Parish News and Events
WELCOME Tasha Loudon
Tasha has been attending the 10:30 service and recently began working in the Nursery. She writes: I have my bachelors degree from Cal arts in Southern California and have taught art for many years. I recently worked at a preschool in San Francisco and then ran an afterschool art program for K-5 children . I also have my Masters degree in psychology, and I am a licensed marriage family therapist . I work at children's behavioral health for the county and have experience in residential programs for kids. I am a lifeguard and I run a mountain biking program for at risk youth . In my spare time I like doing yardwork and spending time with my two sons who are 24 and 26. I have been a Christian most of my life born and raised presbyterian but that doesn't mean things have been easy. It's been a difficult journey. When I was a kid I would evaluate going into the big service with my dad by volunteering in the nursery. I think that's where I got my love for children. I hope to be some assistance to the church and learn under Paula's Incredible guidance. 
WELCOME Jim and Erika Haynes (9:15 service)

Jim and Erika moved to Grass Valley in 2017, but both had been exploring the area for many years while living in the Bay Area. Born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, Jim moved to California in 1994 after graduating from Oberlin College. He is a practicing artist, working in sound, video and film with exhibitions, screenings, and publications around the globe. He has also worked in the music industry in pretty much every capacity imaginable. Currently, he happily toils as a baker at the Flour Garden in Grass Valley. 

Erika’s roots trace to Covelo in Mendocino County. Upon her matriculation from Humboldt State University, she began a lengthy career in early childhood development, first as a pre-school teacher and more recently as a speech and language pathologist, working in the Eureka Union School District. Erika enjoys “wildcrafting” from the bounty of Nevada County to make potpourri, teas, cordials, tinctures, candles, soap, etc. 

Jim and Erika were married in 2016. They can often be found wandering the canal trails and shorelines of the Yuba with their dog Mikka. 
Every second Sunday, along with our traditional coffee, we will be serving baked goods in front of the church (or elsewhere if it rains). Look for homemade pies and coffee cakes, and cookies, and maybe a doughnut or two. Donations graciously accepted, especially If you take home a whole pie. If you’d like to contribute baked goods or to help oversee the table, please contact Sarah (913 9770)
Each Sunday, members of the Altar Guild carry out the meaningful ministry of preparing our place of worship, in particular the celebration of the Holy Eucharist. We  need new members to serve no more than once a month at either service. Training will be provided. If interested please contact the office or an Altar Guild Member.
Fr Brad and Fr Seth of Emmanuel Church are planning to lead a trip to the Holy Land in 2020 and all parishioners and their families and friends are encouraged to join them! Contact the office if interested. More information to follow.
