Weekend Recap

What a weekend we had here at Sierra Bible Church and all around our great county!

In partnership with Love Tuolumne, our congregation dispersed all over the county from Friday through Sunday, from planting new cherry trees at Gold Rush Charter School to a putting in a frisbee golf course along the back side of the church property, painting at the Lambert Center and cleaning at Summerville Parent Nursery, and everything in between! We talked about joy last week, and what a joy it was to serve. Check out some of the photos below!

Aren't those incredible people doing life-giving projects! We sure hope you were able to participate and look forward to another county-wide serve day in 2023.

Join A Team Sunday met us wide-eyed and bushy tailed throughout the campus and on YouTube yesterday. Balloons led the way to tables as people signed up to serve. There are thousands (ok, maybe not thousands but there are a lot) of ways to give back here at Sierra Bible Church. One of those ways is through your time. If you've ever wondered how to get plugged in, wonder no more. We are trying to make serving at SBC seamless so please reach out to any of the pastoral or support staff, or even a current volunteer, and we'll throw you into the deep end ... I mean, we'll gently walk you through what to expect and champion you every step of the way. 😁

As if those two were not enough, we ended our weekend with Awana Awards. If you are not familiar with Awana, this is our Sunday evening program for Pre-Kindergarten to fourth graders. These students are encouraged to memorize Scripture using age-appropriate, guided curriculum. Led by our Kids Ministry Director, Rachel Tidwell and her superhero sidekick, Vicky Williams, along with the many volunteers (*wink, wink, this could be you), teens and adults build sweet relationships with these kiddos while playing games, hearing their stories, praying with them and encouraging their memorization efforts. Here are some photos from our awards night last night as each kid was recognized for their hard work and dedication:

Cubbies (Pre-K)

Sparks (K-2nd grades)

T&T (3rd-4th grades)

Thanks for tuning in with us today on the blog. We really hope you are as encouraged as we have been seeing the faces of so many who experience the goodness of Jesus through the hands and feet of His people. Thank YOU for being one of those people. Thank you for serving in your family, amongst your co-workers, with students and kids, with college students, in the prison, in our hospitals and care facilities. Thank you for reaching out to those in need. Thank you for bringing meals. Thank you for each and every way you give of yourself. You are an incredible human and we praise the Lord for you.

If you were unable to attend on Sunday, you can watch on YouTube here. And as always, if you would like to speak to a pastor, please call us at (209) 532-1381.
