Central California Educators Focus on Why Mission Matters

Central California Conference (CCC) educators gathered in Clovis in mid August for their 3rd annual educators’ in-service—a day of professional growth and enrichment! This year, they focused on why mission matters. Guest speakers hosted breakout sessions and provided resources designed to reinforce the essentiality of caring for oneself in order to care for and guide others, as well as important information regarding updates to curriculum, testing materials, and technology integration. The CCC’s Education Department motto, 1 Thessalonians 5:11, encourages them to, “encourage one another and build each other up, just in fact as you are doing.” These educators are a prime example of this, as they go forward into the school year prepared to serve each other, their students, and their communities.




Central California educators sit in on a breakout session led by Leticia Rosado Russell on the importance of self-care.

Chino Valley Chinese
Church Hosts Children’s
Cooking Class

In late July and early August, the Chino Valley Chinese Church hosted Christine Fujitani, a cooking instructor who taught morning cooking classes for young people interested in making delicious food! Young people learned recipes like Asian garden protein pasta, Vietnamese spring rolls, Caribbean salsa, Greek vegetarian pita, and strawberry salad. “We’re in such a fast-paced society that we’re not really slowing down to cook,” Christine said. “I think the health of our families are taking a toll. When children are young, it’s a great time to help them learn really great principles about eating healthy.”



Several participants of a children’s cooking class at the Chino Valley Chinese church work follow their instructor’s steps for turning a variety of ingredients into healthy meals.
