Traffic on Gold Flat Road between Granholm Lane and Hollow Way will be limited to one lane between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. this month, as the Nevada Irrigation District installs a water main.

The district advises motorists to expect delays of up to 20 minutes. The work, which began Wednesday, is expected to be completed by the end of the month.

Foothill Church

Pastor Marvin Talamantez of Foothill Church will be performing water baptisms at Rollins Lake on Sunday, in the afternoon following the Sunday services. This is the third annual Gathering of Foothill Church at Rollins Lake, where members and guests get together for food, fellowship and fun, followed by a time of reflection and dedication by water baptism. Those interested in being baptized for the first time or rededicating their lives are encouraged to contact Pastor Marvin Talamantez by Friday at Foothill Church, 272-8511.

Pastor Marvin will be starting a new series called, “Pursuing the Will of God,” a study of the life of Abraham. Sunday Service is 10 a.m.

Women’s Connection

There are many opportunities at Lake of the Pines for women to connect with each other and deepen friendships. Laura Clark will bring to women attending the monthly Women’s Connection luncheon an idea for a special gift to craft and present to a friend, a memory to build and a connection to strengthen.

Crystal Trott, a real estate broker who spends time in local civic organizations, will share how she found the bottom line of peace and security. Crystal is a 25- year member of the Native Daughters of the Golden West.

Women’s Connection is sponsored by Stonecroft Ministries, which is international, non-denominational and not church related. The clubhouse luncheon will be from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. today, and the cost is $14 inclusive.

Reservations must be made in advance of the luncheon as well as arrangements for complimentary childcare.

For reservations, call Gail at 268-7698 or Ginger at 269-1629. For more information on monthly Prayer Connections, call Sally at 878-2226, or to learn about weekly home Bible studies in your neighborhood, call Donnie at 268-8786.

Word-A-Live Family Church

We at Word-A-Live! Family Church welcome all denominations to join every Sunday at 10 a.m. for contemporary Christian worship. Pastor Mike Chipchase and Pastor Sandra Chipchase, both ordained ministers of Christian International, peak with authority and power as the Holy Spirit guides them with the Word of God.

July and August are sabbatical months for the church, with Sunday morning services only and no Wednesday night classes. Also, these are the months that Home Group Fellowships and Bible studies get together, one on Tuesday at 7 p.m. and another on Wednesday at 7 p.m. Call the church for the two different locations if you are interested.

The church is located at 10528 Spenceville Road, across the street from the fire station in Penn Valley, 432-9155.
