What’s happening in religion
Everyone at St. Theresa Catholic Church feels for those who have lost their homes in the Angora fire. They are in the thoughts and prayers of everyone. Many locals are volunteering to provide anyone affected by the fire with the resources available to aid in recovery.
St. Theresa parish is offering the distribution of food pantry-type items donated on behalf of the victims by locals, neighboring communities and the Campbell’s Corp. The Angora fire relief food pantry is at St. Theresa Parish Hall (the gym) and hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 1:30 to 4 p.m. Sunday. The pantry will be open other days as volunteers are available, and you can check at the church for additional hours of operation. For an appointment call Vicki at (530) 544-0557. Drive around to the back of the hall to enter through the back door.
All those who have been displaced by the Angora fire are invited to come in and pick up some nonperishable pantry items once they are settled into new living quarters. Friends of those displaced are welcome to come in and gather items to deliver a care basket to loved ones.
Donations of nonperishable food items in small or moderate amounts are being accepted to add to these supplies. Small kitchen items such as utensils will also be accepted.

Continentals play free shows
The Continentals, America’s favorite musical group for more than 38 years, will present a free concert at First Baptist Church, 1053 Wildwood Ave. The group will perform during both the 9 and 11 a.m. services on July 22.
Advancing the Kingdom of Jesus Christ through the performing arts is the heart of every Continental concert.

All contain a powerful message and all are certain to make a powerful impact.
