Record Breaking VBS Attendance

Last Week our Super Hero Vacation Bible School catered to a record-breaking full house of excited and engaged children. We were also blessed by an impressively large gaggle of creative and dedicated helpers of all ages. Thank you... and major blessings... to everyone who contributed... decorating & preparing, teaching & herding, tear-down & cleanup. You are an inspiration! (Click on the photo for a hi-res version.)

Celebrating Scholarship to Cal Lutheran

You may recall Pastor Dan recently informing Sunday morning congregants that there was a purpose in his noticeably shaggy hair: He had promised David Hall that he would grow a man-bun if David chose to attend Cal Lutheran from among the prestigious schools on his application list.

Not only did David choose Cal Lutheran... he earned a 4-year scholarship as well. Congratulations to both of you.

Home Groups Resume Week of Sept 10-15

We have an outstanding 9-week study of the Book of Ephesians using an outstanding video-based course from RightNow Media. Ephesians is considered by many scholars to be the most concise, theologically rich book in the Bible. Paul tells us everything we need to know and believe about the Gospel and the difference it makes in our lives. It's also a survival manual for Christians living in a world that hates the message of Jesus Christ.

We're sure you'll find this to be a rich and rewarding study. Click here for more information about Home Groups.  Registration Will Begin July 30.

NOTE: Our "Down the Hill" group that meets in and around Poway launches early on Tuesday, July 25 at 6:00 pm. They accommodate busy professional schedules by varying their meeting dates & times to maximize participation. For more information, contact Joan Brown at
