Save the date! This year's CropWalk will be Sunday, June 12!

The CropWalk meeting on Ja
nuary 21 was fruitful. Adults and youth  met together to lay out this year's CropWalk plan. This year we are having a Treasure Hunt theme where teams of participants will solve clues and crack codes to walk their three miles. On February 7, 2016 at 2:00 PM the Planning Team will meet at First Presbyterian Church of San Rafael . We will explore the entire downtown area to determine hiding places for the clues, basic route layout, and local businesses who might want to participate on that day. All are welcome to come - especially youth! For more information, click here .

Please join us for a special six-part series during Lent in which we will read and reflect on Howard Thurman's seminal work Jesus and the Disinherited. Each week will reflect on a different chapter of Thurman's work and discuss the different theological understandings of God that are present and that continue in today's society. We will end each session with a guided meditation and journaling. If you would like to participate, please let Pastor Tracy know by February 7 s o that she can order enough books for everyone.
