ANNOUNCEMENTS
THANK YOU GA VOLUNTEERS  
The AVPC leadership wants to thank you for your prayers and volunteer work with General Assembly two weeks ago. The pastors and leaders were very encouraged and blessed to see (and hear about) many people from the AVPC family helping each day at General Assembly. Thank you for supporting your local and denominational church in this way. We greatly appreciate it!
MEN OF THE VALLEY
Over the next 5-6 weeks, we have a unique opportunity to serve our church body, as there is a gap between our former facilities manager, Jody Fredrickson, and the new facilities manager, David Mayhew.

The Facilities Team (Al Foster, Josh Putman, and Bill Sommer) calls for the aid of the men of our church to fill this gap.

Each Saturday morning over the next 5-6 weeks, we will have several small maintenance projects around the church. A Signup such as this will go out several days prior to enlist volunteers.

The projects are able to be completed between 7-10am in order to finish the work in a timely manner without taking the bulk of anyone's Saturday.

Click HERE to see the list of the projects for this Saturday and to sign up.

On behalf of the Facilities Team and church staff, Thank you!

LADIES BIBLE STUDIES
Ladies of Altadena come join your sisters this summer as we study the Word together. This summer we will have an 8 session study spanning June and July, with a week off for VBS. Our study, “Anxiety: Finding Comfort and Reassurance from God” addresses a real felt need for most of us these days! We will focus on scripture each week as we press in to God, seeking His answers to our need. Please join us. Each lesson stands alone, so we encourage you to come as your summer schedule allows. This is a great time to join if you haven’t been before, or rejoin if you’ve been away for a bit! You'll find women who will warmly welcome you, and will honestly share the struggles and joys of their walk with God. Childcare for all ages is provided at the Wednesday AM study. Study guides will be available for purchase in the Church Parlor in May.

Monday afternoons: 3-4:30 at the home of Wendy Allison (4612 S. Lakeridge Dr. 35244) and via ZOOM (contact Wendy to be added to zoom list). No babysitting provided. Beginning May 30-July 25th. There is, however, no meeting on on June 20, and 27 and on July 4.
