It's not too late to donate! Items are still needed for the Seafarers Ministry ditty bags, and you'll see (below) a list of suggested things to give. Thanks to all who have already given.

All women and girls are invited to come to the church parlor to help pack the ditty bags on Saturday, September 23rd, at 10:30 a.m. There will be a potluck lunch at noon, following the packing. Please bring a dish to share.

Then, on Tuesday, October 24th, everyone is invited to go to the Oakland headquarters of the Seafarers Ministry of the Golden Gate to deliver the ditty bags and help pack more of them. We will leave the church parking lot at 9:00 a.m., and return in the mid-afternoon. Lunch will be provided. If you are interested and would like more information, please call Barbara Chicks at 650-209-5123, or email me at
