Here's the latest news from the
Santa Maria Foursquare Church
DIGITAL BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2020
Hey, SM4 Family!
1. Sunday Service Info — Over the past several weeks we have seen many take part in the Sunday services from inside the sanctuary, outside in the courtyard, and online — and we still have room to grow! If you have been staying home in an effort to keep space available for other people, we want to let you know that we have room for YOU! And joining in is easy! At 9:30 am (English) or at 11:30 am (Spanish), come to the church and choose to sit inside or outside with social distancing. However, if you still feel more comfortable staying home, our live-streaming options are available on our website, Facebook, or YouTube. Plus, these videos remain available on-demand after services are over so you can watch whenever is best for you.
2. Important Updates —
- THIS Sunday evening, October 18 at 6 pm, please join us in praying for our country at our one-hour bilingual "Prayer for the Nation" gathering. Join either in person at the church or through any of our regular live-streaming platforms (website, Facebook, or YouTube).
- Saturday, October 31 from 5-8 pm is "Noche en Familia"! We’ll be giving away 1,000 pounds of candy to those in our church family and community who drive through our carnival-style event. If you haven’t signed up to volunteer yet, fill out the Virtual Connection Card on our website to let us know you'd like to be involved. And head over to our giving page online to donate to help us purchase all that candy! Use the “Special” designation online or write “Candy” on the memo line to give by check.
- October still has a few more weeks for you to join SM4 Sessions! Get the kids, youth, and adults involved with either online or in-person options! Check out all the options at www.sm4.org/sessions.
3. Family Highlights —
Say "Hello" to the Jamesons!
Hunter and Carla, with their son Thomas, joined the SM4 family 4 years ago during a time of transition for their family. Hunter now serves on the church council and Carla joins him serving as an usher on Sunday mornings. Thomas is very involved in the youth group and also serves in various ministries in the church. Carla spends time volunteering at CareNet, a crisis pregnancy center, and Thomas is a junior at Valley Christian Academy and loves being part of the football team! The Jamesons have been feeling the increasing urgency to pray during this time of pandemic and national turmoil and they look forward to joining the church in prayer at the “Prayer for the Nation” gathering this Sunday. Also, they would like to encourage everyone to register to vote. You can register online at www.registertovote.ca.gov through October 19. This family is passionate about caring for and praying for others and we are so blessed to have them as part of the Santa Maria Foursquare family!
