This weekend @BFC: Pantry bag packing, Singing Ensemble, Sunday School, Stewardship Sunday, Monthly Meeting

Dear Friends:

Another active weekend at Berkeley Friends Church! Here’s what’s what:

1) Saturday morning, 11/15, will be our second Thanksgiving bag packing event for the many families from Berkeley and Albany that depend on the Food Pantry in the holiday season. Come anytime between 10:30 AM and 12:30 PM; we will try to pack many more bags than we were able to the first time.

Note also that a Food Pantry work crew will also be painting the reception room on Saturday–if you’d rather paint than pack, they might need some assistance.

2) On Sunday, 11/16, the Singing Ensemble will rehearse at 9 AM; then our regular Sunday School classes for children and adults will meet at 10 AM (parents: don’t forget the special party for Kirsten and the kids!). We gather for worship at 11 AM, with a focus on stewardship; the message will be shared by Keith Barton, from various parts of the story of Jacob/Israel (Genesis 28 and following).

Our monthly potluck lunch follows worship; please bring a dish to share if you can, or a few dollars to help with the purchase of supplies. (If you are bringing something to eat, please also bring a list of ingredients so that people know what’s in your dish.) Then at 1 PM, we will have our Monthly Meeting with a Concern for Business. Members should please attend, and all others are welcome.

Please join us for service, learning, worship and fellowship in the Lord!

In Christ’s Light,

Brian Young
