SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP @ 10am

December 10, 2023
Second Sunday of ADVENT

Join us at 10:00am in our Sanctuary for an in-person service of worship or tune into our online service presented via YouTube.

This Sunday, Rev. Donald Shenk will be leading us as we continue the journey through Advent and delve into the story of John the Baptist in the wilderness as prophesied in Isaiah 40:1-11 and revealed in Mark 1:4-8.

Watch all services on YouTube here.

“God comforts us in order that we may…become what God wanted us to be from the beginning, namely God’s children…empowered by a love that will not let us go. Accept the comfort of this God, luxuriate in it, put it on like your finest coat, and then go out and be God’s child in a world eager to return home.”
Rev. John C. Holbert

SERVICE PROJECT

SOCKS! SOCKS! SOCKS!

Everyone is encouraged to join with our children to collect new socks to provide to homeless shelters over the course of the next three months.

Place them in the Narthex to create a mountain of socks!

We are an OPEN & AFFIRMING (ONA) member of the United Church of Christ.

ONA churches have adopted an “Open and Affirming” covenant welcoming all people, without regard to sexual orientation and gender identity, into the life and ministry of the congregation.

Asian Americans Advancing Justice Southern California

Pastor Donald, Thank you for your continued support. I hope you and the rest of the congregation are doing well. We wouldn’t be able to do the work that we do without your partnership. Sorry for the late acknowledgement letter for your 2022 contribution. Thanks to your support, we are able to provide free legal clinics and services, bystander intervention trainings and advocate for policy. In the last legislative session, we were able to secure over $700M for our communities through several legislative initiatives.

The Nature Conservancy

Supporters like you are critical to this work – thank you for your commitment to protecting nature. In the face of a changing climate, biodiversity loss, and population growth, nature in California needs us now more than ever. All the challenges ahead of us or significant, they are solvable. With your help, TNC is working to save the state’s iconic forests from wildfire, conserve precious water resources, connect wild spaces to provide habitat for plants and wildlife, and much more.

Friends In Deed

We could not do what we do without people like you! Thank you for helping us to make life better for people who make unthinkable choices because they have run out of better options. We appreciate you and your support of our work!

Foothill Unity Center

Thank you for your generous donation. Your contribution significantly impacts the lives of housed and unhoused, low-income individuals and families that we serve in our community. To date, 34% of families accessing our services are new to the Center, which is 31% more individuals than we served in 2019, pre-pandemic times. We see our community’s increase in need and with your help continue to address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Your generosity allows us to continue to work for the health and well-being of our community members. Your gift brings hope.

Aid Africa

Thank you for your generous donation to help improve the lives of the rural families in Northern Uganda. The money you give turns into tangible items that improve the lives of very poor people. Aid Africa supplies materials, expertise and especially education. None of our projects would be successful without instruction on their implementation and use and the labor of the villagers. more

Open and Affirming Coalition

Thank you for your generous donation to the Open and Affirming Coalition of the United Church of Christ. This time of year inspires much reflection and thoughtful meditation and right now, above all, we feel gratitude. You, our donors, are invaluable to us and our work. ... Wishing you every blessing and the deepest joy, Andrew G. Lang, Executive Director

Peppermint Ridge

Pastor Shenk:  Thank you so much for your recent gift.  That was so very generous.  I can hardly wait until I can come and thank you in person.  I hope you and all your congregants are safe and healthy during this time.  It is a crazy time for sure.  Thank you for remembering the Ridgers. My Best, Tracy Mauser Peppermint Ridge, Director of Major Gifts

Hoving Home

Thank you for your generous gift this season! We watch God continue to work miracles in the lives of the ladies in our Homes [there are five across the nation]. Your generosity gives women with difficult pasts a personal experience of the joy and hope found in walking with Christ at Christmas and throughout the year. You’re changing lives, you’re transforming families, and you’re bringing glory to God through your partnership. Thank you!
