June 29 Offering Designated for Pacific Southwest Mission Opportunities
Tomorrow, Sabbath, June 29, is the Impact Pacific offering. The offerings are used to respond to opportunities for mission unique to the Pacific Union and are used exclusively within the local conference for mission opportunities in three areas:
Native Peoples—Projects that directly benefit ministries working with Native Americans and Native Hawaiians.
Mission in Context—Projects that are anchored in responding to specific local needs, particularly Refugee and Immigrant Ministries.
Providential Opportunities—Projects that are initiated because of an extraordinary opportunity for impacting the communities we serve that go beyond, or outside of, the scope of existing ministries.
Learn more about this offering and how it is impacting the west via the link below:
Happy 4th of July to All God’s People!
Independence Day, also known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence 243 years ago on July 4, 1776. The Continental Congress declared that the 13 American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America, and were no longer part of the British Empire. And now, those 13 original colonies have grown to 50 states! Learn about the establishment of the five states in the Pacific Union in this week’s episode of All God’s People. These five amazing states make up our Pacific Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, with over 220,000 members—the 2nd largest Union in the North American Division.
