Beyond the Walls b2s web

The Personal Ministries Outreach Team would like to thank each and every member who has participated in and/or donated toward our previous Beyond the Walls service events. Because of your sacrifices we have been able to make a tremendous impact on our community this year through prayer, love, and SERVICE!

Beyond the Walls is coming back on September 6! Who’s excited?! While we will offer many of the same service opportunities you’ve heard about before, we are focusing our efforts especially on a Back-2-School Supplies Fair & Ice Cream Party at 3 public schools in our area: Ridgecrest, Cesar Chavez and Chillum Elementary Schools. We hope you will 1) become a Back-2-School sponsor by donating $10 per student, and 2) sign-up to volunteer with the supplies distribution or some other Beyond the Walls outreach project.

Below is a list of the service opportunities you can pick from for Sabbath, Sept. 6. Sign up to volunteer TODAY!

LLB 101 : I liken myself to a lightbulb -- when the power is turned on, all you can see is the radiance of the light that is emitted. You see my compassion, ambition, and charisma ... But when the power is turned off you recognize that its just a light bulb. Simply put... I am nothing without God, but with Him I know no limits!!
