Worship Service every Sunday at 10:30 a.m
Join us in participating in God's Work / Our Hands in a whole new way!
On Sunday, September 8th from 2 - 5 pm we will gather with our sister churches in the East Bay to celebrate and strengthen our shared EBLP ministries, including our Youth Parish (Pastor Craig), Nursing Homes (Pastor Ned) and Giving is Receiving. There will also be showcase space for other ministries to share their stories and lift up their volunteers.
Importantly, this is NOT a fundraiser or a sign-up event. The organizers just want to raise awareness and build friendships across our churches.
However, there WILL be on-site multi-congregation service projects to participate in. These will include advocacy letter writing and park clean up next door to United. We are hoping for a few more projects so we can really embody the God's Work / Our Hands ethic.
Food, drinks, games for kids, and music will be provided. No speeches or sermons. This is a celebration of our service to the East Bay community, and we really hope you will join!
