OUR GUEST SPEAKER THIS MORNING IS PASTOR BOHDAN VADIS of the Tierrasanta Lutheran Church. Pastor Vadis was born in Bemidji, Minnesota and earned his Master of Divinity from the Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley California. Coming to understand the message of Scripture and helping others understand God’s plan and purpose contained in the Bible has been central to Pastor Bohdan’s ministry and work as a pastor. On his day off, this Minnesota native enjoys fishing and playing hockey and can regularly be found on the ice or the water in San Diego. We are blessed to have Pastor Vadis as our guest speaker this morning.

WE ARE IN NEED of two volunteers to give the opening prayer and the call for offering next Sabbath. If you would like to volunteer this one time, you may sign up in the right foyer alcove.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BEING BAPTISED, please contact Pastor Gary or give our church office a call (858) 576-9990. Baptism classes will begin soon as we prepare for our Fall baptism.
