Young Adults to Pepperdine Soccer at UCLA
Last year about a dozen young adults went to UCLA to watch Pepperdine women’s soccer take on the #1 (until we got there!) Bruins and walked over to Diddy Riese for ice cream/cookies afterward (picture attached). Well, there is a rematch this year at 7pm on Friday, September 7, so we will be there again to cheer on the Waves! And eat more ice cream and cookies!!

There will be a big basket at the right door facing Elkins for School on Wheels school supplies this Sunday.

Peace & Justice Ministry
Contact al.sturgeon@pepperdine.edu if you are interested in being a part of a church ministry that engages in regular conversations about peace and justice issues in our community (and world) and takes action. We hope to launch this “peace & justice ministry” in the next few weeks once we have a core group identified. All are invited and welcomed.

Please RSVP: Fall Semester Adult Bible Class (August 26 – December 16)
In what way is the Bible a guide for the church in its organization, worship, and mission? The members of UCC represent a wide array of backgrounds and approaches to Bible study, and it is critical for us to better understand one another as we collectively approach God’s Word for guidance both now and in the future.  The elders have requested that the adult education program focus on this sole topic for the fall semester, and all college student and resident adult members of the UCC are encouraged to be a member of this class.  To that end, members (and interested non-members) are asked to RSVP and commit to the class, which will include (i) praying for the class; (ii) attending the class; and (iii) maintaining a weekly journal about the class. There will be an introductory class in Fireside Room at 9am on August 26, but subsequent classes will be in Payson Library (Kresge Reading Room) beginning on September 2. Please RSVP to al.sturgeon@pepperdine.edu.

Angela’s Baptism; Important Fall Semester Adult Bible Class Information; Bible Class Teachers Announced (UCC Family News, 8-16-18)

All smiles following Angela’s baptism!

Angela’s Baptism!
Angela Maiorca was baptized by her mom and dad at Patty Atkisson’s house last Sunday! We are so proud of Angela and celebrate her faith decision alongside her wonderful family.

Fall Semester Adult Bible Class (August 26 – December 16)
In what way is the Bible a guide for the church in its organization, worship, and mission? The authority of Scripture is a core tenet of our faith heritage, and since the members of UCC represent a wide array of backgrounds and approaches to Bible study, it is critical for us to better understand one another as we collectively approach God’s Word for guidance both now and in the future.  The elders have requested that the adult education program focus on this sole topic for the fall semester, and all college student and resident adult members of the UCC are encouraged to be a member of this class.  To that end, members (and interested non-members) are asked to RSVP and commit to the class, which will include (i) praying for the class; (ii) attending the class; and (iii) maintaining a weekly journal about the class.

This Sunday (August 19)
-Our morning worship will continue in Elkins Auditorium at 10:15am this Sunday. The sermon will conclude the series on the Book of Judges and is titled, “Steadfast Love.” At the end of the service Paul Jones will provide a quarterly budget update.

Time to Rally; New Website Launched; Return to Elkins; Adult Bible Class in AC 290; Servant Leaders Meeting; Wedding Shower Invite (UCC Family News, 8-9-18)

A picture from Jody Sturgeon atop Mount Whitney! Our team of mountain climbers returns today from their adventure!

Time to Meet the Challenge
As Regan said last Sunday, it is New Year’s Eve for our church family! New students and new Pepperdine employees will arrive soon, and we pray for numerical momentum for our church family in the year to come. Our Sunday morning attendance has declined rather dramatically each year over the past several academic years—the average fell from 326 just four years ago to 206 this past year, and that was before several wonderful families moved away this summer. In addition, we are well under budgeted contributions for 2018—to be specific, over $44,000 behind in just over half the year. But we do not lose heart! As has happened over the life of this wonderful congregation, God has provided and inspired us to step up to face challenges. Please join us in prayer and in action as we move into the year ahead with confident expectation!

New Website Launched!
Huge thanks to Cecily Breeding for her fantastic work in redesigning our church website! The beautiful new site is located at www.uccmalibu.com – bookmark it and spread the word!

Updates for Sunday (August 12)
-Our morning worship returns to Elkins Auditorium at 10:15am this Sunday when we are pleased to welcome a large number of student leaders on campus for training.
