On May 12 ,2018 from 11:00am – 1:00pm URF will be going to the Children’s Hunger Fund Warehouse to pack mobile food packs for disenfranchised people all around the world. The event is similar to our Feed My Starving Children event last year. There will be no regular service at the church that Sabbath. Instead, we will do our Outreach first then have worship & lunch afterwards at the O’Melveny Park in Sylmar. Please make plans to be there a little early so that we can start our outreach right at 11:00am. Please sign up with Ben or Karen as soon as possible.
Welcome to the new name of our small groups. The purpose of L.I.F.E. groups is to: Learn, Invite, Fellowship and Evangelize. These four aspects help our church grow together as one body and individuals in Christ.
Our Theme for this session is Power To Persevere. Over the next 6 weeks our four L.I.F.E. Groups will be meeting. If you are not part of a L.I.F.E. Group please contact Pastor Kevin at email@example.com and he’ll get you set up with one.
Upper Room Fellowship SDA Church is proud to sponsor our first blood drive with the American Red Cross on December 16, 2017.
An estimated 38 percent of Americans are eligible to give blood, but of those, less than 10 percent actually donate each year. If you are healthy and eligible, please come out to donate. Most donations take about an hour, so book your appointment, roll up your sleeve and become a part of the lifesaving mission of the Red Cross and the Seventh-day Adventist Church. If you don’t know if you’re eligible, show up to find out. And if you can’t donate blood, we would love to have you as a volunteer at our drive.
Drive Date: December 16, 2017
Drive Times: 10:00am – 4:00pm

There are many ways you can help, but most importantly we hope you come out to donate. Pastor Kevin Camato, Pastor Ben Guero, Pastor Chris Farmisaran and Pastor Jeffery Chan have all signed up, and we’re looking forward to seeing many more of you.
Thank you for making the Seventh-day Adventist Church such a success. Let’s make an impact on December 16, 2017.

Each day, 22,000 people die from cancer worldwide (WHO). There’s a good chance that someone you know and love will be affected by this disease. Nearly half of cancer diagnoses and deaths are preventable. No-Shave November’s mission is to not only raise funds for cancer research and treatment but to educate the population about preventative measures. For over six years, participants around the globe have put down their razors and foregone their hair appointments to join the fight against cancer. The No-Shave November campaign has successfully raised over $3.5 million dollars to combat this disease. Every dollar raised brings us one step closer in our efforts to fund cancer research and education, help prevent the disease, and aid those fighting the battle. Each whisker grown allows us to embrace our hair, which many cancer patients lose during treatment. Will you join me? Start by using the links below.

Update – August 30
Adventist Community Services (ACS) has been asked by a number of emergency managers to deliver some of the products we have been preparing and stocking in semi-trailers from the ACS Depot in Keene, Texas. On the morning of August 28, a truck left for San Antonio to deliver clothes, hygiene kits and other needed items. Many of the residents housed in the San Antonio shelter were evacuated from Houston, where dirty flood waters forced them out of their homes. Shelter management requires those residing there to shower and have a clean change of clothing before they can enter the shelter. The ACS trailer arrived later in the afternoon to begin distribution of clothes in all sizes for the thousands that had need.
The work also continues in the city of Houston. ACS has been asked to manage a warehouse for the city.
Emotional and spiritual care providers will be ready in the next couple days to deploy to the flood-ravaged area for two weeks. These individuals will be assigned to work out of shelters that have been set up around the state.
ACS is forming a resource and needs listing that will be used over the next few days to determine how to support the local efforts. ACS recognizes that the efforts to support individuals, families and children will be long term, and we’re preparing for the long run.
