TODAY'S SCHEDULE

The schedule for this Sabbath again includes a mixture of Zoom and live stream gatherings as well as in-person worship at the church on Main Street, St. Helena.

The loose offering for August 14 is designated for the Christian Record Services.  

The number of people with visual impairment or blindness is expected to double by 2050. This could include you or someone you love or someone in your community. Who cares?

Since 1899, the Seventh-day Adventist Church has cared for people who are blind. With support from members like you, you show you care by providing funds for Bibles, camps for the blind, college scholarships, accessible reading resources, and a Bible school with Braille and large-print lessons through Christian Record Services for the Blind. Christian Record Services empowers people who are blind to engage their communities and embrace the Blessed Hope.

There is more we could do. If every church member gave generously and faithfully to support ministry for people who are blind, together we could also decrease loneliness and despair in the blind community and reduce the accompanying health-related complications such as a weakened immune system, anxiety, depression, and cognitive decline.

Revelation 1:7 offers a future with eyesight for people who are blind: “‘Behold, he cometh with clouds;’ and ‘every eye shall see him.’” Until that wonderful day, your gift will provide hope and love and help nurture someone’s spiritual journey with Jesus.

Consider how much you value your eyesight and prayerfully donate today for someone who cannot see, so they can receive the caring love of Jesus through Christian Record Services. Give liberally so people who are blind can understand how much you care.

Thank you for also supporting your local congregation in this tangible way.  Your local church family offering is designated carefully and used frugally to keep the church running, grounds kept up, and to support Christian Education at Foothills Adventist Elementary School and PUC Prep.

  • Church Website: Online Giving
