Paradise Adventist Academy Students Prepare to Share Their Talents on Stage
The town of Paradise in Butte County, Calif., has long history as a musical community, and every year, Paradise Adventist Academy’s (PAA) music department hosts a musical production. This spring, the PAA Concert Choir will perform The Sound of Music at the Paradise Performing Arts Center. “Paradise is an amazing community that supports the arts and rallies around to provide live orchestration, broadway-level costumes, state-of-the-art sound and lights, and professionally designed and constructed sets,” said Merilyn Chaffee, music director at PAA. “As music director, it’s a joy to be part of such a talented and dedicated community.” In addition to a musical, members of PAA’s high school choir have auditioned and secured positions in the Southwestern Choral Festival which takes place Feb. 6-9.

Las Vegas Young People Spread S’more Love
Sharing God’s love can taste great! Las Vegas Pathfinders in the Teen Leadership Training (TLT) program organized an ooey, gooey, delicious community outreach project over the winter holidays. Collecting graham crackers, kosher marshmallows, and chocolate bars, they assembled 300 s’more kits for the St. Jude Ranch for Children, a therapeutic residential treatment program for abused and neglected children in Nevada. “The TLT program is designed to train and mentor youth in service and leadership skills,” explains Nevada-Utah Conference Teen Leadership Training Coordinator, Desiree Tomlinson. “Our TLTs receive training in Pathfinder club management and programming over a four-year period. Community outreach is one of our training tracks, and last year they made emoji pillows for hospice patients. The best part of the program is that our teens are inspired and empowered to apply their training in creative ministry in their local congregation and home communities.”
