Worship in Elkins on July 28
Crossways students will be joining us for worship this Sunday, July 28, so our locations will be changed. Youth class will be in Elkins auditorium with Jeff Walling facilitating. The adult class will be in PC 188 with Sara Barton teaching. Worship will be in Elkins Auditorium!

From Joseph Dzamesi in Ghana
We are happy to announce the baptism of two students into Christ. We rejoice with two first-year students who gave their lives to Jesus through Baptism. Vivian Nudowu is a first-year General Arts two student and Ephraim Agbeko is a first-year General Arts one student. They both accepted Jesus on Thursday 18th July 2019. It is always exciting to see young students commit their lives to Jesus. As a school, we continue to utilize all our spiritual programs so that we can give students every opportunity to learn about God. Please keep our new brother and sister in your prayers.

Eric Wilson to continue preaching
The elders were very happy to announce last Sunday that Eric Wilson has agreed to continue to preach for the UCC on Sunday mornings through July 2020. We especially appreciate his willingness to preach for us given his already significant time and energy commitment to Pepperdine. He and Sharita are a special part of our congregation and we are thankful for their service!
