Sierra Presbyterian Church invites you to visit and experience one or more of our three Spirit Filled Services. “Living Beyond Myself” is the context of the sermons for the next few weeks. Giving of your time and abilities to others is the primary focus of Jesus’ messages. We had quite a turnout this past Sunday for our Ministry Faire, displaying areas in the church and in the community where the byword is “people helping people.” Our services are at 9 a.m. Traditional, 10:30 a.m. Contemporary and 5:15 p.m. CORE worship.

Upcoming events:

Thursday is Healing Prayer training in the Fellowship Hall at 5:30 p.m. For reservations, call the church at 265-3291. Pizza will be served. Saturday is a youth concert by the band, Creswell, only $3. And the following Saturday, Oct. 28, is our annual Harvest Fair from 5 to 7 p.m. Food, games and prizes for the whole family, including a children’s costume contest. (no scary or gory costumes, please).
