SOS Week Oct. 19 - 26
All Hands On Deck For SOS Week! CCB will host some 30 guests from the South Oakland Shelter the week of Oct. 19-26. Please check out the volunteer sign-up display in front of the stage and join the team. We need morning, evening and overnight hosts, meal preparers and servers, drivers, food donors, set-up and tear-down helpers, and launderers. The sign-up display also features specific shift times and a description of duties. See also the buckets for personal hygiene items (shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, razors, shaving cream, deodorant, combs, brushes, and lotions) and for prizes (dollar-store items for men, women and children) for Bingo night. Our co-hosts are Central Woodward Christian Church and Northminster Presbyterian Church. Got questions? Contact Chris Mead cwm1947@comcast.net or Elaine Winter erw1945@aol.com.

Our Capital Journey continues….
With Giant Steps completed –
Our Sanctuary roof has been replaced and new skylights are installed.
Our Parking Lot has been resurfaced and striped.

And Planning for kitchen updates is well underway.

Your generosity makes it all possible. With over $380,000 received so far, we are more than half way to the $672,000 pledged, in less than a quarter of our three year journey.

Thanks to all and also to our CapIT Committee for their dedication and perseverance! So let's celebrate surpassing the halfway mark and completion of two huge goals!
