Thank You, Calimesa Youth
This Sabbath marks my final weekend as youth pastor at Calimesa, and I want to say thank you. You have all welcomed, loved, and supported me during my entire time here, and I couldn't be more grateful! We will look back on some of our memories from these past three-plus years during Sabbath School this weekend, and I would love to see any of you there. There will also be a farewell gathering in the evening. Let's celebrate our time together!

Pastor Aren
"Now may the Lord of peace himself give you his peace at all times and in every situation. The Lord be with you all."
2 Thessalonians 3:16 NIV
Youth Enjoy First Friendsgiving
Last Friday night was a special evening for our group, as we hosted our first ever Friendsgiving. To our surprise, close to 60 youth came to sit down at the table and share a meal together! We also had a wall of thanks, a photo booth, and the debut of our Calimesa Youth Family Photo Wall--which we hope will continue to grow. Pastor Mark led in a fun game called "The Golden Egg," and Pastor Aren finished the night with a meditation on being in Heaven together. A BIG thank you to the youth leaders and the parents who did so much for us!
Meet Pastor Mark Ricalde
We are excited to have Pastor Mark Ricalde as our new interim youth pastor! Pastor Mark is from Alberta, Canada, where he's served as a youth pastor and camp director. He married his wife, Alina, this summer, when he also moved to Southern California to study for his masters at La Sierra University. Pastor Mark loves music, basketball, and ministry. He is already fitting in well at Calimesa. Welcome to our church and youth group family, Pastor Mark and Alina!
