Bible Study starts 7:30 PM on Tuesdays via Zoom. Bible Study is currently reading  Jesus, Christ and Servant of God: Meditations on the Gospel According to John by David Johnson. You do not need to have read or have a copy of the book available as we read a section and then discuss.

Happy Hour – Friday August 28 from 8:00 PM – 9:00 PM.  Join us on the BFC Zoom for a time of hanging out, checking in and enjoying human interaction.

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.

Living Into the Promise, an online program, will be led by Julie Peyton and Marge Abbott and hosted by the Ben Lomond Quaker Center, September 4–6. During this weekend together, we will each have opportunity to explore the fears that bind us and the possibility (or reality) of a power that raises up the good in each of us.

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.
