Dear Sequoia Faith Family,
I am so excited to be a member of this body of believers. It is great when we come together and rejoice over God's goodness and blessings. To see Ronda give such a God-honoring testimony of His greatness in her life was over the top. We baptized Jayson Weaver and we are going to baptize 3 more this Sunday-Thank you Jesus!
When you see God working it is your invitation from God, to join Him in what He is doing. Where do you see God working?
It is good to be back in the swing of things at our church. It is also a good time to start something new. If you are not involved in a Bible Study I want to invite you to join one. This is the BEST way to meet with peers-build friendships-and connect with people who are also seeking a deeper walk with God. Our Sunday Studies meet at 8:45am. Our Wednesday activities begin at 5:30pm with a dinner. Come and be a part of the Church.
See you Sunday
Welcome Aaron Sutherland our new Maintenance Tech! Almost a month ago Mike Halleck resigned as our custodian after serving the Lord and our church for 20 plus years. Thank you, Mike, for a job well done. On that same day Aaron Sutherland was looking for a job. Aaron had done a lot of work for us over the previous month so we were familiar with his work ethic. After changing some job description (adding Sequoia Christian Preschool to his job description) we offered him a job as our 'Maintenance Tech'. Aaron not only cleans our facilities but also repairs and replaces, paints and purchases the needs we have. He is a person with many talents. We welcome Aaron to our staff.
September is California Missions Offering Month 100% is used to reach people in our great state for Christ. Pray and ask God what He wants you to give.
If you ask this question you would most likely get some unbelievable responses. Beginning in October we are going to find out more of who our God is. I would like you to help us. One of the Names of God is Jehovah-Jireh (The Lord Provides). How has God provided for you? I would like you to give praise to the Lord by giving a testimony of a time where God provided for you. There are many pressures in today's world that attack our faith. But God is working. Will you share a story of how God worked in your life perhaps in a time of need? I will have a signup sheet through the month of September so you can pick your date to share what God has done in your life. If speaking before people is hard for you we can set a time for you to video your testimony.
My family and I are very humbled, excited, and relieved that the Pastor Search process is complete and that I get to continue to minister to and with you here at Sequoia Heights! God is faithful and will continue to lead and guide us as we glorify Him and make disciples. At our Annual Business Meeting on October 7th Pastor Mark and I will be clarifying the details of what you can expect this time of transition. There are many details to work through, but God knows them all and He will faithfully lead us through each and every one of them.
We will be showing two California Mission Offering videos during the month of September. This is an opportunity to support church planting and ministry within our state of California. This one of many opportunities that we will have to give beyond our tithes this year.
On to the serious news...both the co-ed and the men's softball teams made the playoffs this season!!! If you are interested in coming to Big League Dreams and hanging out and cheering us on all the playoff games will be Sunday evening, September 9th. The entry fee is $5 for ages 13 and up. We will put the game times in the bulletin on the 9th.
The Ignition Student Conference will be December 27-29 in Ontario, CA. This is a conference with great speakers, bands, and breakout sessions that will challenge and equip the students to live for Christ. This year's theme is 'Made Alive' Ephesians 2:4-5. The cost will be approximately $200 + food for 6 meals. The more students who attend the cheaper the cost is for everyone. We will be doing a couple of fundraisers: The Chili Cookoff (Oct 7th) and a Work A Thon (TBD). You are not obligated to give but they will be asking you to sponsor them. If they ask you to sponsor them and it doesn't fit your situation right now just reply with "I love you, but I am not going to sponsor you at this point in time." Trust me they WON'T hate you, they will just keep moving on until they find all the sponsors they need. Please continue to pray for our students as they strive to live faithfully for Jesus in every area of their lives. Pray for boldness to speak the truth in love to their friends, enemies, and classmates. And pray that God would give them a hunger to know God through the Scripture and that would lead to faithful and fruitful living.
See you all on Sunday
