2007 Annual Report of Quartz Hill Presbyterian Church

BUILDING CHRIST-CENTERED RELATIONSHIPS
It is hard to believe that it is time for my fifth annual report. What an amazing year! The goodness of God and the faithfulness of God’s people have been abundantly apparent. In 2007 we the congregation focused its energies in deepening our commitment to local outreach, evangelism and growth in membership. Along with others, I joined in distributing invitational flyers to people in events such as the Almond Blossom Festival and Quartz Hill Chamber of Commerce meetings, door by door in our neighborhood and at public places such as the shopping center on Avenue L and 40th Street West as well as the new shopping center at N and 50th Street West. In addition, I dedicated the bulk of my time in support to programs that included a significant interaction with un-churched people in our community such as the Desperados softball team, the Alpha Course and our Youth Gatherings. It was a pleasure to see how other events such as the Men’s Breakfast (under the leadership of Jay Zeigler) and the Christmas play (under the leadership of Gillian Ray) have drawn people that are not currently part of our church. I met with prospective church memTABLE OF CONTENTS bers and worked in the development of a new membership/stewardship packet with the intention 1 FROM OUR PASTOR of enhancing our current method of providing orientation to candidates for membership.

As ways of strengthening our congregation’s ties with the Antelope Valley community, I attended three gatherings of the local Kiwani Club and worked with World Impact in the execution of a cross-denominational strategy of leadership development and congregational multiplication that aims at ministering to the increasing racial-ethnic diversity in the Los Angeles County. I also served as one of the Spiritual Directors at the fall Men’s Walk to Emmaus and preaching at two of their monthly gatherings. I participated in meetings of the Antelope Valley Ministerial Association, met for breakfast with pastors of six other protestant congregations in the west Antelope Valley, preached at Mayflower Garden’s United Congregational Church and, along with Fr. Ernest Candelaria, coordinated

our yearly Thanksgiving Service with Blessed Junipero Serra Roman Catholic Parish. Our congregation also hosted the 12 -week Family to Family Education program sponsored by the local chapter of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) In service to the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) I completed my term as co-chair of the Committee on Representation of the Synod of Southern California and Hawaii and continued as a member of the ReForming Ministry Initiative of the Office of Theology and Worship of the General Assembly. At the Presbytery level my commitment remained with the Evangelism and Church Growth Committee. In addition, I attended the dedication service for the new sanctuary of “Iglesia Presbiteriana Hispana del Valle del Antilope” (Antelope Valley Hispanic Presbyterian Church) and taught a class for them on the subject “Evangelization and the Mission of the Church”. I also served as Instructor of “Personal Evangelism” for the Lay Leadership Training Program sponsored by San Francisco Theological Seminary. The meetings with pastors of the other Presbyterian Churches in the Antelope Valley area (Lancaster, Palmdale, Lake Hughes, Littlerock, Acton and Newhall) have continued to be occasions for interchanging ideas and “best practices” among ourselves. With great joy we witnessed how the Presbytery enthusiastically welcomed the Reverend Steve Parkins back into its membership as requested by our session’s request that he become, once again, a member of the Presbytery. In the same spirit, our congregation continues to support Jorge Quintanilla’s process for ordination as a Minister of the Word and Sacraments.

Last but not least, 2007 was a year of increased needs for pastoral care. Not only did we grieve over the departure of our dear Franklin Miller but many of our members faced serious health and family difficulties. In response to that, the Board of Deacons has strengthened its commitment to visitation. After Audrey Miller’s initiative, Glenda Maher, Ginny Walker and Deacon Alice Macy have systematically visited homebound parishioners. Their work has assisted me greatly in identifying needs within our constituency as well as becoming more effective serving communion at homes. None of the above described activities would be possible without the hard work of spiritually maturing and dedicated leaders. Our elders and deacons have demonstrated a genuine love for God and for each other. We begin the twentieth year of Christ’s ministry through Quartz Hill Presbyterian Church with serious financial challenges. It is my hope and prayer that, together, we may see our current situation as an opportunity to grow forward into the people that God wills us to become. My deep thanks to our support staff, to my wife Maricela and to the members of this church for your ongoing support, care and Christian love. In God’s grip, The Reverend Juan J. Sarmiento Pastor.

