18th Alaska Constituency Session
The Alaska Conference's 18th Regular Constituency session is this Sunday, September 20, 2020 at the Palmer Seventh-day Adventist Church at 2238 S Inner Springer Loop in Palmer Alaska.  Registration opens at 7:45 a.m.; the session opens at 9 a.m.  For health reasons, attendance is limited to elected delegates and delegates-at-large only. Delegate packets have been mailed and should be in homes in just a few days; remember to bring your delegate packet with you to the session! Please note the conference office is closed Monday, September 21; normal operating hours resume September 22.

The session will be live-streamed to the conference Facebook page and website.  It will also be posted to the conference YouTube channel to view at your convenience. Please note, due to the session being relocated to Palmer, the Blood Bank of Alaska will NOT be on-site at either the Palmer Church or the Conference Office for our annual drive.

Health Evangelism Training
LIGHT Ministries, in participation with Wildwood Lifestyle Center, is offering a substantial group discount on its 450-hour Advanced Health Evangelism online course for $600 instead of the full price of $1,499!  If taken on-campus this course would take six months.  Minimum number of students for this price is ten, but this course is also being advertised in the UK, so we should easily be able to meet that number.  This is a fantastic deal and a great opportunity to learn skills to help you serve your family, your church, and your community.  Upon graduation, you could participate in a mission opportunity with LIGHT Ministries overseas or in the US.  The program is self-paced to suit your schedule and should be completed in one year.  For more details on the course and to see course descriptions, click hereFor information, contact Karen Gordon at 907-978-9053.

Pioneer Peak Auditorium Update
As of September 15, donations for the Pioneer Peak auditorium upgrades total $36,645.42!  Thank you for financial support for the repairs of our camp meeting facility. Please keep this need in mind over the next few months as you make your tithe and offerings plan.  If 1,000 families pledged $25 to this project before year's end, our goal will be reached and construction plans finalized.
