Farewell for Pastor Samantha Peralta
Pastor Samantha Peralta is transitioning to a new role as Elementary Chaplain at Loma Linda Academy. Tomorrow is her last Sabbath as our Children and Family Pastor.
Pastor Sam has served Azure Hills for the past two and a half years with excellence and creativity. During these months of pandemic she continued to offer joy, hope, fun experiences, and most of all, pointed each of us to Jesus. She has loved our families well through her ministry with Adventurers, Sabbath School, Vacation Bible School and Basketball ministry.
During her time here, Pastor Sam has worked with our Children’s Ministries teams and volunteers to make significant, positive changes to what we offer for children and families. This includes writing and updating Sabbath School curriculum, nurturing volunteer support for teachers, and creating warm and friendly hallways and doors (make sure you see these this weekend!!), She also offered Bible studies and discipled our kids as she taught lessons, Sabbath School, and shared worship.
We invite you to come and hear her preach tomorrow at 9am or 11:30am. If you’ve tried to register and there are no seats available, come anyway! We have overflow set up in the Fellowship Hall and you will still be able to connect with fellow members and get to talk to Pastor Sam.
We will express our appreciation and blessings for Pastor Peralta and her family tomorrow at
5pm at a Farewell Program
in the Open Air Platform on our back lawn. We invite your prayers for Pastor Sam and her family as she transitions to her new role.
