Tower Tidings - Week of April 29, 2018

Peace Officers Sunday - May 6th

We are planning a Peace Officers Recognition Sunday in Church on May 6th. Our past Chief Garcia, our present Chief Catren, and our Mayor Paul Foster plan to be in attendance to help us honor those who serve in our various police forces. Please share with friends and neighbors about this service, and especially invite those who serve, or have served. We will only have one service at 10am on that day.

Mayor's Prayer Breakfast - May 3rd

We invite our church members to join First Congregational at the Mayor's Prayer Breakfast held at the University of Redlands on Thursday, May 3rd, 2018 (The National Day of Prayer) at 7:00a. Cost is $12 per seat and includes a continental breakfast. To make a reservation, please call the church office.

Apologies to Gilbert & Sullivan - May 4, 5, & 6
Apologies to Gilbert & Sullivan performances are rescheduled to May 4th and 5th at 7:00p, and May 6th at 3:00p. Our misadventure-prone characters—Phoebe, Avery, Reginald, and Marjorie—have wandered out into the countryside and have become lost. We will bring them home soon, so you can hear their hilarious story. We can't wait to have you join us in a few weeks!
Women's Book Club - May 20th
The women’s book club is reading “Love Does”, a NY Times bestseller, written by Bob Goff. Light and fun, unique and profound, the lessons drawn from Bob's life and attitude are irresistible and inspirational. Whether or not you’ve joined us previously, you’re welcome to read the book and come to our next discussion on May 20 at 11:15 in the church library.

Dear choral members, please mark your calendars! The Choir will be meeting for rehearsals at 7:00p from now until the end of June.

We'd like to invite you to come to a very special experience on Sundays at 8:30 AM in the Lounge. Every week through Sunday May 27, Jeff Lewis, Director of Mobilization at Cal Baptist University, will be teaching a series entitled The Grand Narrative: The Story of God. We hope you will come and explore making this course a part of your christian learning this spring.
