Stop Hunger Now
Sign up now to help package 20,000 meals that will be shipped worldwide in the effort to fight hunger. We'll have a quick lunch after the 10:45 am service on September 18 (this is why we need you to sign up so we can get a head count!) and then we'll get started. This job is fun and easy and we need everyone's help to get it done; youngsters, oldsters, and everyone in-between! Sign up here.

Sunday, October 2 at 1:00 pm. Please join in on this year's Crop Hunger Walk. Last year we raised over $22k to fight hunger abroad and right here on the Peninsula. Thank you! Now let's do it again. Walk, saunter, or run to make a difference. One mile, two miles, or whatever you can do. It is a fun afternoon and a worthy cause. Register here. Contact the Service Team for more info.
