 Church Business Meeting
We had a great turn out for the Church Business Meeting via Zoom on Feb 13th. The agenda item was: deciding on a church name.  Pastor David presented a Powerpoint on the reasoning behind the name change request. After discussion and some clarifying motions on what the church wanted and was comfortable with, the members voted to form a small committee to delve deeper into finding a name that would work best for our church and its needs. This committee is made up of church members who were at the business meeting and familiar with the discussion that was held.  They will present their name recommendations at a Business Meeting.

Note :  We will also still have a Business Meeting to approve the Church Budget at a soon to be decided date.  


Tuition Assistance/Worthy Student Applications 2021-2022 School Year


Financial Aid for Christian K-12 education is available via several means including the Roseville Church Worthy Student program and scholarships via the Northern California Conference and Pacific Union. The Roseville Worthy Student policy/application is available from the Church office; to view and apply for NCC/PUC scholarships, visit  The deadline for receiving both scholarship and Worthy Student applications is March 1. Unlike prior years, all recommendations, verifications, etc. are completed online so please allow additional time for the process. Priority for the coming school year will be given to Roseville Worthy Student applicants who also apply for appropriate NCC/PUC scholarships. There is no reason to wait until March 1, so please feel free to submit your application as soon as it is completed. If you have any questions, contact Pastor David or Ryan Rasmusson, Chair, Worthy Student Committee at or 916.813.3872.

Again, keep in mind that since the application process, other than the Roseville Church application, is completed and submitted completely online, and may involve information from other people, it may take additional time.  Please do not wait until the last minute to start the process.
