“Gourmet Gifts”



In addition to a gorgeous spring day, the Harvest Room treated

us to a de-licious traditional Easter menu of glazed ham,

creamy scalloped potatoes, and savory vegetables.

During our program, we learned about The Crave, a new gift store

in Yuba City presented by Melinda Barlow. We greatly enjoyed the superb

musical talent of Stephanie Bollinger, followed by

Sherry Mehl, our speaker who reminded us of God's great love.


Yuba City local Melinda Barlow, shared how she and her husband

were inspired to start a store that featured things that they

"craved" in our area.  The Crave offers a wide variety of consumable

gourmet and local products such as olive oil, mustard, BBQ sauce,

teas, and delicious chocolates.  They also offer a variety of great specialty

items such as soaps, lotions, and candles, and gift baskets for the hard

to buy for person.  The Crave is a wonderful addition to our community.


 We were blessed by the extremely gifted music of Stephanie Bollinger,

who entertained us with the nostalgic song entitled "PS I Love You."

Later in the program, Stephanie inspired us by the song "What If" which

challenged us to consider that everything- including our trials- is sent

our way to bless us and to bring glory to Him!


After a near death car crash, our speaker Sherry Mehl shared how she

learned that her previous desire for fulfillment through adventure,

marriage, and public office could be gone in an instant. 

She discovered that only a relationship through Jesus Christ can satisfy. 

Only His love can fill the emptiness, forgive us for our wrongs,

 and restore us to rest, hope, and a joyful future!
