Many fun activities to nurture our friendships, spiritual walk and overall well-being as women!
Bienvenidos a la iglesia Adventista Del Séptimo en Grass Valley. Somos un grupo de personas hispanas que nos reunimos para alabar a Dios, conocer más de su palabra y orar los unos por los otros. Les extendemos a todos nuestra invitación pues nos complace mucho desarrollar una buena amistad con las personas en nuestra comunidad y ayudarnos mutuamente a crecer en el gozo y la paz de la salvación que se encuentra en Cristo Jesús.

Card & Caring Ministry
Mission: To express care and encouragement to our GV SDA church members and families during times of illness, loss or other issues by way of receiving a special card in the mail. This is an opportunity for the deaconesses to offer sincere words of encouragement and possibly a prayer to someone in real need but still giving people their private space and or needed time to cope. This card ministry can also provide a way to help celebrate the joys in someone’s life as well! Note: It is important that we respect people’s privacy where appropriate and will not share information that is given in conﬁdence.
We are asking YOU to help participate each month in this ministry by emailing or calling me or Dee Simmons anytime you know of a church member that would beneﬁt from being sent a personal card! Not everyone has a computer or smart phone.
Contacts: Dee Simons: email@example.com (530) 263-9250
Pine Tree Quilt Guild
We provide quilts to those in our congregation (or others we hear about) who are in need of comfort. Also provide quilts for new babies and children who are in the legal system in our communities through the Nevada County Child Advocacy organization. Provide assistance to the “We Care” Project which donates quilts to children who are victims of our California fire season.
