Dear Church Family

I am still flying high from last Sunday's service. God spoke through Adam's Road in a powerful way. Several of you shared after the service how much their words encouraged you to share the gospel with other people. Pray for their ministry-Share the gospel-invite someone to worship with you!

We are getting ready to brag on God each Sunday as you share how God is providing for you. This can be in so many ways. One person told me they are planning to share how God has provided for some healing in their lives. Another, how God has provided their living arrangement when they couldn't afford living where they are. Another God provided a material blessing- a financial blessing- a health blessing and I want our church to understand how God is working in our midst. So, be ready to testify (brag) on what God is doing in your life. It will be encouraging to each of us! This is not a look at ME but a look at how great a God we have.

Many of you are finishing Reading the Bible Through this year. Keep up the work. If you are way behind-either turn it into a two year challenge or read 3 chapters a day and just finish the New Testament. Start in Matthew and read three chapters and you should be able to finish the New Testament by Dec 31st- The goal is to stay in His word-and grow.

Plan to attend our annual meeting on Oct 7th . Following the morning worship time we will go to the gym for our annual Chili Cook-off and then we will stay for our meeting. This is always a good time together. We will be rejoicing in God's provision financially; how God has blessed Sequoia Christian Preschool; and the direction for this next year. Plan to be a part of this important meeting.

See you Sunday

Pastor Mark

Dear SHBC

What a great service we had with Adam's Road this past Sunday. I hope everyone was challenged and encouraged to know the Bible and to share the truth of the Bible with others!! The students are looking forward and planning for the Ignition Student Conference in Ontario, CA. The conference will be during Christmas Break December 27-29th. The cost is going to be $200 per person plus money for 6 fast food meals. To sign up you must turn in a $20 non-refundable deposit to Pastor Dan. The price increases at the end of October so please turn in your deposits to lock in your cost by Sunday, October 21st.

This year's summer World Changers trip will be to Medford, Oregon. A $60 non-refundable deposit will be due for all participants Sunday, January 13th.

We will be doing two fundraisers to help the students raise money for Ignition and World Changers between now and January (we will have another fundraiser in March, but the deposits will have already been turned in!!). The first will be a Work-a-Thon. The students should be calling you or talking to you either after the service on Sunday's or during the week to ask if you would like to sponsor them either a flat donation or a per hour donation. We will be working 7 hours on Saturday, October 6th. The other fundraiser will be the Chili Cookoff Sunday, October 7th following the morning service. There will be containers on the tables that you can put any donations in. Please do NOT feel obligated to give to this, we just want you to be aware of what the students will be doing.

On Wednesday nights we have been working our way through Exodus and it has been exciting!! If you haven't read through Exodus in a while there are some interesting, amazing, and uncomfortable things. Needless to say we have had some great discussion!

Please keep the students in your prayers as they work to live and speak for Christ on their campuses, in their homes, and everywhere else God puts them!

Thanks

See you all on Sunday

Pastor Dan
