncheon, bake sale, decorating, or working the dayt of the quilt show, pleas contact Sally Copeland, Judy McKinnon, or Carol Willmon at the church. .
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.
