TODAY WE BEGIN A NEW SERMON SERIES on the life and writings of Paul. Paul’s teachings are fundamental in Christianity and they tell us a lot about the man himself. We hope you enjoy this series.

THE SCAFFOLDING around various points of the education building will be there for the next five weeks. If you have young children, please monitor them closely in that area.

THE SOUTH BAY SHELTER is now accepting donations for non-perishable food items. This can include canned goods, boxed cereal, dried pasta, jars of sauce, peanut butter, pancake mix, granola bars, fruit snacks, nuts, or any other nonperishable food you think young families might find joy in receiving. Donations can be placed in the round barrel in our church foyer.

A MEMORIAL SERVICE FOR JOYCE HAYNES-PALAIO will be held this Friday, September 10, at 7 pm in the Paradise Valley SDA Church.

OUR TITHE ENVELOPES now display new, updated conference offering codes. Feel free to recycle any old tithe envelopes in your possession and replace them with our new ones.

VOLUNTEER SIGNUPS for opening prayer and children’s story are taking place in our foyer. If you don’t know your future schedule, please don’t let that prevent you from signing up. If the date approaches and you are unable to volunteer, we will gladly find a replacement.

THE SON OF ONE OF OUR CHURCH MEMBERS is available for tutoring or child care services weekday afternoons or any time on the weekends. If you are interested, please contact Danielle Verbrugghen at (619) 302-7227.

FOR SANITATION REASONS, WE HAVE TEMPORARILY PAUSED both the children’s offering and main offering segments of our service. If you would like to contribute tithes and offerings, you may still do so either in person or online. You may drop your offering into the offering box in the foyer or you can visit our church website ( and click “online giving” at the top of the page. Thank you for your continued support of our church during this challenging year.

WE ARE WANTING TO HOLD A MUSIC SERIES next year that will bring Christian groups and musicians to perform in concert in our sanctuary. If you would like to donate to this endeavor, please mark your tithe envelope “music series.”
