’For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’ Jeremiah 29:11
Summer Salad Suppers – June 28, July 12, July 19
Free Concert – Gabby Roberts will be traveling to Norway and Iceland with the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus next month. Before they leave, they will be presenting a free Tour Send-Off Concert, on Thursday, June 28, 7:00pm, at Pasadena Presbyterian Church. All are invited!
It’s Anybody’s Game! – You are all invited to a new and unique game show here at church! Similar to shows you see on television, with a mix of popular board games, contestants will compete for prizes in front of a live audience. If you would like to be a contestant, please see Roland Wiley to complete a simple interest form. Audiences are also needed, and concessions (snacks) will be sold during the event. The three game shows will be held on Saturdays: June 23rd, July 14th, and August 18, all in the evening.
Special Movie Presentation – The ABC Wednesday TLC group invites you to join us on Wednesday, July 27th at 7:00 PM, downstairs in Barinaga Hall to see the award-winning Danish movie “Babette’s Feast.” This will be our final get-together after studying Timothy Keller’s book, The Prodigal God. Keller emphasizes that in Jesus’ parable of the Prodigal Son, the feast at the end of story was a time to bring the family together. So it will be at the end of time in the “Marriage Supper of the Lamb.” Bring a snack or dessert — not exactly a supper or a “feast”, just a time of sharing. — Dick Young
ABC CHURCH CAMP — This is not your “sitting in meetings all weekend long camp.” We plan for a good mix of togetherness, free time, and working alone/small groups. We stay in cabins (not tents), have separation where possible for families, can make dietary accommodations, and have bathrooms inside most cabins. We are going to Camp Colby Ranch, the weekend of October 26-28 – this camp is a little more rustic-feeling than our last camp; however, it is closer. Adults are $135.00 and children 3-12 years old are $75 (children under 3 are free; scholarships available). If you have questions, please see Pastor Connie or Lori Ottaviano.
We are requesting volunteers for the Sunday morning food distribution. We could use help with driving, assisting in food pick up, and sorting the food once it is delivered to the church. It’s easy work, and has become a very important aid to the community, and is an outreach opportunity. Those who are interested in volunteering are asked to please contact Robert DeVaughn
We Need Bags… We need plastic/paper grocery bags for the Altadena Food Bank. Please bring them by the ABC office.
Consumer Electronics – ABC collects cell phones, ink jet cartridges, laptop computers, notebook computers, iPods, digital cameras and digital video cameras as a fund-raiser for Church Camp. We cannot accept laser or toner cartridges, damaged, reconditioned or refilled inkjet cartridges, tower or desktop computers or monitors. Such acceptable items can be placed in the box next to the office door.
Behind a Tiny Story – Check out Myrna Barinaga’s response to George’s request for stories! — a book about her life and God’s faithfulness. $20 — proceeds go to Altadena Baptist Church www.myrnabarinaga.com
Podcasts of the ABC sermons are now available on iTunes through the Altadena Baptist Church Facebook page. Both the download for the iTunes app and the podcasts themselves are free. We thank Loren A. Roberts for making this important service available to our friends and members. They are also now available via mp3 on the Sermon Audios tab.
