Train for the L.A. Marathon with World Vision
Interested in running a marathon? Would you like to support a great cause and get in shape at the same time? Then training with Team World Vision to run the L.A. Marathon is your answer! This weekend we will have a representative from Team World Vision share the opportunity you will have to make a difference in many lives by running for clean water in Africa. Come to The Place this Sabbath to hear more.
Small Group time
If you have not yet had the opportunity to sign up for a small group or discipleship group, we would LOVE for you and your family to be able to do that. The discipleship groups are for only 12 WEEKS! That's it...really! It is a tremendous opportunity to grow deeper in Jesus and learn how to disciple/mentor a child or young person or your whole family. Please let Pastor Simon or Ben Seifert know if you would like to join a group...or if you have any questions. For those who can't make a small group during the week, Chad Cannon and Pastor Simon will be leading a discipleship group during Sabbath School. You can sign up at church for one of our many small groups.
