Thanks so much to so many of you for your generous support of The Place and our community. Jesus is the center of our worship...and our giving! You may give with no fees (as usual) on our church website -  And if you are missing out on our worship service...don't forget you can LIVESTREAM it each week on our Facebook page.

Mission Trip to Cancun this Summer

There will be a mission trip to Cancun this summer July 16-25.  The cost is approximately $600-750 depending on the cost of the flight. Please mark your calendars if you are interested and stay tuned for more details.



Park, picnic, and volleyball fun on Sabbath April 21st

Plan on spending an afternoon enjoying the fellowship, food, and volleyball.  We will meet at the Conejo Creek Park (the Thousand Oaks Library) at 2 p.m. We have reserved one of the covered picnic grounds to make dining al fresco more enjoyable.



Your help is needed for Sabbath School classes-PLEASE consider being a VOLUNTEER

Many of you have been blessed at one point or another by the Sabbath school classes offered to children at The Place.  Equipping our children to love and serve the Lord is perhaps  the most important ministry in the church.  We are in need of volunteer Sabbath School teachers.  Will you prayerfully consider serving on a regular basis in either cradle roll, kindergarten, 1st & 2nd grade, 3-5th, and/or Jr. High.  We are so grateful to all of the individuals who have already stepped up...we couldn't offer this ministry without you!  

If you are interested, please contact Cecilia at

All are invited to attend our first beach vespers on Friday night, April 27th beginning at 6 p.m.  We will meet at our usual spot at Sycamore Cove.  Hot dogs will be provided.  Please bring a salad, side, or dessert to share.  


Summer of Service

We invite you to SERVE! It is an amazing gift to serve others. This summer we are looking for 10 people (young or old) who would like to lead out in service. Here are some service opportunities this summer:

Homeless feeding – 4th Friday each month

Literacy tutoring – every week!
