Mt. Zion Church - Fri June 28

Bob Kilpatrick will be speaking and singing this Sunday! 
Most people know Bob Kilpatrick for the songs he has written (In My Life Lord Be Glorified, Here Am I, Send Me to the Nations) and the albums he has produced for musicians like Phil Keaggy and Randy Stonehill. Many others know his radio devotional Time Out with Bob Kilpatrick which enjoyed 2 million daily listeners for 20 years.

Now his new book, The Art of Being You, has been published by Zondervan Books (Harper Collins).

“Every week in churches across America people tell me that this simple but life-changing message - God is an Artist, not a Mathematician, and you are his masterpiece, not his frustrating equation - frees them in a way nothing else has. Many have told me what one woman said: “’I have hobbled along for years wanting God to fix me when He was really wanting to form me.’” – Bob Kilpatrick

Raft trips on the Mokelumne River to benefit river conservation - July 14 & July 28

There’s nothing more fun than a splashy raft trip on a hot summer day! Don’t miss your chance to raft the Mokelumne River near Jackson, with professional guides this July. The Mokelumne is California’s newest state-designated Wild and Scenic River.

On Sunday, July 14, and Sunday, July 28, you’ll have the rare opportunity to raft the Mokelumne River with O.A.R.S. of Angels Camp. O.A.R.S. will run guided trips at 11:00 am and 3:00 pm on the Mokelumne’s 5.5-mile Electra-Middle Bar Run south of Jackson. The trips will benefit the Foothill Conservancy and support its efforts to protect and restore the Mokelumne River.
“This is a rare opportunity to float the Mokelumne and experience its beauty from river level with skilled guides and professional equipment,” said Conservancy President Katherine Evatt. “Regular commercial rafting is not yet allowed on the Mokelumne. Only a few trips each year are allowed by special permit.”

The trip is a fun introduction to whitewater rafting, suitable for families and healthy seniors. No prior rafting experience is required. You’ll have plenty of time to relax and enjoy the scenery as well as fun, bouncy Class II-III rapids: the Chute, S-Turn, and Devil's Toilet Bowl. Below the Highway 49 Bridge, rafters may see ducks, geese, and other wildlife along the river. The entire trip, including transportation to and from the site, should take less than three hours.

Cost is $75 per person and space is limited. This year, we’re offering a special for those wanting to become new members of Foothill Conservancy. For $100 you can get the raft trip for just $60 and a new individual membership for $40. Advance reservations are required. Participants must be at least age 8 and adults should be in good health.  Youth under 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

The trips will be guided and equipped by O.A.R.S. of Angels Camp, one of the world’s finest whitewater rafting companies, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary. They have skilled, knowledgeable professional guides and well-equipped and maintained rafts.

To reserve your spot, see the Events section of the Foothill Conservancy website,, or go directly to

For more information about the raft trips, contact Carolyn at 209-223-3508 or e-mail her at For more about O.A.R.S., see

PG&E Hosting Informational Webinar for Community Wildfire Safety Program - Wed June 26

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) will be hosting its first in a series of informational webinars to share information about its Community Wildfire Safety Program. These webinars will provide an opportunity for anyone who is interested in PG&E’s wildfire safety efforts to receive a presentation from PG&E leadership, ask questions and provide feedback.

Topics will include the Public Safety Power Shutoff program, accelerated safety inspections of electric infrastructure, enhanced vegetation management around power lines, and hardening the electric system for the future.

The presentation will be streamed and participants can join online or listen in via a toll-free number.

Wednesday, June 26
1 to 3 p.m.

Dial in: 855-247-4312 | Code: 5181849

Given the continued and growing threat of extreme weather and wildfires, and as an additional precautionary measure following the 2017 and 2018 wildfires, PG&E is enhancing and expanding its Community Wildfire Safety Program to further reduce wildfire risks and help keep customers and communities safe.

PG&E is also expanding its Public Safety Power Shutoff program to include all electric lines – both distribution and transmission – that pass through high fire-threat areas. Because the energy system relies on power lines working together to provide electricity across cities, counties and regions, power may be shut off even for those who do not live or work in a high fire-threat area. PG&E will only proactively turn off lines in the interest of safety to help reduce the likelihood of an ignition when extreme weather and fire danger conditions are forecasted.

More information about the Community Wildfire Safety Program, including a schedule of upcoming open houses and informational webinars, can be found at:

PG&E Encourages Customers to Update Their Contact Information, In Preparation for Public Safety Power Shutoffs

As Wildfire Season Progresses, Updates Needed from More Than 240,000 Customers
More than 390,000 Customers Have Updated Information Since June 2018

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is sending postcards to more than 240,000 customers encouraging them to update their mobile number, email and other key information so the company can contact them in advance should it become necessary to temporarily turn off power for safety this fire season.

These customers, who live throughout PG&E’s service area, have incomplete or no contact information on file.

It is important that all customer information is up to date so PG&E can share important wildfire safety alerts. In addition to notifying customers directly, PG&E also will provide outage updates and information through channels such as social media, local news, radio and the website.

“With the 2019 wildfire season now upon us, we all need to be better prepared to stay emergency-ready and to keep our families and friends safe,” said Laurie Giammona, PG&E’s senior vice president and chief customer officer. “We are asking our customers to be sure we have their latest contact information so we can do our best to reach them in advance of a potential Public Safety Power Shutoff event.”

The Public Safety Power Shutoff program is one of many additional precautionary safety measures in response to the 2017 and 2018 wildfires that the company is putting in place as part of its Community Wildfire Safety Program intended to reduce wildfire threats and strengthen communities for the future.

Extreme weather threats can change quickly. PG&E’s goal, dependent on weather and other factors, is to send customer alerts through automated calls, texts and emails at 48 hours, again at 24 hours, and again just prior to shutting off power.

Besides updating their contact information to prepare for Public Safety Power Shutoffs, PG&E encourages customers to do the following:

       Have an emergency plan for wildfires and discuss it with your friends, family and neighbors;
       Update or create a go bag or 72-hour kit that can be used if you need to evacuate; and
       Clear defensible space around your home or business.

PG&E thanks the over 390,000 customers who have taken action to ensure they will receive its wildfire safety alerts since June 1, 2018. For customers who have not yet confirmed or updated their contact information, PG&E strongly encourages everyone to do so by visiting or by calling the PG&E contact center at 1-866-743-6589.
