Food Pantry Volunteers Celebration, Saturday, May 18

Everyone is invited to a food pantry volunteer celebration gathering on Saturday, May 18 at 2:30pm.  We'll share food and stories and have time to hang out together.  More details to follow.

Our Next Love Feast is on Pentecost, Sunday, May 19

All are invited to celebrate Pentecost.  What better way to celebrate Pentecost (Diversity in Unity) than to have a Love Feast of food representing the different cultures of our congregation and neighborhood.  You are invited to bring your favorite food to share. Feel free to be creative in the types of food you bring.

Dessert will be provided, so no need to bring.

In support of our dear sister, Nina Pang, we would like to take the opportunity during our Love Feast to write notes and cards to her as she begins another round of chemotherapy.  (See the Prayer Request below).  During the meal, there will be a table with pens and notecards for you to use.  These personal notes will be delivered in person to Nina at the end of May by Linda Kay.  See Jennifer or Caroline with any questions.

Church Retreat, Friday, September 27 to Sunday, September 29

Before you take off for your various vacation destinations, don’t forget to mark your calendars for our upcoming church retreat at Redwood Christian Park in Boulder Creek. This time, we actually have pastors, in fact, two pastors.  It’s going to be a hoot!

Tiffany Avenue Garage Sale, Saturday, May 18

Mario Nunez is having his annual Tiffany Avenue garage sale on May 18, and is taking donations of clothing, toys, shoes, kitchenware, accessories, CDs, DVDs, games, and small household goods that might be someone else's treasures. He cannot accept furniture, as he does not have enough storage space. 

Mario would like to receive your donated goods by Sunday, May 12. Please call or text him at (415) 710-0437 if you have any questions or would like to make arrangements to drop off your items.
