Worship Re-Launch Survey
We need your feedback!
We are looking at various ways in which to safely re-launch our worship together. In coordination with State, Local, and CalPac Conference guidelines, we are exploring how and when we can gather in person again. Please fill out the survey here:
We are also looking for people who are interested in being on our Worship RESET Workgroup.

Prayers for The West Coast Fires and Gulf States Storms
California and Western States Wildfire:
As wildfires rage in the Western United States, our CalPac Conference is setting up our response. We ask that you continually keep our firefighters and first responders in prayer, as well as praying for all of those in communities devastated by this disaster.
For the latest information and how you can help, please go to:
Gulf States Storms
As many of you know, our own Pastor Lisa moved here from New Orleans. She has several dear friends and clergy colleagues that have sustained severe damage or even lost their churches and their homes. She is inviting you to help her "adopt" Hennings Memorial United Methodist Church in Sulfur Louisiana. This church is pastored by her dear friend and her first Clergy Mentor, Rev. Juliet Padgam Spencer.
To donate, please go directly to their site at:

Donations Needed for our Unhoused Friends
Towels and washcloths desperately needed for the Shower Program.
Also needed are men's pants and shorts sizes 32-38. Please no size 40+, as we have many, and not much call. Men's shoes are also a real problem for us size 10-14. We continue to need plastic grocery bags. Paper ones do not hold up, so only plastic, please. Also back packs & blankets.
Please make an appointment to drop off items at the church. Robin Rosin will pick up and bring to the proper locations.
Thank you for your generosity!
