OUR “GAME OF THRONES,” SERMON SERIES dealing with power and justice, continues today. The adage “power corrupts—and absolute power corrupts absolutely” has some biblical confirmation.  Yet in many biblical stories God’s providence is seen, even in and through a powerful person. We will attempt to find God—and goodness—in these stories. Today is part 3 in the series.

BEFORE YOU LEAVE TODAY, please fill out the church directory contact card located in the pew in front of you or see Molly in the foyer after the service. We need to verify your correct contact information for our new church directory before that info is submitted to Lifetouch this week. If you participated in a photo session this past week, you do not need to fill out a contact card.

MEMBERSHIP REQUESTS (SECOND READING) have been made by the following individuals: Leland, Sheri, and Jake Giddings wish to transfer their membership to our church from the Bonita Valley SDA Church. David Tomeraasen wishes to transfer his membership to our church from the Point Loma SDA Church. Ernst Niemann wishes to join our church membership on Profession of Faith. Judy Gore wishes to transfer her membership to the Dulzura SDA Church.

OUR CHURCH WILL SOON BE STARTING a powerful new ministry called Stephen Ministry, as a way of caring for members of our church family going through difficult times. Stephen Ministers meet with care receivers once a week to encourage and uplift. If you are looking for a way to get more involved in our church, please contact Stephen Ministry leader, Kerra Hester, at kerrahester@gmail.com.
