We are having an organizational meeting on Thursday at 6:30pm for those who will be volunteering. If you are volunteering, it would be helpful if you could come. Please share the pictures of the brochure (see above) on your social media feed or email it out to friends and family and neighbors.

Roger Walter, DMin Lead Pastor Adventist Community Church of Vancouver
This has been a very strange and hard year. For everyone.
Your pastors are not immune. Yet they have worked hard to find new ways to continue leading this church during something none of us has ever experienced.
THIS MONTH, it’s our chance to say “Thank You” for all they have done, are doing, and will continue to do for our church family.
This letter was shared with the pastors in front of the church family on Sabbath, and we are sharing it with you here now:
Pastor Roger and Gail,
Pastor John and Joan,
Pastor Ryan and Bridget,
October is officially Pastor Appreciation Month! And we want all of you to know how much we appreciate and, might we add, love you. We are so blessed as a church with our pastoral staff.
This has been an unusual year to say the least! But you have led us through it and for that we are thankful. How can we say “thank you” for all you have done? Our gift will arrive at each of your homes in November, then again in December, and in January and monthly for a full year! This way you will be reminded monthly of how much we care for and love you.
You may have already guessed by now that we have enrolled each family in Harry and David’s Fruit of the Month Club! We hope you will enjoy the delicious variety of fruits that will be delivered directly to you at home! Please know that along with these gifts we are sending our prayers and asking God to bless your sweet families. We are committed as a church to support you and pray for you.
Thank you again for all you do for our church family.
Thank you for making our church God centered!
Your friends in God’s love.
