Loss of Beloved Member

Hedy Wharton, longtime Roseville church member, passed away Jan.19 from COVID. She had just turned 98. Her extended family had celebrated her Jan. 2 birthday with her on a Zoom call when she told stories from her childhood and wished everyone God’s presence and peace. Her battle with COVID was brief.
Hedy and Don Wharton joined Roseville in 1993. Although they moved to Loma Linda in 2010, they retained their membership here, because Roseville always “felt like home.” Don passed away in 2015.
Teaching children to read was the joy of Hedy’s life and 40+ year career as a teacher in Adventist schools in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland, California, and Colorado. After her retirement, Hedy and Don also served two years as volunteer missionaries in Okinawa and Taiwan.  She is survived by her three daughters: Bonnie Dwyer, Lucy Gardner, and Donna Cline; three grandchildren: Mark Dwyer, Jessica Gardner and Jennifer Kvernmo; and two great-grandchildren: Isabel and John Kvernmo.
A Zoom Memorial Service will be held on Sunday, Feb. 14, at 11 am. If you would like to attend, please email Bonnie Dwyer at, and she will send you the link for the call.
Thank You

Joan Henderson would like to thank everyone for the many cards, prayers, phone calls, thoughts and best wishes that she has received since her recent fall and surgery for her broken hip.  She is home recovering with the help of her daughter who is staying with her for awhile. 
Prayer Request Corner

- ELDER TRAINING ON NCC YOUTUBE PAGE - Friday evening, Feb 26, PhD candidate, Greg Howell will give a presentation on Church history--something that all pastors and Adventist teachers have studied, but few elders have. We hope to give our elders something a little different and to add a little more depth to their ministry. Also, Sabbath afternoon, Feb 27, Dan Sterns (evangelism director for the Texas Conference) will speak about "The Elder's Most Important Job: Key Insights on Leadership and Resources for Small Group Ministry During a Pandemic."  9YDNk7un6Uh2PbfxRvQ.

- "LESS STRESS, MORE WORSHIP" - doing church online: Watch this valuable resource! It's one of the best, most user-friendly presentations. There are numerous practical takeaways on equipment, Zoom, options for the worship service, and more. You can find this excellent presentation on the NCC YouTube channel:

- BIBLE STUDY: Tuesday evenings at 7:00pm.  We are studying the book of Judges and the "roller coaster ride" of God's people, including the reasons why they separated themselves from Him from time to time.  But when they cried out, God always sent a deliverer to His people.  What does that mean for us today? Contact the McSherry's for information on how to join the Zoom Bible Study.

- VESPERS SQUAD - We are a community of young adults from all over the Greater Sacramento area that grow closer to God through achieving #squadgoals. Join our group chat so that you can be in the loop of weekly vespers, hikes, camping trips, and outreach. Download the app GroupMe and click this link to join:
