Pastor Steve Wilson has an amazing God-story -- ask him about it to find out more! But here is the abbreviated version --
Pastor Steve was helping his daughter buy a car in nearby Ontario, where he connected with a tough-looking salesman. As they talked, Pastor Steve discovered that the man was a gang-member-turned-Jesus-freak and had a rock band -- the "Misfit Army Ministry Team, based out of Nampa/Boise -- that shares their testimonies and the good news of Jesus along with their music. One thing led to another and Pastor Steve invited the band to Nyssa for a free concert in the church parking lot, offering hot dogs, water, and food baskets from the Nyssa Food Pantry. Around 100 people attended the event, fifteen went forward for prayer, and six were baptized on the spot!

Genesis Camp once again created the perfect camp experience for our young campers! Campers in grades 1-3 spent three days and two nights at Trinity Pines experiencing a variety of activities including chapel, the rock wall, crafts and snacks at the Jubilation Station! This year's theme was The Cove, and campers (with their guardians) learned that God supplies all of our needs through Jesus -- even when stranded in The Cove!
This incredible camp was made possible by directors Sara Ross and Scott & Kym Slater, in addition to all the adults who participated with the kiddos.

God spoke to Moses from within a burning bush in the desert, calling him to lead the Israelites out of slavery. It was overwhelming call.
Moses answered, "What if they do not believe me or listen to me and say, 'The Lord did not appear to you'?"
Then the Lord said to him, "What is that in your hand?"
"A staff," he replied.
"The Lord said, "Throw it on the ground." (Exodus 4:1-3a)
During the opening service of the 2021 Intermountain District Assembly, Pastor Scott preached from this passage as he spoke about our posture and attitude in the face of difficult circumstances. What do we have in our hands, and what might God call us to do with those things? Click here to listen:
