Crafters unite - Sat April 7 - 9 to noon
Crafters Or Wanna-Be's:
This Saturday April 7, 9:00 to Noon.
Do you work with yarn, paper, fabric or paint? Do you want to be able to come together with others who do the same or to expand your knowledge?
Saturday, April 7, is a trial date for anyone who would like to meet in the board room to take advantage of the long tables, good lighting and quiet setting. See what projects others have and share yours. If you are interested but can't make the date, please call or text Anna Eakins (310 297-0701).
Hope to see you there!

Thank you 'Eggstremely'!
Thank you everyone for filling and providing a fabulous number of plastic eggs for our annual Easter Egg Hunt! For me it was such a generous example of the love in our parish for our children. Thank you too to the Great Easter Bunny! As many, if not more, adults wanted photos with the EB as children.

It is always appreciated for empty eggs to be returned to us. There is a basket ready to fill in the parish office. Thanks again!!! Suzanne Gatlin.

And a Thank you from Paula+ and Peter+
A meaningful Lent, an engaging Holy Week and a celebratory Easter ushered in this glorious Easter season. Many of you were involved with planning, preparing, and participating to make all of this possible. Thank you all who have served in these worshipful experiences together, whether it is in writing for the devotional, serving in services, beautifying our worship spaces, teaching our classes for children and adults, leading in worship in word and in song, taking care of many behind the scenes tasks, feeding us and cleaning up, serving in worship services, and being Christ's presence to each other, especially to our visitors and newcomers (and we've probably missed listing a few more things...). A heart-felt thank you to you all... We love serving you and serving alongside of you!

We have recently completed our process of updating the Mission and Vision statements of St. Francis Church.
Please join us in this conversation to find out from Paula+, Peter+ and the Mission and Vision Team about what this means and where we go from here!

and to share the light of Christ in the world.