Christian Education
Christian Education meetings have been held as needed, usually after the second service. All teachers of Sunday School and Junior Church, as well as members of the congregation are invited to attend the meetings. Group Faithweaver Sunday School curriculum was used again this year. Areli McPherson and Maricela Samiento taught the younger children through 4th grade. Barbara LaFollette taught the older youth through Junior High in the spring sessions and Kathy Gaskins has taken over the class in the fall session. Caroline Scratch continued to teach the Adult class. This fall Nancy Walker and Caroline Scratch led an high school through adult class on the Creeds. There was no regular high school class this year. Junior Church continued to be held during the sermon portion of our church service. It is led by a rotating group of adults consisting of Kathy Gaskins, Lori Abbot, Ginny Walker, Roberta Lotter, Jenny Praizner Jay and Linda Zeigler. The Bible Buddy program continued and a luncheon was held in November to end this session of Bible Buddies. Everyone was invited to support the Angel Tree program this year instead of buying gifts for the Bible Buddies. We thank Jay and Lynda Ziegler who organized and ran this program as they have for many years. Again a very successful Youth Night was continued from the fall into the spring. It was led by Bobbie and Jorge Quintanilla. Along with the fun of games and great dinners the youth participated in the 2006 Super Bowl of Caring on February 4, 2007 and raised $208.20. The youth donated the money raised to AV Domestic Violence Council, the AV Dog and Cat rescue and Grace Resource Center.

The Youth assembled two storage boxes full of Easter eggs for the Zeigler’s Annual Easter Egg Hunt held Saturday April 7, 2007 and then they held a BB fund-raiser at the Church’s Annual Rummage Sale raising approximately $250.00. The Youth Group went on a hiatus for the summer due to vacations and family events and then reconvened with an end of the summer BBQ hosted by Ginny Walker. September saw the start of the ALPHA for youth which was held each Saturday evening through the middle of December. Walker. Our Annual Easter Egg Hunt was hosted by Jay and Lynda Zeigler on Saturday April 7, 2008. It was well attended by the families and friends of the church. Also on Easter morning small color books about Easter with crayons were handed to all children who attended any of our three services. Pancake breakfasts were held in June and August to end and then begin the Sunday School sessions. The entire congregation was invited to attend and we had a big crowd for each of the breakfasts. We had a very successful Vacation Bible School. This year we were fortunate to have received support for our VBS from the Palmdale Methodist Church from whom we purchased our backdrop and then they donated all their leftover materials. Also the Father Serra Catholic church loaned and/or gave us many of their leftover materials. We used the Group VBS curriculum called Avalanche Ranch...where God is Awesome!

This year we held the Alpha Course every Saturday night from September until the beginning of December. We registered 44 people: 19 English speaking adults, 7 children, 4 youth, 14 Spanish speaking adults. Weekly attendance was 23 people with 9 people attending that were previously unrelated to QHPC. We had 19 people attend the retreat with 7 of those previously unrelated to QHPC. Church members and Alpha attendees worked together to provide some excellent dinners each night and much of the food. The advertisement banner that was displayed in front of our facilities was made by a member of the Desperados team and generously donated by the McPhersons. The advertisement materials, study materials, and retreat costs were paid from the Multicultural Ministry Grant from the Outreach Committee of La Canada Presbyterian Church which we greatly appreciated. This year we also had an excellent Christmas Program. Gillian Ray along with cast of adult and children put on a unique program that included acting, music and lots of fun! It was well attended and enjoyed by all. We really had a busy year and have appreciated all the volunteers who work in all the Christian Education programs. Thank-you one and all! Respectfully Submitted, Kathy Gaskins Christian Education Elder

Worship
The worship committee continued to use “LIFT UP GOD IN WORSHIP” as its focus during the year 2007. This is part of our Vision Statement of our church. The objectives used were: Using individual gifts to enhance worship, promoting worship attendance, encouraging family home worship, and lift up the importance of prayer. Enhancing Worship Several elders helped with the worship services. Banners representing different confessions were created by Carolyn Scratch and Nancy Walker. Each banner was thoughtfully and intricately designed. Both Nancy and Carolyn took time to explain the colors and lay out of the banners. A special banner was purchased to follow the Christmas Theme that Pastor Juan laid out: The Light of Christmas. Music plays a part in both the 8:30 service and 10:30 service. Cameron Maus is our pianist while Jay Zeigler directs the choir. Gillian Ray directed the children’s choir and Christmas Pageant in December for a standing room only performance on December 16. Five new acolytes were trained this year. We have 5 acolytes and these youth help with greeting and collecting the offering. Our adults who do the children’s message each service are Kathy Gaskins, Vicky Frey. Wonderful speakers shared the Word of God with us on several occasions. Jorge Quintanilla, Reverend Steve Parkins, Reverend Darrell Meyers, and Doris Torres assisted as well as members of the congregation. A bagpipe soloist played for the worship service on Reformation Sunday in October.

