Here’s what’s happening this weekend at Berkeley Friends Church:
1) Saturday, 8/10, is the bimonthly Harvest Day for the Berkeley Neighborhood Food Project. All of the donations from the various neighborhoods will be coming in to the Food Pantry that morning. Volunteers are still needed to receive, weigh, sort and store the donations! You can come by as early as 9:30 AM and there will be things to do through 1 PM.
Also, if you’re participating in BFC’s “neighborhood” and didn’t bring in your bag last Sunday, you’re welcome to bring yours by any time between 10 AM and 12:30 PM.
2) On Sunday, 8/11, things start with our Sunday School classes for adults and children at 10 AM. In worship at 11 AM, it will be our privilege to hear from Bolivian Friend Alicia Lucasi, who will share a message entitled “On the Love of Neighbor”, drawing on Romans 13:9-10 and other Scripture passages.
Fellowship time follows worship, during which Alicia will do a presentation on the work of the Bolivian Quaker Education Fund.
Finally, the SInging Ensemble will rehearse at 1 PM.
3) A reminder that I will be away from Berkeley leading a delegation to Israel/Palestine with Christian Peacemaker Teams from this Sunday, 8/11, to Wednesday, 8/28. My next day back inthe office will likely be Friday the 30th. If there are any immediate needs during my absence, please contact Nikki Gage or another member of M&C.
The Peace of Christ to each one of you!
In Christ’s Light,
Pastor, Berkeley Friends Church
