a God who knows you by name,
Who knows your heart, who knows your mind, and
Who wants to be in a relationship with you.

"Welcome All Artists!"

Even though the Womens' Retreat this Fall has been postponed, we are still holding the "Womens' Art Show for Advent" and asking that you share your many talents to express the feeling and idea of Advent. We’re sure that Advent this year will hold a special meaning for all of us. Kathy Fritschi will be displaying our creations on October 1, 2020, in the Parish Hall.

All mediums are welcome, paper, canvas, clay, handwork, carving, sculpting, photography, poetry….. any of the many ways we express ourselves. Kathy is doing a portrait of herself and her favorite things, Sylvia and I are doing a fabric art piece, and Betsy may write a song.

Please let Kathy know how you want to participate. Contact her at (530) 651-4056 or t.fritschi@comcast.net.

We hold you all in prayer, Leslyn

Jacob and Jarrod!

Debbie Lightfoot’s grandsons, Jacob and Jarrod Bari, are members of the Southside Topnotch 4-H Club (Jacob for 7 years and Jarrod for 5) and will show and sell the animals they raised this year at the El Dorado County 4-H/FFA Junior Livestock Auction at the Fairgrounds coming up on July 10th.

This year Jacob raised a market steer and Jarrod raised a market goat. Their mom, Jeanette Bari, shared these photos.


This year the Auction will only be held online due to COVID-19, but you can watch the Sale (and bid, if you like) at susantaylorshowservices.com

Either way, let’s all wish Jacob and Jarrod great success and let them know how proud we are of their hard work!
