Oregon Adventist News: 3 November 2019

  • Just a reminder: associate-churches need to sign contracts for pastoral services with Oregon Adventist Ministries, 3ABN-Partners, or the WWU School of Theology by 1730 Monday, 2 December 2019.
  • Don't forget this weekend's seminar on "Reaching Out to Grandchildren" at the Beaverton SDA Church will also be carried live at its branch campuses: Beaverton-Southwest, Hillsboro, Milwaukie, and Troutdale.
  • Good news! Local planners have signed-off on construction of the new swim center at the Gladstone Adventist Convention Center. Not only will this provide even more recreational opportunities for Portland Adventist Academy at its new location, but it will help us expand the programs offered by Big Lake Day Camp. (And yes, the pool will be closed to the public on Sabbath.)
  • Pastors: please check "job openings" carefully before you bid on any vacancies listed. (We don't want to repeat last month's unfortunate incident in Medford.)
  • The live webinar on "Praise Bands: Time to Move On?" has been rescheduled to 0900 Sunday, 8 December 2019.
  • This quarter's House Church Jamboree will be Sabbath, 4 January 2010 at the Gladstone Adventist Convention Center, the Eugene Civic Center, and the Grants Pass SDA Church. Pastor Tunde Umar's topic: "Romans -- Predestined to Freedom." (Check the Conference wiki to see who's bringing what for the potluck.)
  • Monday is the deadline to sign-up for January's Spanish-language intensive at the Milo Retreat Center. This seminar will fulfill second-language requirements for Senior-pastor and Administrator certification.
  • Found: a black raincoat left behind at last week's "Women in Ministry Retreat" -- call the Conference AI for details.
