EAGLE ROCK CHURCH HOSTS BLOCK PARTY OUTREACH
For one special evening every August, Eagle Rock Church becomes a magnet that draws community members together with the National Night Out Block Party. It’s a time for the church and its neighbors to get to know each other, share food, games, prizes, and fellowship as, together, they seek for a better and safer community. Congratulations, Eagle Rock! What a great way to show a community you care.

REDDING CHURCH HOSTS GOD’S CLOSET CLOTHING GIVEAWAY TO HELP VICTIMS OF CARR FIRE
We’ve all been concerned and praying about the wildfires in California. The Adventist members in Redding, California, have responded to those fires in a powerful and much-appreciated way.
During the first weekend of August, churches in the Northern California Conference rallied to support those affected by the Carr fires. At Redding Adventist Academy, over 60 community and Adventist church members from around the area gathered to set up an expanded God’s Closet clothing giveaway in the school gym. On Sunday, August 5, 420 people, including victims of the Carr fire, walked through the gym doors to receive clothing for their families.
There are so many ways in which can make the love of God more tangible to our neighbors and communities.

CHURCH SUPPORT SERVICES VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS LEADERSHIP SKILLS TRAINING INITIATIVE FOR ADVENTIST ACADEMIES
The beginning of the new school year is just around the corner—and soon our schools across the Pacific Union will be welcoming their students back for another great year. We are very proud of what is being achieved in our schools—and are particularly grateful for the innovative and groundbreaking programs found in our academies.
Students at Sacramento Adventist Academy and a handful of other Adventist schools around the country have partnered with an initiative called FIRST that teaches leadership skills through hands-on activities involving science, math, and technology. A new video from Church Support Services explores why students and teachers alike are captivated by this program.

The stories this week on All God’s People are reminders of how very grateful we should be for God’s love and care, for the ministry of our churches and schools, and for how the love of Jesus brings us together. Even though we are spread out across a very large Union, we are still one big family of God!
