Tri-Cities Adventist Churches Pastoral Team

March 21st  at 11:00 am

Come worship ONLINE with us! 
Due to the rapid spread of the COVID-19 Virus and our sincere desire to protect the health of our church families and the community, we are officially postponing all of our church services and activities until further notice. We are transitioning instead to live streaming and online communications.

We are providing online services put on by the 4 area Adventist Churches beginning this Sabbath, March 21. Online services will be accessible through the church's website at  Pastor Sergio is out of town at the moment so please feel free to contact Len Harms at (509) 947-4643 or the church Secretary at (928) 241-3153 if you have any questions or concerns. Please know that you are each very precious to us and you are in our prayers! For more info/updates  CLICK HERE.
Since we are unable to fellowship together at church until further notice the “Visitation Team” will be checking in with many of you each week just to keep our church family in touch and make sure we are all well and our special needs being met. If you have need for special prayer, are hospitalized, need someone to pick up groceries, run errands, or pick up meds please call Sue Schock who is chairman of the visitation group or Paul Daniel who is heading up the special needs group. Continued prayers for our church family during this troublesome time.
Your ability to talk to God to grow your faith and trust in Him is a high priority especiallly as we all navigate these uncharted and unprecidented times. God wants to give you confidence in his love for you. He wants to calm you and comfort you!

God hears and answers your prayers. It is good to talk to Him authentically throughout your day! Remember that He knows what you need and yet his greatest desire is to hear you share needs with Him.

Prayer is the opening of the heart to God as to a friend. Not that it is necessary in order to make known to God what we are, but in order to enable us to receive Him. Prayer does not bring God down to us but brings us up to Him. --EGW Review and Herald book IV p.36

Unceasing prayer is the unbroken union of the soul with God, so that life from God flows into our life; and from our life, purity and holiness flow back to God. --EGW Signs of the Times book II p.140

We all have times when we need someone to stand with us in prayer. Please do not hesitate to ask for prayer partners to pray for your request or to pray directly with you. Please feel free to submit a request for prayer or to ask for someone to call and pray with you. Our pastors and Prayer Team are here for you.

Help your child thrive during the Pandemic.
So many decisions
and adjustments being made to protect our communities from Covid-19, we do not want to overlook the emotional toll this can take on a child. Children will react and follow the verbal and nonverbal reactions of the adults closest to them. Because elementary, middle-school, and high-school students do not process information in the same way as adults, they are filtering these emotions and reactions much differently. This can lead to internalizing fears or stress overload. It is important to limit your child’s inputs to true information appropriate for their age-level and to provide positive, reassuring support.

We at the Upper Columbia Conference are hoping to partner with you in this journey by providing you with the following trustworthy RESOURCES.
