How Would You Feel if You Owned No Clean Underwear?—Bring Undie Donations To Church
This Sunday July 14
We work regularly to support St Luke's Breakfast Program for the Homeless in Long Beach. They always need donations of underwear (the most requested, but least often donated items for homeless shelters). Please bring what you can to church this Sunday, and our volunteers will take them to St Luke's the following Saturday. Mens' and womens' underwear in larger sizes preferred. Thank you!
Radical Sending—2 Classes
This Sunday - July 14 and August 25 after both services,
Board Room
Have you wondered why we end our worship service by sending forth with " Let us go into the world in peace to love and serve the Lord"? Jesus didn't just call people to come, he called them to be sent. Join us as we engage a Church Next video "Radical Sending" and reflect together how St. Francis can live out our mission together as we come together and move out into the world.
