SALT Missions Team in the Field: Santa Rosa, California

On May 19th, nine college students, one leader, and myself (Pastor Caleb) will be traveling to Santa Rosa, Northern California to help with the wildfire relief that destroyed over 100,000 acres in the fall of 2017.  We will be partnering with an organization called Praying Pelican Missions that works closely with the local churches and organizations to help with the clean up and recovery efforts in the area.  We will also be working with the different agencies throughout the city that helps with providing meals and shelters for the people that are in need. Some additional work that we will be doing our stay is running an after school program to help with homework and different activities with the children in the area.  Please partner with us by praying for us.  Here are some things to pray for:  


  • TEAM UNITY, to remain humble & grow together as one family under Christ  
  • PROTECTION, to keep us safe both physically & spiritually throughout the trip  
  • SANTA ROSA COMMUNITY, for those we will be serving, to have open hearts ready to receive the love of Christ  
  • TRANSFORMATION, to return changed & serve as missionaries in our own community

Sunday, 5/27

Service Time Change

A few months ago, our church transitioned to two earlier worship times -- 9:30AM and 11:15AM. Thank you all so much for supporting the church towards a very smooth transition with our earlier times! Initially, the time adjustments were helpful.  We had a growing shift of parents and children (and overall attenders) moving to the now earlier time of 11:15AM.   

However, we did experience some challenges in all our services for our EC, KC, and CE. We only had a 30 minute transition-window time between services which led to less or no parking spaces for our 2nd service attendees. This shortened window also limited the time for any 9:30AM post-service activities. 


Thus, we want to increase our transition-window from 30 to 45 minutes by re-adjusting our service times.  This increased time window will also help our Sunday teams and classes  with more time to prepare between services. 

Starting Sunday, June 24th, our new service times will be: 
1st service:      9:20am - 10:35am 
2nd service:  11:20am - 12:35pm

Sunday, 5/20 @ 4:30pm
