The Ten Commandments
Are the Ten Commandments just a list of rules we are supposed to obey? Do they still apply today? And if so, how do we apply the commandments to our lives?
In this ten-session series, pastor Albert Tate takes us through the Ten Commandments and shows us how we were first loved by God and what it looks like to love him in return. God wrote a love letter through his commandments so that we could know his heart and learn to love others in the same way.
We are still doing this in a hybrid format meaning that if you wanted to attend via Zoom, you can still be part of the study while we are also meeting in person. If you want to be added to our mailing list, please let Major Ann know. We meet on Tuesday nights at 7:00 PM in the Library.
YouthForce Hosts Family Night Fun
The YouthForce will be hosting a Family Fun Night on Friday, March 3rd. YOU are invited to share in the excitement as we play Cranium: Bible Edition together. You don't want to miss this! We want everyone to join in on the laughs that will be had while acting, sculpting, shouting, humming, drawing, and most importantly, learning. Bring your children and grandchildren.

Requests will be prayed for in our Prayer Room and distributed through our Prayer Chain. Requests can be made anonymously.
Creative Arts Conference
Hello Artists, Creatives + Worship Leaders!
Get ready for the Territorial Creative Arts Conference! Our theme for this year is "Rhythms" inspired by Matthew 11:28-30 (The Message)
"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
We pray that you will find rhythms of rest, growth, and grace in Jesus and through our time together.
Date: March 10-12, 2023
Location: Camp Del Oro, Nevada City