Encouraging Worship Attendance The sanctuary was maintained by several members of our congregation by seasonal decorations and thematic displays. The average attendance for 2007 was 27 for the 8:30 service and 62 for the 10:30 service. Elder Vicky Frey began a new system to have more of the congregation help with the greeting and ushering at services. She formed a bank of volunteers and assigned them one Sunday each month or every other month. Then she mails postcard reminders to them for the day they are assigned to help. This procedure has aided in the flow or worship and has allowed several worshippers the opportunity to help. Pastor Juan and Vicky Frey took time during worship service to review how communion is served during the service. They also had a group meeting with the communion servers to refine the way communion is served. Another special review meeting was with the Lay Leaders. Many good thoughts and corrections were shared during this meeting. The Worship Committee thanks all the lay leaders, musicians, acolytes, greeters and ushers in helping our church provide a place to focus on worshipping God.

provide another meaningful year of worship preparation. This committee is made up of Ginny Walker, Glenda Maher, Marie Spencer and Vicky Frey. Submitted by Vicky Frey Worship Elder

Outreach
Angel Tree – It Starts with a Gift Right now, an estimated 2.3 million children have a mom or dad in prison. The number is huge – but so is the opportunity. Angel Tree is a ministry that reaches out to the children of inmates and their families with the love of Christ. It seeks to transform the lives of these families and to reconcile them to their Heavenly Father and each other. This Christmas, Quartz Hill Presbyterian Church sponsored twenty children from the Angel Tree program and provided generously with time, gifts, clothes, and transportation of gifts to the children. There has been a very positive reaction from the families of inmates, including the conversion of some prisoners or family members, to Christianity. There are many touching stories, especially from those families whose only Christmas gifts were from our donations through this wonderful program. Angel Tree does not need to end with Christmas. We are currently looking into expanding this Outreach effort, to continuing this program
Page 6

Worship at Home Copies of These Days, devotional materials were available to the congregation as well as Advent calendars for the children. Lifting Up Prayer Sharing Prayers and Concerns is a fundamental part of each service. Each praise and concern is typed in the following Sunday bulletin so the congregation can continue to pray for those in need and rejoice in answered prayer. Prayer cards are continually provided in the sanctuary chair pockets so individuals who wish to communicate his or her prayer in private may do so. With an emotional year at an end, the worship committee feels strength in the Word of God to

throughout the year. We hope to maintain and build relationships with these families and help them to grow in their faith, and strengthen their relationships with the imprisoned parents. The Desperados Softball Team The Desperados continue to play softball and have made valuable relationships with existing teammates, substitute players, and opposing team players. Most of the Desperados do not have a home church, but some have visited our church and continue to show interest in developing a relationship with Christ. This program, through fellowship, also acts as an opportunity to bond with others and allow us to lead by example, and enrich each others lives as these bonds strengthen. Earlier this year, we had a Desperado vs QHPC picnic and softball game which was a huge success. Fun was had by all, and many different people showed up to eat or play, and fellowship. We plan to continue this function at least once a year. Players have generously contributed to our church financially, and through shirt and hat sales, have allowed us to get the church name out there, which has generated interest in our church. We plan to continue this program as long as we can get enough players to play softball. The opportunity to play in a secular league has been a rewarding experience for all of us involved (and it’s fun). During 2007 our website (quartzhillpc.org) received a daily average of 2 visitors and a total of 425 unique visits. 2008 proposed new challenges for our church, and Outreach will continue to spend energy on reaching out to our community to share the good news of Jesus Christ and be supportive of our local community wherever possible.

