The church in Sparks, Nev., recently hosted a campout for their church members in Truckee, Calif. Fellowship, s’mores, singing together, and a trip to Stampede Reservoir disc golf constituted their weekend together. “We were joined by a couple of families from the Riverview church in Reno,” shared Neat Randriamialison, pastor of the Sparks church. “It was nice to be together!” Next year, the Riverview and Sparks churches plan to host an official, combined church campout—and look forward to more fellowship!

Connects with UC Berkeley
Students Through Pop-up Polls
This summer, three master’s students from Andrews University’s Master of Arts in Youth and Young Adult Ministry (MAYYAM) set up polls on the UC Berkeley campus to engage with students. Though some polls focus on popular culture and sports, the primary focus for the polls is apologetics—engaging students with their questions about God. “At first I was scared about being out there on campus, but then I was surprised how easy it was to talk with people and how many were actually interested in talking about their God questions,” said Daniel Bennet, a MAYYAM participant. “Because of my experience here, I am definitely going to look for ways to connect with students on campus wherever I wind up serving Christ.”
