The Sacramento Ukrainian Seventh-day Adventist Company was officially organized recently. It’s the first official Ukrainian congregation in the Northern California Conference—the “daughter” of the Sacramento Slavic church. We are excited to welcome them to our Pacific Union family!

Holbrook Indian School Launches
Equine Facilitated Learning Class
We love to talk about Holbrook Indian School, and the work they are doing. For the past eight and a half years, Holbrook has offered horsemanship classes, but this school year they introduced a class called Equine Facilitated Learning (EFL). This class goes beyond teaching students how to ride—and the results have been amazing. Our prayers are with each one of these wonderful young people that God has brought to our school—and we pray especially for the dedicated staff as they provide a healing place for the students to learn, grow, and thrive.

February—Black History Month
This weekend we begin the annual observance of Black History Month—a celebration of the history and achievements by African–Americans and a time for recognizing the important role of black men and women in U.S. history. Many of our churches will be celebrating Black History Month, and the Pacific Union Recorder—which should be reaching your mailbox this week, explores some of the great themes of Black History Month.
