TODAY’S GUEST SPEAKER IS PASTOR SAMUEL GALARPE. Pastor Galarpe was born and raised in the Philippines. He received his B.A. degree from Mountain View College in Valencia City, Philippines, and later received an M.A. degree in Ministry. He pastored in the Philippines for many years before becoming President of the South Philippine Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. He and his wife are enthusiastic members of our church family. We welcome Pastor Galarpe to our pulpit today and look forward to his message.
OUR MIDWEEK FELLOWSHIP is currently looking closely at “The Writings of Israel.” The Hebrew Bible is divided into three parts—the Law (the Torah), the Prophets, and the Writings. These writings have often been referred to as the “wisdom literature” of the Bible. This week we examine the book of Esther. You’re invited to join us on Tuesday at 6 pm in the Board Room.
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL is almost here! The “Maker Fun Factory” will be open for business July 5, 6, and 7 from 6-8:15 pm and on Saturday, July 8, from 10-11:15 am. You may sign your child up in the courtyard following the worship service today and next Sabbath.

A FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN is underway here at Tierrasanta to raise money 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 $23,140 in donations. The total cost of improvements will be $60,000. We are so close to reaching our goal so please consider this campaign in your contributions!
BASKETBALL HOOP NEEDED FOR SHELTER. The teenagers staying at the South Bay Shelter don’t currently have a form of outdoor entertainment. Let’s change that! If you have a wall-mount basketball hoop and backboard that is in good condition and looking for a new home, please consider donating it to the shelter.
