Your weekly look at what's happening

  Greetings, 
Hope you were able to join us for either Cameron House Carnival or worship last week. Both were great. Pastor Kimberly is back in the pulpit this Sunday after two weeks away. Hope you'll be there to welcome her back to the pulpit. We'll also be celebrating the divine feminine and all the ways that God is a Mother to us. Look forward to seeing you. 
Blessings,

 Presbyterian Church in Chinatown
Women's Fellowship will meet on MONDAY, MAY 22, 7PM in the Library.  As we review the PW purpose, we want you to come share thoughts and ideas on how we carry out the purpose in all that we plan to do, looking into the future:    

Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves:
To nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study,
To support the mission of the church worldwide,
To work for justice and peace, and
To build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and witnesses to the promise of God's kingdom.

All women are welcome to participate in this time together while sipping tea and enjoying dessert!  No RSVP required; but if you have questions, please contact Mildred at  mildredhal@sbcglobal.net

'Chinatown Rising' Documentary Film Seeking Support
Harry Chuck and Josh Chuck are currently producing a documentary film, called 'Chinatown Rising.' Through interviews with activists on the frontlines of advocacy efforts, along with never-before-seen film footage captured by Harry throughout several decades, they tell the story of activism in 1960s and 70s San Francisco Chinatown. If you would like to watch a three-minute trailer, find out more about this important project, and how you can support, please visit:  http://kck.st/2pCqaLP
Also, checks can be written to 'Donaldina Cameron House' with 'Chinatown Rising' in the note section. Thanks!
