The church prayer meeting on Tuesday, July 26, will be held in the small groups.
District Meetings on July 31
On Lord’s Day, July 31, the church in Anaheim will meet in person by district. Each district, including all the saints of all languages, will meet in the respective meeting places. An option to meet on Zoom will be available. The saints who meet on Zoom will NOT meet by district but will meet by language. Zoom meeting information can be found in the small group announcements. Until the children’s meeting service is fully restored, all children who attend the in-person meetings should be accompanied by one of the parents.
Precautions for In-person Meetings
Those who have any symptoms of a respiratory or other contagious illness, and those who have been in recent contact with someone who has such symptoms, should not attend the in-person meetings but should continue to meet on Zoom. Currently, a high percentage of the counties in California, including Orange County, are in the “high” COVID-19 level. Consistent with current CDC guidelines, we strongly recommend that those who attend the in-person meetings wear a mask while they are indoors. This is for the protection of all the saints.
Chinese-speaking Perfecting Training Open Meeting
The final meeting of the Chinese-speaking Perfecting Training on Lord’s Day, July 31, will be translated into English and be open to the English-speaking saints. The subject of the training is “The New Testament Priesthood.” The meeting on July 31 will begin at 10:00 a.m., and the English translation will be available. Please see the small group announcements for the Zoom information.

Recording of the Meeting with Parents and Serving Ones related to the Resumption of Children’s Meeting
A recording of the meeting on June 27 with the parents and serving ones related to the resumption of children’s meeting is available at children.churchinanaheim.org/fellowships. We encourage all parents and serving ones to listen to this important fellowship.
Summer School of Truth Recordings
Recordings of songs and special fellowships during this past Summer School of Truth are now available for all the saints and young people to enjoy. Visit: yp.churchinanaheim.org/ssot/.
Background Checks for Serving Ones
As we look toward restarting in-person children’s and young people’s meetings, all saints who desire to serve, including those who have previously served, are required by state law to submit a new application and request a background check through ProtectMyMinistry.org. Links to the background check request and application can be found at yp.churchinanaheim.org and children.churchinanaheim.org.
YP Bible Reading Schedule
The young people will continue reading 1 & 2 Kings. Parents and young people are encouraged to read together. The reading for this week is 2 Kings, chapters 24 through 25. The complete reading schedule is posted at anaheimyp.org/Bible-Reading.
Statement from the Elders Regarding COVID-19 Protective Restrictions
Resumption of in-person meetings on the Lord’s Day began on April 10 and will progress in a gradual way. The elders will continue to consider the developing situation related to the pandemic and will proceed with the safety of the saints in view.

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.
