Pathfinder Fair convenes » On a beautiful, brisk day, the Pathfinders from throughout the Conference came together for the annual Pathfinder Fair. This year the event was held in Estes Park, Colo.

On the road » This past weekend, we finished our final Town Hall meeting for 2013, concluding our annual conference-wide regional gatherings at the Campion Church, in Loveland, Colo. It is bittersweet to conclude these gatherings because while we are glad not to be on the road so much, we thoroughly enjoy our time with our Conference family.
This coming weekend, I have the privilege to worship with the Encarnacion-quezada's Church, which meets in the gymnasium of the Arvada Church. This is one of the fastest-growing churches in our Conference, so it will be a joy to be with that church family this Sabbath.
Also this weekend, many of our schools will hold graduation services. Congratulations to all our very deserving students!
Have a blessed Sabbath everyone, and please remember to keep the Oklahoma victims in your prayers.
Elder Gary Thurber
President of the Rocky Mountain Conference
