International Health Care Medical Missions Seminar – January 12 and 13
We wanted to let you know about a great seminar on medical missions this January in Dallas, TX. The seminar provides an excellent opportunity for you to learn more about medical missions while engaging with professionals of various health care occupations, students from other Christian colleges, and speakers who work in medical missions all over the world as well as domestically in the U.S. For more information, go to http://www.ihcf.net/seminar.php.

New Ways to Give 
We have added two easy and efficient ways to give to the church – Venmo and Zelle. For Venmo, load the Venmo app and use @universitychurch as the church’s account name. For Zelle, you can use your personal banking app or load Zelle app and use church@pepperdine.edu as the preferred email.
