PLEASE NOTE: Regular single church service on Sabbath, February 27
We’ll have Zoom Sabbath School at 9:00 a.m., regular Sabbath School at 10:00 a.m., and regular church at 11:15 a.m. The UCA students are holding their own special services in the dorms this Sabbath. (Zoom SS members: 9:00 a.m. meetings have a different link than 11:00 a.m. meetings, so be sure you’re using the correct link for the time you’re meeting.)
Church phone number is up!
The church phone number is up and running in the church office. It’s (509) 245-3687. You can now leave a voicemail outside of Lorna’s office hours and she’ll be able to retrieve it and get back to you. What a blessing.
“Sermons” menu is back up here on the website
It’s a work in progress, but right now you can click on Sermons from the menu bar at the top and choose from a gallery of our available video sermons.
Sabbath School secretary
We could sure use one, starting as soon as possible! This is the person who picks up offering from Sabbath School classes, orders supplies for Sabbath School divisions, etc. If you’re interested and can take over early (as soon as possible), please let Pastor Wilfley or Lorna Hartman know.
Listen to Pastor Kevin Wilfley on 104.9 this month

Religious Liberty Campaign
JANUARY 23 kicked off the 2021 Religious Liberty Campaign to be held from January 23 – March 31.
Liberty Magazine says, “Ultimately, God calls us to preserve religious freedom not only for the sake of Seventh-day Adventists, but for all people and institutions of faith.”
Testimonies for the Church reads, “For when we promote religious freedom for all we in turn open the door for evangelism to flourish throughout America and the world” (vol. 5, p. 713).
Ten percent of the funds raised through this campaign return here to support religious liberty work in the Pacific Northwest. View editor Lincoln Steed’s video for the 2021 Religious Liberty campaign on Liberty Magazine’s YouTube channel. Please prayerfully support the cause of religious liberty today and throughout this essential campaign.
Zoom Sabbath School (ongoing announcement)
Jim Kilmer teaches Sabbath School class on Zoom at 11:00 a.m. opening at 10:45 a.m.
His class meets at 11:00 when we’re holding two church services (so you can also attend regular church at 9:00), but meets at 9:00 a.m. when we’re holding only one church service over breaks. You can email Jim if you need help, and his phone number is in the bulletin. Information about this class is also available on our Facebook page.
Summary: Zoom Sabbath School will meet at 9:00 a.m. during breaks (one church service) and at 11:00 a.m. when member church is at 9:00 a.m. and youth church is at 11:15 (two services). The Zoom room will open 15 minutes early for login and pre-class chat.
What do you enjoy doing for ministry?
Let the nominating committee know using the interest form. This will greatly shorten the amount of work and time it takes the nominating committee to complete the church role process. Honestly, does anyone really love making or receiving a bunch of nominating committee calls? We all enjoy the blessings of ministering and serving in a way that’s meaningful and uses our gifts.

The Farm at UCA has delicious fresh produce
Your destination for fresh lettuce varieties and other fresh produce is thefarmatuca.org. You won’t want to miss out on this healthy fresh food. Did you know in the longer term, they’ll be adding berries and cherries? Or that The Farm at UCA (also on Instagram) is partnering with UCA’s Artisan Bakery (opening soon) to sell at The Farm’s roadside stand? In the future, a variety of fruits and vegetables will be grown on the land around the greenhouse.
