Use of Southern California Blending Center at Oak Glen
During the pandemic the brothers have been working to improve the accommodation buildings at Oak Glen. Until it returns to normal use, Oak Glen has been opened for use by families for family retreats and by serving saints, full-time teams, retired saints, or families who homeschool their children. For a limited time Oak Glen is open for use also as a wedding venue. Please see the Church News for further information.

2021 International Thanksgiving Conference
The 2021 International Thanksgiving Conference will be held on November 25-28. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, LSM will again host this conference completely online. The messages will be streamed in the same way as with previous online conferences. Further details will be provided in the coming weeks.

A link to watch the Wednesday night ministry meeting live via webcast is provided at lsm.org/live. The webcast will begin at 7:25 P.M. in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, and Korean. The outlines will be posted on the same site. Only FTTA trainees and staff are allowed to attend the live meetings in person.

Serving at the Bibles for America Distribution Center
The BfA Distribution Center (DC) has moved to the LSM campus. Those who are burdened and would like to be a candidate to serve as a volunteer at the DC can apply at bfa.org/dc-volunteer. A short video on the BfA operation at the DC is provided at youtube.com/watch?v=KPy1e-5ozWI. This is a wonderful opportunity to serve in spreading God’s interpreted Word to the hungry and seeking ones.

Three-Year Bible Reading Schedule
A weekly schedule is provided in the Church News for the saints to read through the text (without footnotes) of the entire Bible in three years. Each day’s readings will require 8 to 10 minutes. To keep track of their progress, the saints can download a schedule with check boxes from churchinanaheim.org/bible-reading.

Statement from the Elders Regarding COVID-19 Protective Restrictions
During the next few weeks we hope to advance toward hybrid virtual/in-person meetings according to district by utilizing arrangements in the meeting halls for participation in the upcoming junior high, high school, and working saints’ conferences. We will ask in-person participants to observe recommended COVID-19 safety precautions. As we proceed, we will carefully observe our community profile of new COVID-19 cases.

Offerings for LSM
Living Steam Ministry now has a website through which it can receive online donations from the saints: lsm.org/donations. This website may be used to make one-time donations, designated offerings, and fixed recurring donations. (It may not be used to make payments for goods or services.)

English-speaking sisters’ Prayer Times
Each week sisters’ prayer times are held on Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. and on Saturday at 8:30 a.m. Please see the small group announcements for the Zoom ID.

A New Way to Give Online to the Church in Anaheim
A new way of giving online to the church through the PayPal Giving Fund (PPGF) is now available. Donations given through the PPGF will be charged no fee; 100% of the donated amount will go to the church. Please visit churchinanaheim.org/donations for information.

NOTE: unless you desire to remain anonymous, please check the box next to “Share my name and email with this charity” on the PPGF donation page. If the box is unchecked, the church will not know the donor’s identity. This is especially important if you are using the PPGF to pay a conference or training donation.

A Timely Speaking of Supply from Brother Lee to Meet the Present Need
Each week Living Stream Ministry will post a video from messages given by Brother Lee. See lsm.org/timely-speaking.html to stream the weekly video.
