SECRET FRIENDS has started again! Although the program was once exclusively reserved for women, we are now opening it up to anyone, male or female, in our congregation. To select a Secret Friend of your own, please contact Colleen Larsen at (619) 850-3299.

A FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN is underway here at Tierrasanta to raise $60,000 for a new AV system for our sanctuary. An anonymous donor has pledged to match up to $30,000 of the funds raised! Thus far, we have received $24,863 in donations. We are less than $6000 away from reaching our goal so please consider this AV upgrade in your contributions!

IT’S RATTLESNAKE SEASON and there has been an uptick in sightings across the county. Because our Church borders a canyon, quite a few critters wander onto our property, rattlesnakes included. During these hot months when the rattlesnakes are out of hibernation, we ask that you keep a close eye on your children, stick to the paved paths, and avoid walking through the bushes.

ONE SAN DIEGO PRESENTS “Good Neighbor,” a countywide event nurturing understanding and common goals between Christians and Muslims. Join us this afternoon at 4:15 pm at the Paradise Valley Church for an informal exchange with our Muslim friends.

A FEW SUMMER SIGN UP SPOTS are still available on the bulletin board in the foyer. If you would like to volunteer just one time, please don’t hesitate to write your name down. We love seeing new faces in the foyer and on the platform. No rotating volunteer commitment is necessary. A big thank you to all who have filled an open spot this summer! Our volunteers are a blessing to this church.

DID YOU KNOW the “Labels Make Cents” Program will donate $0.25 to the Tierrasanta Church for each Loma Linda, Worthington, and Caroline’s brand canned food label they receive? So don’t throw your labels away. Bring them to the Tierrasanta SDA Church office!

DO YOU NEED HELP with elder care, babysitting, errands, cooking, etc.? If so, please contact Angela Carralero by email at or by phone at (619) 249-4778.
