El Dorado Adventist School Remembers First Responders
For seventeen years, El Dorado Adventist School in Placerville, Calif., has honored first responders in memory of 9-11-01. Students dress in red, white and blue for this event and the program includes: student honor guard raising the flag, a bugler playing taps, the ringing of a bell that symbolizes a fallen comrade, and the singing of God Bless America. This last September, the community guest speaker was Sheriff John D’Agostini of El Dorado County. Following the program, elementary students give hand written cards of gratitude and homemade treats to the First Responders.

Women Retreat and Renew in Utah
It was the first weekend of November 2019, and 115 women of the Nevada-Utah Conference (NUC) were nestled in the mountains of Utah at Zermatt resort, enjoying the NUC women’s retreat. The women had traveled from Reno, Las Vegas, Utah, Arizona, California, and even Idaho to attend the annual retreat. Speakers and participants shared about the blessings of praise, service, connection, and love. In the seminars, attendees learned about prayer boards and how to deal with grief. “I left the weekend in awe of God and the way He can use us in our limited human frailty,” said Melody Darrow, Women’s Ministry director for the NUC.
This year’s NUC Women’s Ministries retreat is scheduled for October 16-18, 2020. Learn more about the NUC:
