All God's People #204

* * * * * *

In terms of the date they were established, the Sparks Church is not the oldest church in our Union—or even in the Nevada-Utah Conference. But two milestones warranted a special celebration: the 40th Anniversary, and burning the mortgage. In addition to special guests from various church organizations, there were a number of people who attended the celebration from the local and national government. And 14 precious souls were added to the church through baptism!

Do you remember when you graduated from grade 12? This week in All God’s People, we’ve got a photo of the 2018 high school graduating class from Monterey Bay Academy. Graduation is an
 important milestone—and it is such a delight that we get to share it with so many young people every spring—especially with those who are graduating from the Academies from across our Union, and those graduating from Pacific Union College and La Sierra University.

On Father’s Day, as we think about the ones we call Dad or Papa or Pops or Father, and as we have the opportunity to bask in the love of the children who have their own affectionate names for us, we can also be mindful of the ways in which we can bring fatherly value to those whose lives we touch.

In Proverbs 14:26 it says, “In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence; and his children shall have a place of refuge.” (Proverbs 14:26 KJV)

What a wonderful promise for All God’s People.

In what ways are you faithful?

We’re starting off the month of July with faithfulness. The Pacific Union Conference will be focusing on the Fruits of the Spirit over the next nine months—one fruit per month—attempting to show a holistic view of what it means to
live the Spirit-filled life. 

The fruits of the spirit are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22).
