News for February 20, 2024


This Sunday, Feb 25: In-person service at 10am

Our guest preacher on Sunday will be our own Caje Remedios. His topic is "The Three G's" which he defines as Gratitude, Goodness and Grace. David Wartman will be the worship leader.


Zoom will not be available this Sunday. Sorry for the inconvenience.


Church Council will meet after worship.


The Giving Sunday offering for February is for Puente de la Costa Sur, offering services to the South Coast communities of Pescadero, La Honda, Loma Mar and San Gregorio. What began years ago with the Pescadero UCC church repairing bicycles for the farmworkers has grown into a center for all kinds of services, from ESL to community health. Their next big event is the upcoming Farmworker Convention in March.

Starting in Sept 2023, recordings of our Taize services are also on the YouTube page.


Church directory updated

The online church directory (in the Members section of the website) is now easily maintained. Marilyn Courter took on the project of converting it to google sheets, and now she can quickly add or fix entries as needed. For example, the Hasse's new building number is already in the directory! If you find anything that needs fixing, let Marilyn know.
