Use of Southern California Blending Center at Oak Glen
During the pandemic the brothers have been working to improve the accommodation buildings at Oak Glen. Until it returns to normal use, Oak Glen has been opened for use by families for family retreats and by serving saints, full-time teams, retired saints, or families who homeschool their children. For a limited time Oak Glen is open for use also as a wedding venue. Please see the Church News for further information.
Serving at the Bibles for America Distribution Center
The BfA Distribution Center (DC) has moved to the LSM campus. Those who are burdened and would like to be a candidate to serve as a volunteer at the DC can apply at bfa.org/dc-volunteer. A short video on the BfA operation at the DC is provided at youtube.com/watch?v=KPy1e-5ozWI. This is a wonderful opportunity to serve in spreading God’s interpreted Word to the hungry and seeking ones.
Three-Year Bible Reading Schedule
A weekly schedule is provided in the Church News for the saints to read through the text (without footnotes) of the entire Bible in three years. Each day’s readings will require 8 to 10 minutes. To keep track of their progress, the saints can download a schedule with check boxes from churchinanaheim.org/bible-reading.

A New Way to Give Online to the Church in Anaheim
A new way of giving online to the church through the PayPal Giving Fund (PPGF) is now available. Donations given through the PPGF will be charged no fee; 100% of the donated amount will go to the church. Please visit churchinanaheim.org/donations for information.
NOTE: unless you desire to remain anonymous, please check the box next to “Share my name and email with this charity” on the PPGF donation page. If the box is unchecked, the church will not know the donor’s identity. This is especially important if you are using the PPGF to pay a conference or training donation.
