Here members of the Structures Committee (from left, Phil Helfer, Dan O’Deens, and Ron Smals) meet on the lawn of the Seal Beach church. Other committees (membership, finance, etc.) were meeting elsewhere in the facility of Grace Community Church, pastored by Don Shoemaker.
Yesterday Shoemaker invited all his church staff to have lunch with Fellowship Council members. Members of the council will be fanning out across southern California tomorrow to speak and bring greetings in a variety of Grace Brethren churches.
Next on the schedule for many is the Southwest Focus Retreat, to be held at Rancho Capistrano near San Juan Capistrano Monday through Wednesday of this coming week.
