Vallejo Drive Church
Celebrates Graduates in Style





The Vallejo Drive church staff and friends got together on a recent Saturday afternoon for a drive-through celebration at the church’s parking lot to acknowledge this year’s graduates. Church members enthusiastically participated in decorating cars with colorful props and messages, and produced a fun video of the event with a shout out to each of the graduates. “Congratulations to all class of 2020 graduates!” the church shared on their social media. “May God bless you all on this milestone! You did it!!!”

Loma Linda Korean Church
Hosts Food Drive




Churches around the Pacific Union are hosting food drives in order to support individuals in need during the COVID-19 pandemic. At the Loma Linda Korean church, a food drive hosted by the outreach department helped provide meals for homeless and low-income families. In late February, the church also hosted a blanket drive and engaged young people in helping assemble hygiene kits. While coming together as a community looks different now, this congregation is eager to continue serving the community around them and giving hope to those in need.

Future Teacher Receives
Education Scholarship





As the daughter of two educators, Melissa Maguire grew up in a teaching environment—and if anyone asked her what she wanted to do in the future, she knew exactly what to tell them: “I want to be the good teacher who makes a difference in a kid’s life.” This spring, Maguire graduated from high school and is preparing to study education in the fall at La Sierra University. Helping her on her journey is the Department of Education for the Pacific Union Conference, who awarded Maguire one of their four-year scholarships.
