News for Mar 15, 2022


This Sunday

Join us on Zoom this Sunday at 10 am. Our guest preacher will be Erin Wiens St. John, a postulant for ordination in the Episcopal Diocese of California. As both a Millennial and a dedicated Episcopalian, she is preparing for a career finding creative solutions for postmodern, progressive, Protestant congregations, building bridges between the church and her generation. She will bring “a message of hope for a post-COVID Church suffering from a loss of membership and disorientation from the comforting norms. I will connect this to the larger themes of the mainline church decline, especially in the Bay Area.” After worship, our church council will have its monthly meeting. Join us on Zoom a few minutes before 10 am.

Faith In Action works against evictions

Clara of Many Journeys MCC writes that “Faith in Action is asking for help to bring attention and demand government action to prevent the March 31 eviction cliff (as pandemic eviction protections and the rent relief program end).” She recommends:

1. Reading and sharing this Know Your Rights flyer

2. Attending a March 21 rally in front of the County Courthouse

3. Calling state leaders
