“Romans: The Letter that Changed the World”

Sundays, May 28 - August 13

Room 101/102


Come and join the Seekers Adult Bible Study for an in-depth study of the book of Romans and its impact on the Roman Empire and on Christians continuing to this day. This twelve-session series will begin on May 28 and end on August 13. We will meet at 8:30 am in Rooms 101/102.  Each session will consist of a short DVD which takes us to some portion of the ancient Roman Empire with appropriate commentary.  These visits are selected to assist us in understanding the cultural and political situations underlying Paul’s writings.  The DVD will be followed by a discussion of the issues raised.


In the first century AD, Rome ruled the world.  The Roman Empire had such an effect on the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea that the empire built a series of smaller “Romes” throughout the region.  From Israel came a letter that would have an impact on Rome and all of its territories.  The influence of that epistle has extended beyond that time and that place all the way down to here and today. That letter, written by the apostle Paul and intended for the first-century Christians who lived in Rome, changed the world.  This twelve-lesson study of Romans – both the people and the book – will give you a fresh look at a vital book of the Bible.


We would love to have some new “seekers” join us on this journey through Romans

Tuesdays, July 11th - August 15th

6:30 pm in the Sanctuary


This summer we will watch three very interesting movies that present different takes on spirituality. The first is Whale Rider, an examination of how a culture preserves its spiritual traditions.  Then we’ll watch two films that use sports as the metaphor for spiritual journeys; one will be familiar and the other perhaps not. Field of Dreams tells the story in a baseball format, while The Legend of Bagger Vance is perhaps less familiar and uses golf to tell an ancient faith story.  As usual, we will watch the film together one week and then discuss it the following week.  If you want to watch the film at home and just come for the discussion, that is fine.  Invite a friend and join us for a time of journeying together.

Caregivers Support Group - Brown Bag Lunch

2nd & 4th Wednesday of Each Month

Fireside Room, 12:00 PM

Caring for someone you love in-home or by visiting a loved one in a care  facility is demanding and can be draining of body, spirit and soul. Caregivers often need support so they can be present to those who need them. BeginningSeptember 23rd, join us on the 4th Wednesday of each month in the Fireside Room at noon.  Bring something to eat as we seek to support each other. All are welcome – friends, family, members and non-members alike.  Rev. LaDue will facilitate the initial meeting as we seek to understand how our faith and connection to each other can sustain us.


Our team of volunteers will arrive 2 years after the rains and disastrous flooding. Twenty-four counties were impacted, 18,000 people were evacuated, approximately 28,000 dwellings damaged and 1,852 homes destroyed.

Operation GratitudeVolunteers Needed for Operation Gratitude

Operation Gratitude sends 150,000+ Care Packages each year to Deployed Troops, Veterans and New Recruits. Of all the items included in these packages, the most cherished are the personal letters of appreciation! Our goal is to include several letters and colorful drawings in every Care Package and tell our service members, past and present, “We Care!” Writing a letter is a meaningful way for Americans to show support for our Military. It only takes five minutes of your day, but will bring lasting joy to the recipients. If you are interested in writing letters to our deployed service members, wounded warriors or veterans of previous conflicts, please contact Susanne Brookens.

Meals on WheelsVolunteers Needed for Meals on Wheels

Each year more than 2,200 San Diegans donate their time to Meals-on-Wheels. We’re looking for Individuals, Couples, or Small Groups who are willing to deliver meals to our neighbors here in our own community for Meals on Wheels. We have groups volunteering the first Monday, the second Monday and the third Wednesday of each month. Volunteer once a month, once a quarter or whenever it is convenient for you. It doesn’t require a lot of your time – only 1½ to 2 hours. No heavy lifting or strenuous activity necessary. From such a small commitment comes a great reward. What about you? If you’re retired, have a flexible work schedule, vacation time coming, or would like to spend some quality time with kids during school breaks, we need you. Contact Jeanne Bauer or call the church office during the week and we will discuss the details and give you a personal invitation to join our other volunteers. It’s a great way to give back to others for all of the blessings God has given you.

Baby LayettesBaby Layettes for Military Outreach Ministries

The mission of Military Outreach Ministries is to help enlisted military personnel and their families. In our partnership with MOM, we asked what we could do. The request was simple: knitted or crochetted baby sweaters, booties, caps and/or   blankets created in yarn as soft as a cloud and in the traditional baby colors of pink, blue, yellow or green. Would you be willing to take part in this wonderful ministry? If so, pick up a flyer at the Community Outreach table.
