Over the turbulent waves in our lives, Jesus calls us. We get so busy watching the waves, we block out Jesus’ call. Look again. Jesus is calling to us. Lord, help us hear your voice. Come, we place our trust in Jesus.

Friends World Committee on Consultation is hosting a global worship on Saturday, August 15 at 4:00 – 05:30 PDT to mark 100 years since the first world-wide, inter-branch gathering of Quakers in opposition to war in 1920. Time together will focus on what compelled Friends in a post-war environment and what inspires us now to continue in our work for a peaceful world. How has God called us for these 100 years? To what can we testify today? Register for the global worship via Eventbrite to get the Zoom link.
Census 2020: Don’t forget to respond to your notice either online, by phone or by paper form after April 8th. The census will only ask 9 questions and by law cannot be shared with anyone including ICE, the police, or other government agencies. An undercount will have a huge effect on our area. For example, if we have an undercount of 6% in Alameda County, the county will lose $1 billion over 10 years. For more information see the Census website.
