April 30, 2014Ridgeview Church
Ridgeview Church has been compared to the Star Wars bar scene. An eclectic mix of Valley Centerites, some seemingly from galaxies far, far away. It includes music from classic hymns to contemporary Christian Rock, and sermons that are entertaining, thought-provoking, and usually not boring. This Sunday Pastor Bill will be speaking on "reasons for hope." If you've lost hope, perhaps you'll find it at Ridgeview. Ridgeview Church is a great place to make new friends, reconnect with old ones, and discover God's purpose for your life. There's something for everyone, from an award winning preschool, to after school programs and youth groups. There are also a few different home study groups for men, women, and couples of all ages. Call (760) 751-9890 or go to www.rc4u.org for further info.

Sunday School and babysitting are available at the 10 a.m. service.
Every Thursday at 10 a.m., people gather at St. Francis for weekly Bible study and prayer. Newcomers are welcome to join in the Thursday fellowship, prayer, and the study of God's Word. The Episcopal Church welcomes all to celebrate and share Christ's love for his people.
Starting with Easter, the Paschal Candle has been lit each Sunday. This tall white candle reminds us of Christ's banishment of death and darkness and that Christ is always with us.
