It has been a demanding week. I look forward to worshipping with you on Sunday and finding encouragement in our faith and in our faith community.
As you are able, please bring a frozen turkey with you to church this Sunday. City Team will come by mid-morning to pick them up. They are trying to collect 5,000 turkeys from congregations and businesses around the Bay Area to help in their caring work with families in need.
Prayers for Andy Meckstroth (former pastor of Oakland First Baptist Church), Lynette Delbridge and family. Andy’s father died early in the week. They are planning a post-Christmas memorial service.
