Our new UCC praise team has been preparing for the new and returning students to arrive and have three new songs for us to learn. These are songs that Pepperdine students are familiar with, and we want to know them, too!  Our praise team will lead all three this Sunday in Stauffer Chapel, but here are links so you can practice these beautiful songs prior to Sunday:
Good Good Father
King of My Heart
Reckless Love

Last Sunday for Summer in Stauffer!
On Sunday we will meet one final time for our summer in Stauffer Chapel. Dusty Breeding will teach the adult class at 9am followed by our worship assembly at 10:15am. The sermon text is Judges 17-18 and is titled, “Right & Wrong.”

Kickoff Sunday Dessert Reception
Please make plans to bring plenty of finger food desserts to share as we welcome incoming students to our worship services on Sunday, August 26.  The receptions will take place immediately after the worship services (note: we will store the desserts left over after the morning service for the evening reception).