Building and Grounds
The light on the west side of the Sign in front of the church has been replaced. It was on all the time and was replaced with a light similar to the one on the east side of the sign which has a sensor built into the fixture so it turns on and off automatically. The outside door on the South side of the Sanctuary, and the outside door on the North side of the kitchen have been replaced. The sprinkler valves have been replaced and a bypass drain installed to facilitate further work on the sprinkler lines. The plans for the field area at the North side of the parking lot continue to be discussed. Respectfully submitted. Dennis M. LaFollette Elder for Buildings and Grounds

Personnel & Finance
Rev. Juan Sarmiento is assisted by Ms. Terri Downie who types up the bulletins each week. Production of the bulletins and our monthly newsletter is accomplished by volunteers. Although the addition of a parttime secretary to our staff did not materialize, our committee foresees that it will take place in the first quarter of 2008 Cameron Maus has continued to richly bless us each week as our pianist. We are very grateful for his ministry and service to our congregation. Stephanie Shuping continued to serve as Treasurer this year.

Five-Year Financial Information

Membership
Pastor Juan and Elder Betty Valenti met to review the Quartz Hill Presbyterian Church’s participation and various preparations for the Almond Fair Spring 2007. Betty Valenti began organizing the event which took place in March. Pastor Juan provided the payment of $ 175.00 for the booth. Betty placed a colorful sign up chart in the sanctuary for our parishioners. Several members signed up for the various jobs needed to ensure our membership drive success. Betty with exceptional help of our members organized the needed tent, tables, chairs, church balloons and our church banner donated by Linda Mara. Betty purchased special table cloths, baskets and treats. Elder Donnie Slocum let us borrow her special spinning wheel of fortune to be used by the children visiting our booth. Special flyers were printed with information on our church to be passed as part of our ongoing membership mission. Betty Valenti gathered information on the Palmdale Fall Festival as another means to encourage membership in our church. After consideration and review of the event our Session determined that participation during the four day event would not meet our needs. In October Betty Valenti also gathered information on the Palmdale Parks and Recreation Ice Skating event to be held in December 2007 as another possible membership drive. After careful review we realized that the event would no longer have individual booths for community use.

New Members in 2007 We received Rem and Iris Cuniberty, Elizabeth Hall and Enrique Ruiz. This brings our membership to 101 people by the end the 2007 calendar year. New Membership Information Booklet Pastor Juan and Betty Valenti are currently reviewing a special packet of information on our church and making adjustments to meet the needs of new candidates for membership.

Mission
Led by Elder Nancy Walker, our congregation supported the major offerings of the Presbyterian Church (USA). Our Peacemaking local offering has been set aside for the creation of a Peace Garden on our property. In 2007 we supported two local organization: • Grace Resources, which provides meals and other services for homeless people and others whose budgets don’t stretch far enough. We give both money and donated food items. • The Antelope Valley Dog and Cat Rescue, a no-kill organization in Pearblossom, which we have supported with warm blankets, litter and canned cat food. We continue to collect items to send to overseas soldiers and we have provided boxes of items to our local Blue Star Mothers to distribute. The committee has sent a contribution of $ 1,200.00 to Pineview Presbyterian Church Hattiesburg, MS as part of our partnership with this congregation that was severely affected by hurricane Katrina. We also hosted Mrs. Violet Abdelmasih from Shepherds' Field Olive Wood Handicrafts who to brought beautiful handicrafts for sale . Creation and sale of olive wood carvings is a major source of income in the Christian communities of the Holy Land. These crafts came from Beit Sahour which has the largest percentage of Christians in Palestine.

Board of Deacons
Year 2007 began with the Joint Deacons and Elders Planning Meeting at Pastor Sarmiento’s home on January 27, 2007. During the Deacons’ separate portion of the day, The Deacons set goals for the year, established a plan for events for the year, realigned flock assignments as required and agreed on officers and committee chair assignments for the upcoming year. The Deacons and their offices and or committee assignments are as follows: Dave Anderson Treasurer April Briscoe Hospitality Committee Co-Chair Roberta Lotter Parish Life Co-Chair Alice Macy Church Purchasing Agent & Roving Member Linda Mara Moderator and Secretary Areli McPherson Communion Committee Chair Audrey Miller Parish Life Committee Co-Chair Georgianna Scott Hospitality Committee Co-Chair

