THANK YOU TO ALL WHO LOVINGLY DONATED to the Shelter Ministry this Thanksgiving season. Because of you, each family living in the South Bay Shelter received an abundant Thanksgiving food basket from Costco. Our Shelter Ministry continues into the Christmas season beginning next Sabbath. More information on our “Angels” will be provided in the coming weeks.

THE HEALING PRAYER LIST will start anew next Sabbath. If you would like to add a name to the list or keep a name on the list, please write it down on the clipboard in the foyer alcove.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN JOINING THE VOCAL ENSEMBLE for our Christmas Sabbath performance, please see Ritchie Carbajal or Pastor Gary after today’s service. The vocal ensemble typically meets after Church each Sabbath to eat lunch and rehearse.

THE SEASON OF ADVENT IS ALWAYS A JOYOUS TIME, as we look forward to the birth of Jesus and all that entails. We will be offering three Friday evening Advent Vespers in our sanctuary beginning Friday, December 8 (December 8, 15, 22). The short program will be followed by light refreshments in the fellowship hall. We hope you will be able to join us for this annual TSDAC tradition!

ESCONDIDO ADVENTIST ACADEMY will be hosting a “Night of Lights” on Saturday evening, December 16. This event will feature a walking tour of the story of Jesus’ birth. EAA is looking for volunteers to be part of the nativity, bake goods for the event, direct traffic, and help guide each walking group. If you would like to participate, please contact Nercy at (619) 453-1834.

WE ARE IN NEED OF VOLUNTEERS to give the opening prayer and children’s story each Sabbath in 2024. If you would like to give back to our Church in this way, we invite you to sign up in the foyer. No rotating commitment is required. A big ‘thank you’ to everyone who signed up in 2023!
