The great English Bible translator William Tyndale once wrote:
Where the Holy Spirit is, there it is always summer, for there are always good fruits, that is to say, good works.
What a pleasure it is to anticipate a summer filled with fresh California fruit, warm evenings, and opportunities for rest and travel! I hope we can also anticipate a summer of growing in our love for the Lord Jesus, our knowledge of Scripture, and our work in his kingdom.

This note is from Scott Porter:
Thanks to everyone who volunteered at the CityTeam event last Saturday. The First OPC group of eight matched and attached pairs of donated shoes to prepare them for distribution. It was a blessing to work together and to serve others. As the Lord allows, we hope to have more opportunities in the future with CityTeam.
On Sunday, June 13 at 9:45am we will resume Sunday school for adults and kids. The kids will meet outside under the tent in a combined class. The adults will meet in the fellowship hall.
