Two events this week: East Bay Gives and Way of the Spirit

Dear Friends:

We were missing a lot of people today at worship, so I wanted to make sure everyone is aware of these upcoming events:

1) This Tuesday, 5/5, is East Bay Gives Day, sponsored by the East Bay Community Foundation. This 24-hour online giving event is a great way to donate to not-for-profit organizations going fantastic work in the East Bay, including the Berkeley Food Pantry. $150,000 in awards will be given out to participating organizations for the most unique donors in a given hour, or the largest amount raised in an hour, etc. Any time on Tuesday between midnight at 11:59 PM, please log in and donate to help the Food Pantry at

(Note: unfortunately, donations must be made via the above website in order to count towards the totals.)

2) Then on Thursday, 5/7, don’t forget the opportunity to learn about the Way of the Spirit. This is a group study/retreat program that empowers and strengthens Spirit-led service and ministry. Both pastoral and unprogrammed Friends from the Northwest, California & elsewhere participate. Come to hear more from Christine Hall, the program’s coordinator, on Thursday evening from 7:00 to 8:30 PM. See the attached for more information.
