This Week at UCA – December 17-January 6, 2011
Dear UCA Family,
Just a few hours and Christmas break will be here! The music department is putting the final touches on their performances. Tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. in the UCA SDA Church you will be able to enjoy and appreciate the many hours of practice. Then Saturday night at 7:30 in downtown Spokane, the 4th Annual Christmas at the Fox will begin.
Just an FYI: We continue to have days when we cannot make outgoing calls although we have been able to receive calls. We are continuing to work with our phone company to correct the issues. Thank you for your understanding.
DID YOU KNOW the Student Week of Prayer (“SWOP”) speakers have been chosen by the student body. The speakers will leave on their retreat to begin preparing their talks on Thursday, January 6. Let’s begin praying for them now.
The Upper Columbia Conference is joining the world Seventh-day Adventist Church in a prayer initiative. Click on this link for details http://www.uccsda.org/stories/20101214. Please remember UCA when you pray.
