This Sunday, 8/6, @BFC: BNFP bags, Trustees, Sunday School, Worship, MOCE

Another month rolls around, and another first Sunday–here’s what’s on:

This Sunday, 8/6, it’s again BFC’s bi-monthly collection day for our contributions to the Berkeley Neighborhood Food Project, so please bring your green bags with you to bring into worship!

The day’s schedule begins with the Trustees, gathering to consider the care of our building and grounds at 9 AM. Then Sunday School for children and adults convenes at 10 AM. We gather for Worship at 11 AM, with song, prayer, silence, and a message based on Genesis 32–Jacob’s struggle with… [God? An angel? A
stranger in the night? A guilty conscience? Someone/thing else?]

Fellowship time follows worship, and then at 1 PM, the Missionary, Outreach and Christian Education Committee will meet.

Please gather with us!

This Sunday, 7/30, @BFC: Singing Ensemble, Sunday School, Worship, Fellowship!

A fifth Sunday offers us the opportunity to meet together with a bit more leisure than most others… so: the Singing Ensemble gathers for a rehearsal at 9 AM. Then our regular Sunday School classes meet at 10 AM. In Worship at 11 AM, we will sing and pray together, be ministered to by the Ensemble, hear a message based upon Genesis 28, and wait in quiet to hear the Lord’s response. Fellowship time follows worship, for as long as Friends would like to enjoy one another’s presence!

Please join us!

Hope to have you with us as we pray and listen together!

This Sunday, 7/9, @BFC: Sunday School, Worship Sharing, Singing Ensemble

It’s a special Sunday at Berkeley Friends Church, with schedule as follows:

  • Sunday School for children and adults, convening at 10 AM;
  • Worship for all at 11 AM, with song, prayer, and corporate quiet, and, instead of a prepared message–
  • Rather than having one single speaker, we are inviting everyone to share a well-loved Bible verse, saying, poem or song during worship. Tell us what it means to you, or why it struck you when you discovered it, or anything else you’d like to say about it. This will help us to get to know each other a little bit better, and help deepen our time together with God; additionally, it may give us some sense of what the Apostle Paul was talking about when he wrote, “When you assemble, each one has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification.” (I Corinthians 14:26b).

Fellowship time following worship;

Singing Ensemble rehearsal at 1 PM. And please also keep Guiseppe Rensi, Stanley Ngesa, and me in your prayers Sunday and all through the coming week, as we gather with other Friends from across the US, the Caribbean, and East Africa, for the Stoking the Fire gathering and the Friends United Meeting Triennials, in Wichita, Kansas.

God’s abundant blessings to all!
