Tomorrow, Saturday, 3/18, there are a couple of things going on here at Berkeley Friends Church:
First, in the morning, there will be a work day for the Berkeley Food Pantry from 9:00 AM to noon. Please bring a light snack and wear comfortable clothes that can get dirty. The crew will meet downstairs in the pantry space. For further information, please contact Dharma Galang.
Also beginning at 9 AM, we will host the quarterly gathering of the Christian Friends Conference–Western Region.
