Your weekly look at what's happening
  
Greetings,
I hope everyone was able to be here for Max Hum's baptism on Sunday. It truly was a special time in the life of our congregation. And afterwards, our Adaptive Leadership Team gave the congregation an update on what they've been working on.
This Sunday is Race Relations Sunday and our guest preacher is Bruce Reyes-Chow. Bruce is the former Moderator of the PC(USA) and the founding pastor of my other worshipping community, Mission Bay Community Church. I hope you'll be able to join us. 10:45 AM at PCC. Hope to see you there.
Blessings,
Tad Hopp
