SC Clarion

Weekly Staying Connected, Edition 2, August 2

From Majors Ruwethin

Wow, time is flying! It's hard to believe that today marks the start of our fourth week in Santa Clara. We thank you so much for your encouragement and help you've provided to our family already! We know transitions are always hard - getting to know people - their personalities, voices, how they work, text, their views, communicate .. smell, chew - but God says we're supposed to love each other ... so your stuck with us until we're moved. :)

Again, we ask for your patience as we continue in conversations with you and hear your heart for ministry. We will start connecting the dots to help support you in this new season - getting back to each other after such a hard season will take some work - so we'll take time to pray for God's direction with you.

We hope you'll find this newsletter a great tool to keep up and share with other's what's happening. God's way is best and we thank Him for crossing our paths at this time!


We are now back in the chapel!! We thank you to everyone who helped - especially to Terry, Bram, Braden, Rich, Tino and the ARC men who stayed until the last detail was reset.

We also want to remind everyone about the potluck after church! Please sign up for what you will be bringing to share. Volunteers to help serve are also very welcome.

A big change starting Tuesday is that masks are now required indoors again regardless of vaccination status. Here is some information if you're interested in reading more.
