Family Fellowship Construction Dinner

Our gala Family Fellowship Construction Dinner last Sunday evening was a resounding success. The Spirits of Grace, under the able leadership of Patty Payne, did a fantastic job of decorating with a "construction" theme. Everyone had hard hats and the feeling of moving forward with our new church facility was strong. The ladies also had a well-stocked baked potato bar and hearty dirt cupcakes for dessert. After musical entertainment John Boruff got us down to business of helping us decide how to support the building program with our own pledges and offerings.

Where do we stand? See below.

Victory Celebration May 3

In all these things we are more than conquerors (to be completely and overwhelmingly victorious) through him who loved us. (Romans 8:37 NIV)

This single-service Sunday worship, May 3, at 9:00am will celebrate our Victory in Christ, in all circumstances. (To see what we mean, take time to read verses 38-39. For that matter, read the entire Chapter 8 of Romans. You'll be glad you did.)

We will also bring our First Fruits offerings as we mark the beginning of our three-year pledge period, after which we'll reveal our total pledges and cash offerings to date. Did we reach our victory goal? Come and find out.

Spirit of Joy in the News

It came to our notice that some have not yet seen the April 9 article in the Ramona Sentinel about our Capital Campaign. Click on the picture or click here to read the article.

The article describes our Ramona Gateway Enhancement Fund and crowd funding and paints an exciting future for that iconic Ramona Gateway corner.

You Can Help!

You can make an important contribution to our church mission by praying for and contributing to these needs:

  • We have two altar flower arrangements every Sunday which can be sponsored in honor or memory or celebration of someone or something special in your life. Please contribute $25 for one or $45 for both.
  • All year long we are grateful for your donations of paper goods and related items for the kitchen & bathrooms at the church, including paper towels, tissues, toilet paper, paper plates, coffee cups, drinking cups, plastic utensils, even coffee. You can save your receipt and turn it in to the office to receive credit on your annual statement of giving for tax purposes.
  • Prayer list changes can be written on the copy from your bulletin and placed in the offering plate (we update the list every week).

Thank you for helping!
