Jonathan's Place - September 27th
FOOD DONATIONS &/or VOLUNTEERS to prepare & the food are needed!
On August 24th we will provide dinner to residents of JONATHAN’S PLACE (the homeless shelter on Mill Street) in San Rafael. We have secured the 4th Thursday of each month in the meal rotation and will be providing supper for 40 adults. Complete details of our responsibilities for this dinner, including preparatory tasks are available from the church office or on the bulletin board in the narthex.
All are welcome to sign up to assist with this program, by donating food items and/or assisting with cooking. For September, we would love to receive the bounty of any home vegetable gardens too! (See the signup sheet in the narthex for details.)
Please note: ALL FOOD DONATIONS for this monthly meal need to be dropped off at the church no later than 9:00 AM WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27th as they will be needed for the food prep that day.
On Wednesday, SEPTEMBER 27th from 10am – 12 noon we will prepare the meal in our MLC Parish Hall kitchen. Four volunteers will be needed as “many hands make light work”! This is a great opportunity to work together in a few fun hours of service. Details will be posted on the church bulletin board in the narthex where you can also sign up to bring food or volunteer to help cook the meal. Questions may be directed to Ruth Floyd or the church office.
THANK YOU to everyone who has volunteered to prepare food in the past, to those who have donated food, and to the drivers who load and deliver food to the shelter! Your help providing assistance and food for this meal is very much appreciated!

Burrito Roll Volunteers - Sept 16th @ 10am
We’re on a roll and we need your help!
Our Fall Burrito Roll coincides with the 10th Anniversary observance of ELCA’s “God’s Work, our Hands”. Please set aside the morning of Saturday, September 16th, from 10:00am – noon and plan to join our merry band in preparing breakfast burritos for folks at both the Brown House Family Center and the Voyager Carmel Center. Can we beat our standing record of 120 rolled burritos? Help us find out!
All are welcome. Hope you can join us!
Men's Lunch - Thursdays at noon
Men – you’re invited every Thursday @ noon!
Each week we meet for lunch at a restaurant in Marin. Newcomer’s are always welcome! Contact the church office (415-924-3782) to see where we’re meeting this week.
You can also find our service from the Sunday before the lunch, on FaceBook or YouTube and find the announcements at the end of the service for the lunch location. (This is a little more work but if you are not able to reach someone by phone, it works!)
Meal Bags for the Hungry
Pick them up in the church narthex
Please help yourself to the meal bags prepared by the SOCIAL ACTION team and placed in the narthex. They are for dispensing to anyone you come across who is hungry or in need. (FYI), if you keep them in the car, be sure to store in the front seat for easy access and avoid frantic searches while driving. Many thanks for helping to distribute these.
