Dear David,

The Chico area pastors met Wednesday to begin to strategize for the long haul in caring for their sister community of Paradise.  Everyone involved in this crisis is realizing more and more that this will be a marathon of epic proportions.  But while there are no quick answers or fixes here, we are thankful that God promises wisdom, strength, and empowerment as we ask.  And we are going to need a lot of it for this marathon!

As we mentioned before, Bayside Church of Granite Bay (Sacramento) is partnering with Paradise Alliance Church and the CPD in meeting needs especially for the PAC staff.  Wednesday morning the entire staff was invited to join Bayside for their staff meeting in which the PAC staff was brought up front and prayed for, and given gift cards.  The Bayside family of churches took up a special offering on Sunday for Paradise and raised $112,000 that day with more coming in.  A big THANK YOU to Bayside for their Kingdom mindedness in serving the Body of Christ!


Quite frankly we are still figuring things out at this point, but the constant is always the same.  Our friends in Paradise and Chico need your prayers!  And God is in control!


Throughout the week, there have been so many amazing volunteers coming to the NC Chico evacuation center.  They do need help, so if you want to come and volunteer, please sign up on this Google Doc. You can click here to view the volunteer schedule and add your name. The Google Doc is also posted on the Neighborhood Church of Chico Facebook Page .  Go to the "Posts" tab to the left, and you can open the Google Doc to see when help is needed most.  You can also get to it from their website,, as the home screen scrolls, you will see a button "Evacuation Center Volunteer Signup Click Here."  Since there is essentially no town to go back to, we really have no idea how long this will go on.  


As we have shared, of course they need your financial help.  You can give directly to either church, sending it straight to Neighborhood Church of Chico at 2801 Notre Dame Blvd Chico, CA 95928, or to the Central Pacific District office, 715 Lincoln Ave, Woodland, CA  95695, as we will be collecting funds for them. You can also give online through Push Pay for NC Chico Or Push Pay for PAC


In his love and service,
