Beloved Community Notes
Are you interested in helping to shape and build a new intercultural community from the ground up. We are a church of Mexican and anglo leaders, with really great music, sophisticated peace theology, and a joyful approach to all of life, even in the midst of hard times (because there is always love). We’re very small; that can feel strange to folks who might be new to this. But consider participating in this fresh intercultural exploration of faith, in the Spirit of Jesus Christ.

June 30 - pastor Vern will offer a reflection on the power of structure and hospitality in Christian practice.
At 4:30 on this Sunday, Marilyn and Vern invite you to their home for a BBQ and conversation about how we would like to structure our potluck and worship gatherings. You may bring salads or desserts to accompany. Single malt, margaritas, and wine, as well as juices and sodas will be available. This will be one of two patio events for now. If you can’t make this one, stay tuned for a date in July.

Somos una comunidad de fe intencional e inclusiva, reunida de todos los pueblos,
todos los colores, sexualidades y experiencias, mientras caminamos en el amor de Cristo.
May these gifts of joyful sharing and generosity create a community full of love and actions for Christ's peace here and in all the earth.
This church has lots of young people and also under-used grandparents! But very few children. Come help grow our children and youth program - a curriculum for "peace allies" is under development. But if you need family, baby-sitters, relationship connections, that's all ready right now. Come see what you think. It is a lovely, small, trust-worthy, joyful congregation! :-)
¡Esta iglesia tiene muchos jóvenes y abuelos subutilizados! Pero muy pocos niños. Venga a ayudar a crecer nuestro programa para niños y jóvenes: se está desarrollando un plan de estudios para "aliados de la paz". Pero si necesita familiares, niñeras, relaciones de pareja, ya está todo listo. Ven a ver lo que piensas. ¡Es una congregación encantadora, pequeña, digna de confianza y alegre! :-)