The Communion Committee prepared the elements for all communion services. Chairperson Areli McPherson with the assistance of Bob Vatcher and other Deacons as needed prepared the elements for 38 services which served 1442 communicants. This included the serving of 21 home communions. The Hospitality Committee co-chaired by April Briscoe and Georgianna Scott and assisted by Bob Vatcher, Mike Maher, Alice Macy, Audrey Miller and others, ensured that there was fresh coffee and punch, and snacks and goodies for the fellowship time after each service. Jim Rose faithfully brought several dozen donuts each Sunday Morning which were gratefully appreciated. Members of the congregation were encouraged to bring refreshments to celebrate special occasions (such as birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, etc.) or to donate cash contributions. During 2007 the Parish Life Committee Co-Chaired by Roberta Lotter and Audrey Miller and ably assisted by Roving member Alice Macy and others organized potlucks for the church. These were held to provide a time for socializing and fellowship. This year’s potlucks were as follows: Feb 10 - The “Around the World” themed potluck featuring food from many different countries and ethnicities. Our guest speaker was Dr. Elaine Vaden from the Presbyterian Frontier Fellowship. Mar 17 - “Think Green” St. Patrick’s Day Theme.

Jun 9 - “Beat the Heat” theme featured cold dishes with ice cream for dessert. Oct 14 – “Chili Cook-off and Pumpkin Carving Contests”. The Deacons also organized and coordinated the Church Rummage Sale which earned $1400 for the church’s building fund. Additionally, the Deacons assisted in the small group study, “40 Days of Purpose” and the “Alpha” study sessions. The Visiting Ministry was begun in June. Audrey Miller (Parish Life) and Glenda Maher visit monthly the house-bound and shut-ins of our church family. At present, they are visiting and ministering to eight members in their homes and one member at Mayflower Convalescent Hospital. Pastor Juan and Audrey also serve communion each month at home to those who request it. Financially in 2007, the Deacons received income for the Deacons General Fund from Recycling and the sale of coffee beans. Fund raising event were not required this year. The Deacons Agape Fund received contributions from the congregation several times during the year. These funds were used along with existing funds to assist several members of the extended church family. The Deacons Financial Report 2007 is submitted with this report. We gratefully thank outgoing Deacons April Briscoe and Linda Mara for their dedication and loyal service to the Board of Deacons. Respectfully submitted Dave Anderson, Deacon

Singles & Others
The Singles went to the traditional pajama party at the Argentine Bistro on New Year’s Day. It wasn’t quite the same as it was in previous years before the Bistro changed hands.

It has been a good yes for the Singles and Others. The food is usually good and the visiting during the meals is always interesting. They hope that others will join them. Submitted by Lu Cook

Presbyterian Women
In 2007 Presbyterian Women met each month from January to May. They took a vacation from June to August, met in September, skipped a meeting in October during the Alpha program, and resumed meeting each month in November and December. Usually they met on the 3rd Wednesday morning of the month at 9:30 or the 4th Monday evening of the month at 6:30, Officers were Lu Cook Moderator with Linda Mara as backup. Other officers were Audrey Miller, secretary and Suzanne Van Dyken, Trasurer. During the first half of the year, Alice Brown was Mission Chairman reporting on the Yearbook of prayer with maps showing where the people were that the prayers were for. She also handled the Campbell Soup Labels, used stamps and other Mission Projects. Blankets were donated to several organizations. Recently five crocheted blankets for children burn victims were donated to the Linus Project. Barbara Brown was very faithful to make phone calls reminding women of the meetings. Ginnie Walker was able to takeover some of the work involved with snapshots and other items for scrapbooks. She and Marie Spencer were also faithful in helping with the evening group so Lu Cook could present the lesson at each meeting. Using the National Horizon’s Bible Study titled PERSPECTIVE ON GENESIS, the Groups studied THE OUTSIDER- Hagar; SACRIFICE- Abraham; MATRIARCHS- Rebekah, Leah, and Rachel; RIGHTEOUSNESS – Tamar; and PROVIDENCE- Joseph. In June the morning Group went out to lunch at Famous Dave’s in the Mall. In September both Groups began the Bible Study put out by Horizon for 2007-2008. It’s about Jonah – a Reluctant Prophet and Ruth – a Faithful Foreigner! The first three chapters have been very interesting. The last six chapters will be studied in 2008. Hopefully more women will come out to participate in the discussions.
