    Happy Thanksgiving to All God's People

    Thanksgiving is all about friends and family—and is rich with tradition. At our tables at home and our potlucks at church, we’ll be able to find all the traditional dishes, special family recipes, menu mainstays, new versions of old favorites, recipes for new things that may or may not be brought back another year, ethnic dishes we've just discovered, and novel products that get tasted and tested. Thanksgiving is delicious.

    Thanksgiving is also about worship and prayer together. Across our great Union, in many different languages and in many different ways, our church family will come together this Thanksgiving—to celebrate God’s abundant gifts to us! And to express our gratitude with thankful hearts! Thanksgiving is all about God’s grace and care for us.

    At the heart of Thanksgiving is just that: "Thanks-giving." A time of great gratitude. A time of joyous expression of our thankfulness.

    “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the lands!
    Serve the Lord with gladness!
    Come into his presence with singing!

    Know that the Lord is God!
    It is he that made us, and we are his;
    we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

    Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
    and his courts with praise!
    Give thanks to him, bless his name!

    For the Lord is good;
    his steadfast love endures for ever,
    and his faithfulness to all generations.”

    Psalm 100, RSV

    All God's People, Episode 342

    In this week's episode:
    Maranatha to Build 200 Sheds; New EMS Station for Paradise; Fire Preparedness; October Recorder; Breast Cancer Awareness Month

    Maranatha to Build 200 Sheds

    Almost one year ago, the Camp Fire swept over the Paradise community, devastating more than 20,000 acres, and leaving very little unscathed. Some families and individuals who lost their homes are currently living in campers and RV’s, with no space to store their belongings. In coordination with the Northern California Conference leadership, Maranatha Volunteers International is being asked to assist the Paradise Adventist Church with a community outreach project. Maranatha volunteers will assist in constructing 200 storage sheds for members of this community, and they invite you to join them, starting November 5.
    Learn how you can get involved:

    New EMS Base Station for Paradise

    As a result of a grant from the Butte Strong Fund, Paradise will soon have increased medical transport services. Adventist Health reports that since last December there has been a 30% increase in ambulance runs for Paradise. Right now the closest ambulance service is in Magalia. The North Valley Community Foundation awarded a $49,000 grant to Adventist Health from its Butte Strong Fund. That builds on a $21,000 donation by the Adventist Health Feather River Foundation. This money helps support the funds needed for the new EMS base station.

    Fire Prevention

    Every October, Adventist Community Services takes a week to focus on fire prevention and the resources produced by the National Fire Protection Association. Numerous resources are available on the ACS website, on, and the NFPA website for helping families and older adults be prepared in case of a fire emergency. The links to these resources are below. And, if you’re interested, check out the Introduction to Disaster Preparedness DVD that was produced by our ACS team here in the Pacific Union Conference! It’s available through AdventSource.

    October Recorder Highlights

    The October Recorder is in your homes and is filled with articles and beautiful nature photographs on the theme of Reverence. James Ponder, a writer, editor, and photographer from Loma Linda, loves how the land and sky reveal the creativity and power of the mind of God. His photographs grace the front cover and illustrate our Portraits of Reverence this month. Be sure to check out one of our newest features—the Newsdesk section (pg 45-51). You can download the Recorder to your mobile device from the QR code located on pg. 3. Or read it online via the link below. The Recorder continues to bless and inspire our members and their families in the nearly 76,000 households it reaches each month.

    Breast Cancer Awareness Month

    October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, which, according to the Center for Disease Control, is the most common cancer found in women. One of the easiest ways to promote early detection, and therefore increase the chance of a positive outcome after diagnosis, is the self-exam. Adventist Health has wonderful resources online that will help you learn the five ways for you to screen for breast cancer at home:

    There are also stories of courageous women who are surviving and thriving with breast cancer.

    And there are several practical tips on supporting your loved one with breast cancer.

    Highlights from the 2019 Student Leadership Conference

    Student leaders from 34 junior and senior academies spent the last weekend of September at Leoni Meadows camp in Grizzly Flats, California. Their aim? To learn how to better love, serve, and lead their campuses. This year's theme for the conference was “Leadership lessons from Nehemiah.”

    Over the course of the weekend, group facilitators helped students discuss how they want to lead, what they want to accomplish, and ways to help their classmates get involved and grow together. Leadership groups from the different academies spent time working on teambuilding through different outdoor and indoor challenges, games, and activities.

    In addition to fun activities, attendees also gathered at the Leoni Lodge to sing and worship together.

    This week, Gisselle Asij, senior at Newbury Park Adventist Academy and the ASB president for the 2019-2020 school year, joined us as our guest host of All God's People! Watch this week's episode to learn more about the great things students learned at this annual conference, and click the link below to learn more about Adventist Education in the Pacific Southwest.
