Berkeley Food Pantry will have its summer work day (tomorrow) Saturday, August 4 from 9:30 AM to 12:00 noon. We will have bagels and coffee in the morning to help us start our day. First Congregational Church’s Young Adult Group will be at the work day to help, so please come to enjoy volunteering and getting to know our First Congregational Church friends. If you are interested in helping, please speak to Dharma Galang, Director.

Choir will meet next Sunday, August 12, at 1:00 PM.

The Berkeley Neighborhood Food Project’s next Harvest Day is Saturday, August 11. Please bring all your non-perishable contributions together this Sunday, August 5, so we can give thanks together, and pray for all of the hungry folks in our community. Also, help will be needed on Harvest Day from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM. We need more volunteers in August because our regular crew is on vacation. If you are interested in helping, please contact Amy St. George, Pantry Manager, or Dharma Galang, Pantry Director.

SAVE THE DATE! Sunday evening September 16: A Very Special Fundraising Dinner for The Food Pantry at local vegan restaurant Sanctuary Bistro! 30% of the evening’s meals’ profits will go to The Food Pantry.

Now that Micah Bales and Faith Kelly have accepted our call to become co-pastors of Berkeley Friends Church, everyone is encouraged to read Micah’s blog. Micah welcomes phone calls: see Tomi!

Micah and Faith plan to submit an insert for our bulletin each month until their arrival in Berkeley in 2019. See the first one in Sunday’s printed version, written by Faith Kelley!
