Ten Commandments

We are continuing a sermon series at church on the Ten Commandments. We just covered the 3rd and 4th commandments, and it provides an opportunity to highlight each commandment from a New Testament perspective. We are saved by Grace through faith...but saved to obey Jesus as not only Savior but as LORD. The Commandments are still God's standard of right and wrong living. This Sabbath I will cover Commandments 5-7.

A handout, with selected Bible text given there, provides an opportunity for people to take the main sermon home with them, and study some more certain Bible passages.

The Ten Commandments are found in Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5

Graduation

RAA Academy Graduation took place over the weekend of June 2-4. There was a good number of graduates for our small school, and about 50% of the class come from families from the Redding SDA Church. We are proud of them all, and our family had a special interest in this years graduation as our son, Tim was among the class.

One graduate, Peter, received a nice scholarship from the school, because of his being a national merit finalist. It was the most anyone could rmember a student receiving. Over $10,000. Congratulations, Peter. Good Luck to you.
