Join us on Friday, June 28th to help pack the supplies for the refugees into baskets. Then, a group from our church family will be distributing supply baskets on June 29th. All hands welcome!

Supplies Needed for Sacramento Refugees - Through 6.28.19 We need hygiene items, cleaning supplies, and homemade cookies/treats to distribute to refugees. We'll collect all non-perishable items in large canisters located at the entrance of the Crossing campus through June 28. Please deliver all cookies and treats to the church between 5-7 pm on June 28.

New Class: Good News for Latter Day Saints

New Class: Good News for Latter Day Saints

GospelforLDS_Email.png

In 1930, Joseph Smith Jr. first began to share his "restored gospel". Though millions now give allegiance to Smith's teachings, they present a false gospel based on human effort rather than God's grace in Christ. In this 2-week class, David Grant equips us to share real good news with our Mormon neighbors.

Classes will be on Two Sundays at the Crossing Campus in Seminar One:

June 23rd, 9:15-10:30am

June 30th, 9:15-10:30am
