                                        Announcements from the Church

                                                       June 9, 2021

Remember that tonight begins the weekly bible study of the book of Revelation.  Each Wednesday there will be another chapter studied.  The workbooks will be available the first night you attend. We begin at 7:00 pm in the main Sanctuary.  We will have you sign in and masks and social-distance seating are still required. (for now).  Pastor will also be recording these and they will be posted on our church website.

Remember the picnic potluck at Colleen and Don's on Sabbath the 26th.   

The church office will be closed this Thursday afternoon through next Wednesday.  I am going to be with my friend again.  I so appreciate all the prayers for her as she has gone through this grief process.  I can see that she is slowly healing.  She no longer blames God in anger which is wonderful.  Keep the prayers coming for Pam.  I will be back in the office on Thursday, the 17th.  Pastor may be here Tuesday morning until noon.  You can always e-mail or text me anything as I do work some while away.

The sermons etc. are now be uploaded to the church webpage each week that one is recorded.  This month, we have several Sabbath's that Pastor is not speaking.  We will try and uploaded an older sermon for those that like that.  Merlin also has many links on the web page to other speakers and programs.

Don't forget next Sabbath the 19th, will be our Sabbath in the Redwoods at the camp meeting grounds. The luncheon after will be as low-contact as possible. Sabbath School is 10-11am and Worship service is 11:15-12:15.  Bring your comfy chair if you want it, hats, sunscreen, water etc. and plan to fellowship together.

3. Sabbath’s during Camp Meeting- If you are planning on going to RAC just for the Sabbath’s of camp-meeting, YOU MUST register. You do this by contacting the church office and letting me know. I will then complete one registration/application for the church and will send it to Harry Salvini. We have to comply with state COVID regulations and track all who come to the campgrounds. We do not know what they will do for those who arrive without registering. DON’T MISS OUT!

5. RESERVING THE CENTER – Please remember that the center has a different calendar than the church. We do not handle reserving the center unless it is a church activity. Funeral luncheons, parties, showers, meetings
etc. must be reserved by the ministry that is hosting it. The FCSC then has people they need to notify so that the center is ready for use. Twanya Mcknight has the master calendar. 707-725-1166 ext 202 or tmcknight@fortunaacs.com.

                                    Announcements From the Church - June 3, 2021

1.Don't forget that Sunday, June 6th is our student recognition and graduation celebration.  Luke McCrigler has graduated from Fortuna High and Abby Norton from 8th Grade as well as Ivy from Eureka.  Numerous other children will be recognized and share their talents and accomplishments with us.  There will be an inside program and then we will gather outside after for refreshments and congratulations.  4:00-6:00pm on the 6th.

2.This Sabbath there will not be any worship services recorded.  Actually for the next month or so.  We have several guest speakers and special services coming up.  It has been so wonderful to have had Rob to minister to our members and community by helping us post our service in one place.  We are working toward creating a YouTube link for the church webpage like we did for the evangelistic series for future sermons and announcements.  We will let you know when we start that.  On the church web page Merlin has links to several other Weekly broadcasts and other opportunities to worship on-line. Hopefully soon, we won't have to tape at all.  Thanks to everyone who got their lessons, sermons, music, etc. to us over the last 18 months. If has been a challenge, but we have met it with lots of prayer and help.

3.Please remember that in order to go out on the two camp meeting Sabbaths, you need to let us know.  We have to submit an application to Harry Salvini with the names of everyone who will be coming out just for the Sabbath services on the 24th and 31st of July.  We must comply with state and conference regs.  Please let me know as soon as you can.

4.Also, the Sabbath in the Redwoods collective worship service is Sabbath, June 19th.  That is when all the area churches gather for a Sabbath worship service at the camp grounds.  Sabbath School will be from 10:00-11:00 and the Worship service from 11:15-12:15. Lunch will be Soup, salad, bread and dessert. Bring your sunscreen, hat, comfortable chair if you don't like metal chairs, water and your smile. Hope to see you there.

5.June 13th there are 2 workbees.  One at the RAC grounds to prepare for the 19th. The other one is at the former grounds of the Community Center garden on Newburg.  It just needs to be tidied up so it looks like we took good care of it.

6.Sabbath, June 26th we will be having another PICNIC POTLUCK after church.  This time it will be held and Don and Colleen's house.  It will be just like last time.  Bring  a picnic for your family, chairs, hats, blankets, water etc.  More info to follow when we get closer.

7.Just a reminder regarding using the Community Service Center.  We do not manage their calendar.  If your class, ministry, committee, is planning an event, you need to check with the Center to see if it is available and make sure you get it reserved.  Same for showers, weddings, funeral meals etc.  We want to make the staff's job as easy as we can and keep everyone in the loop of events. The church does not automatically reserve it for these events and ministries.  Thanks for your help.

8.This coming Wednesday, June 9th at 7:00 we will be starting a mid-week study on the book of Revelation.  The workbooks will be available the first night.  Come and join in the fellowship and worship time.

There will be so much more information coming about upcoming events.  Please watch for e-mails or postings on the bulletin boards or in the bulletin.  Please share with those that do not have e-mail or who are attending outside church.  FOR THOSE OF YOU ATTENDING PARKING LOT SERVICE; There will be a basket inside the doors by the office on the window sill with bulletins in it just for you.  I apologize for not thinking of this before.


                              Redwood Campmeeting 2021 - July 24 & 31   

We have just talked to Harry Salvini from RAC.  In regards to the two Camp Meeting Sabbaths, if you plan to come out on either the 24th or 31st of July JUST FOR THE DAY, YOU STILL NEED TO REGISTER.  

Instead of bombarding Harry with 30 more applications, we will be sending in one for everyone in our church who wants to go out for just the Sabbaths.  You will most likely have to sign in as well for tracking purposes.  


If you are already registered and have a site, you don't need to let me know.  I wish there was a less complicated way to do it, but this is what we have to do.  I don't know what would happen if you did not notify us and you showed up at the grounds, so please, please let me know so you don't risk not being able to go in.

I will need to know by June 13th.
