Students Receive New Bibles
From Carmichael Adventurers Club
The Adventurers Club of the Carmichael Church (under the direction of Family Life Pastor Melissa Howell and Caroline Smith) recently presented Paradise Adventist Academy students with new Bibles! Each of the Bibles have a handwritten message inside from the club members. “The look of joy and excitement on their faces was heart-warming,” said Brenda Muth, registrar at PAA. “We thank the generosity of the Carmichael Church in adopting our school during this difficult time.” PAA also expressed gratitude to the Carmichael church for raising over $30,000 to serve once-weekly meals to their school and church family. “It has been such a blessing!” Muth said.

Desert Valley Church Members Help Clean Up Arizona
The Arizona desert looks cleaner thanks to this group of young people! Desert Valley Church’s Come As You Are (CAYA) group recently participated in a cleanup of Arizona state land as part of their Service Saturday initiative. The group partnered with Keep Nature Wild Co., and together with friends, neighbors, and visitors, they removed car parts, rugs, tires, bottles, and cement blocks from the area. CAYA dedicates one Saturday per month to community service. Future Service Saturday plans include a summer homeless ministry, partnering with Feed My Starving children, and continuing to keep their community clean!
