This weekend @BFC: AVP workshop, Green Bags, Trustees, Sunday School, Kirsten Bohl speaking, MOCE

Dear Friends:

It’s a very full weekend at Berkeley Friends Church this time around–and much of August is going to be busy!

1) This Saturday, 8/2, we host the first of a two-part Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) workshop. AVP offers experiential, hands-on workshops that empower people to lead nonviolent lives through affirmation, respect for all, community building, cooperation, creative conflict resolution and trust. The workshop  is a full day; registration & snacks are at 8:30 AM, and the program begins at 9. The second workshop will be Saturday, 8/16. A sliding-scale donation is requested. For more information, see the attached flyer, and if you want to register, contact Dorothy Kakimoto ASAP.

2) Then, on Sunday, 8/3, don’t forget that we are going to bring all of the church’s contributions for the Berkeley Neighborhood Food Project together so we can give thanks and pray for all of the hungry folks in our community. Don’t forget to bring that green bag with you when you leave the house on Sunday, and bring it with you into worship!

That morning, the Trustees Committee will begin the day, meeting at 9 AM. Then, at 10 AM, we’ll have Sunday School classes for children and adults. In meeting for worship at 11 AM, we will gather in shared prayer and quiet, with Kirsten Bohl sharing a message entitled “Sing A New Song,” drawing on Psalm 98, the story of Zacchaeus in  Luke 19, and other texts. Kirsten, Nikki and the younger people will also help us sing a new song together!

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

Please join us!

In Christ’s Light,

Brian Young
