“This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.”    Psalm 118:24

Here’s what we have for you today for your “rejoicing!”

The Well- 10:30am, Youth Adult Room in the Church- this is our primary Sabbath School and it happens at the church because we want you to be connecting with a local church on Sabbath. This is a time of food, fellowship and feasting on God’s Word. Join us each Sabbath morning.

“The Lesson” is another Sabbath School experience that meets at 10:45am in the Ortner Lobby. Join faculty, staff, and students as we come together to study the Sabbath School lesson and its real-world application. We're excited to share time in fellowship, discussion and biweekly bagels.

IRR SS”- Another option for your Sabbath School experience. It meets each week in the IRR Gear room and everyone is welcome (IRR major or not!) It starts at 10:40.

CVC- 9:15am and Noon- there are two worship services at College View Church (CVC) each Sabbath. You are welcome to go to either (or both, thought they are usually both the same!). Normally our Lead Pastor Harold Alomia speaks but this week is the end of our first Power Pac weekend so Pastor John Bradshaw will be bringing God’s word.

V2- 7:30pm, Rees Hall Chapel- This is our “close the Sabbath” time when we come together for 30 minutes of singing and Elissa Vitelle will be sharing their current journey with Jesus. It’s a great way to end the Sabbath and all are welcome.

Have a great Sabbath,

Pastor Rich
