Happy Saturday. I trust the day will hold good things for each of you.

Tomorrow’s Coffee Hour is in honor of Charlene Wolf who is retiring after being our Office Assistant (Responsible for Sunday Bulletin and Transmitter) for almost nine years. She deserves a very hearty thank you for the wonderful job she has done!

Our Outreach Offering this month is the America For Christ Offering. Here,  The Reverend Lisa Harris Lee, Director of Healing and Transforming Communities for the American Baptist Home Mission Societies, describes its significance



The Oakland Marathon takes place this morning. It may impact your usual route to church. Here is a list of road closures. Public transit will be affected.



Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Pastor Jim
