Arizona Church Christmas
Cantata Shares the Spirit
of the Season

The Foothills Community Church in Chandler, Ariz., presented a Christmas cantata on Sabbath, Dec. 14. The community-sing format, “Joy has Dawned,” (directed by Tom McSherry and composed and arranged by Lloyd Larson) was performed by a choir composed of church members. Through new songs and familiar carols, the cantata presents a message of joy and hope for the Christmas season and the second coming. The program, enjoyed by newcomers and church members alike, shares the true spirit of Christmas; the birth of Jesus. “Joy has Dawned” is a reminder of their reason for the season. When the world is rushing around, stop and remember our Savior’s sacrifice and the hope of His soon return that will wipe away every tear!












As the Foothills Community church choir shared their music, the congregation and visitors joined in singing traditional songs such as “Joy to the World” and ” Angels We Have Heard on High.”

Riverview Christian Academy
Students Visit with Nevada Governor

Students, faculty, and parents of Riverview Christian Academy (RCA) in Reno participated in a field trip to the Nevada state capital in Carson City in early November. The day included visiting the Nevada State Museum and the state’s capitol building. Students from grades 3 through 8 were given a tour of the capitol building and learned of the rich history behind every door, portrait, and piece of furniture. However, the biggest highlight of the visit was a personal encounter with Nev. Governor Steve Sisolak. Everyone had a great time learning about the history of Nevada and meeting the governor in person.







RCA’s students were surprised when Nevada State Governor Sisolak walked directly over to their group in the middle of the tour to greet them and spend some time answering questions. Toward the end of his visit with them, Mr. Sisolak gave each student a copper coin with the State Seal on one side and his portrait on the other.
