Join us on Thanksgiving Day at 10 am for ecumenical Prayer and Praise with three other nearby churches. If you’re free at the end of the day, join us online at 7 pm for a special Thanksgiving time of conversation, check-in, and evening prayers. (Links are available on our Facebook page.)
On Saturday afternoon, look for an Advent kit. You can pick it up at church. We can also drop it off safely on your doorstep (Foster City deliveries only), or we can mail it to you. (Send us your address right away if you want us to mail it.) The kit contains candles and a garland (everything you need for a wreath) and some devotional materials you can use during Sunday worship and throughout Advent.
This week we begin a new season, a new church year, a time of preparation. Anna and Darryl have prepared some great music, everything from chant to Broadway. Lauren will help us commemorate World AIDS Day (December 1), and I’ll preach on Isaiah 40:1-11 and Mark 1:1-8. And we’ll spend time with our special zoom guests Hugo and Hulisse, our neighbors in Hayward. Hugo is about to be deported, Hulisse is his high school daughter, and their story will make the need for immigration justice real. It’s going to be a powerful service. Come join us, and invite your friends and your family members too.
Rev. Jim Mitulski
