Watch Rita Mancera's message
Last Sunday, our guest speaker was Rita Mancera. She is Deputy Executive Director of Puente, a community resource center which serves the area of the San Mateo coast that has been heavily affected by fires. Rita joined Puente in 2006, and is currently responsible for integrating all aspects of Puente’s programs and activities. Her goals are to close the gap in education, increase youth services, expand the development of local leadership, and support local families in moving out of poverty. Watch her talk or see our worship slides.
Remembering David Nathanson
We are sorry to announce that long-time CHC member David Nathanson passed away Aug 27 at the age of 91. He was living in Portland, where he had gone three years ago to be near his daughter, Lori. David was a history buff, and always had something interesting to add to our talkback time. Read more about David in his obituary. A memorial service is being planned, and we will update you with details.
South Coast fire relief fund
Our friends at Puente write: "Our staff has joined efforts with the Red Cross, Human Service Agency of San Mateo County and the Sheriff’s Department to set up an evacuation center. Over 60 families have been provided with hotel vouchers. We expect to get more requests as the fire grows. Puente staff will continue staffing the evacuation center in Half Moon Bay to provide support to individuals and families." To help, donate here and select "fire relief fund."
