Redding Adventist Academy

What a great evening I just had!!!

I was at our school's Elementary musical. It was "King of the Jungle" The theme was about a jungle adventure, where a group of children took a field trip with their teacher. A "father" played by one of the 6th grade boys, learned the lesson of being in touch with God the creator of all life.

It was a fantastic program.

If you are looking for a good Christian school and private education program for your children, check out your local Seventh-day Adventist school. It's the largest Protestant school system in the world.!

Happy Days...

This weekend Steve Arrington will speak for Church and Vespers: 7:30 p.m. Saturday. He has a wonderful story to tell, and is currently leading short term mission trips to Fiji. (It's a hard location, but someone has to work there...)

We are continuing a new sermon series at church...the Ten Commandments, touching on two commandments a week. Seventh-day Adventists seek to teach the world the truth of the Gospel of Jesus, in that we are not saved by our works, and we are not saved without works. Our works of obedience spring from a heart of love for God, powered by the Holy Spirit dwelling within. So...the ten commandments are God's standard for obedience, including the 4th commandment (The seventh-day Sabbath on Saturday)

This weekend...we will have a special renewal of wedding vows for my sister-in-law and brother-in-law. What a nice way to celebrate 25 years of marriage. We wish them renewed love and committment to each other, and every marriage joy.

The first weekend of June will find our son graduating from high school. What a mile stone. Congratulations, Class of 2005. Enjoy the festivities of a graduate near you.

Prayer Needs

Please pray today for Mr. Fred Sindorf.
We have word that he fell while on a Maranatha project in Idaho.
The Report is that he broke his back and has head injuries. He is in surgery
on Wed 5/24. Pray that all goes well.

Thanks

My Face


Greetings to you, friend.
This pic was taken Oct of 04. I shaved my mustashe off on a recent mission trip...but other than that I look the same.

Opening

Just got back from our Northern California Conference Constituency. It was a fairly routine meeting, but it was conducted in a timely matter. It was the first meeting anyone could remember that got out at lunch, with no after meal meeting. I left Angwin about 2:30 p.m. and then headed for home. It's been a long day...but I just set up this blog. I will try this for a while and see if it is helpful in the life of our congregation.

God bless you

Pastor Kris
