CARES Act Details:

    • Sends direct checks to individual Americans up to $1,200
    • Provides grants and loans to churches to meet payroll and pay rent
    • Provides liability protection for providers who volunteer (Good Samaritans)
    • Allows HSA to be used to purchase over-the-counter medications
    • Extends expiring health extenders to November

A Prayer for our time together at Encounter 2019

 "Hope is Rising"

As Encounter 2019 approaches, we are praying this prayer for our time together- Join us!
Join us in praying and join us in person on February 25-27 in Chico for our Central Pacific District Conference. 

Father, there is no one like you. And we ask that as we gather together for Encounter 2019, we would dream the dreams that are on your heart. That as a family, we would ask what would it look like to represent our Father to a world in the midst of tragedy. That we would see that we are not alone but that there are brothers and sisters around us who also long to see you known in this world. And that we would be able to declare together that hope is rising.
