Stephen Ministers Care – Stephen Ministers are members of our congregation who receive special training to provide one-to-one Christian care to people in our congregation and community experiencing challenges in life – grief, loneliness, divorce, hospitalization, disability, job loss, and many other life difficulties. To learn how to become a Stephen Minister – or receive care from one – contact Pastor Connie Larson DeVaughn, Joyce Spencer, Martina Westmoreland, or Robert DeVaughn.

Community Resource Board – Please check out the postings on the bulletin board in the upstairs coffee room. We are making a renewed effort to keep current information at that location of any notices that come our way of housing and job opportunities, activities, concerts, children’s events, etc., etc.

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.
