We invite you to discover and explore — in a community of adults who are eager to learn and hear your insights. Express your interest… or suggest a new series!
During the program year (Sept-June), we offer two ongoing programs for adults in addition to our special season learning opportunities.
Sunday Worship July 9 – Aug. 27:
Summer Sunday School:
Hear two former internees, Yuki and Mits Kawamoto, still living in San Diego, share their stories with us. Yuki and Mits will talk about how life changed when their families were taken first to the Santa Anita Assembly Center, and later to the internment camp at Poston, Arizona. Stories about day to day life in the camps, as well as the attitudes of their families and friends, will help you understand what it was like to be taken away from the life they had known, and to live among more Japanese people than they’d ever seen before! Read flyer for more info.
Angie Solom, our youth group leader, will be stepping down in June. Expecting her second child, Angie has worked this side gig in addition to a full-time job for the County and she’s looking forward to more time with her family and little ones. We will honor Angie’s seven years of service on Wednesday, June 7, 8 to 8:30 PM in the Youth Hall. We welcome folks who want to celebrate Angie’s contributions — even parents and families of youth who have graduated or are no longer active – to join us for our tribute. Enrique Dudley will continue to serve as a leader of our youth group. Marg and Enrique will be looking at the current format and welcome your suggestions as we continuously tailor the group to meet the needs of our youth and families.
Angie has brought a deep love of youth, keen organizational skills, and unflagging energy and enthusiasm to our ministry. She embraced sleepless lock-ins and campouts, she championed fun and stress-relieving outings, and no one worked harder to rally youth for posada, egg hunts, and concession stands. She co-taught Our Whole Lives, she shepherded kids to the National Youth Event, and organized many service projects. We are indebted to Angie for her service to our church.
