March 16 & April 6
This Lent we’re reviving a tradition – “Soup-er” Sundays. Plan to stay for lunch on Sunday, March 16, as CFE serves up their famous minestrone soup as well as mac and cheese, French bread, and dessert. This is a nice opportunity to linger awhile and chat with new friends and old.
We’ll have another “Soup-er” Sunday on April 6, so be sure and put both on your calendar. See you then.

Give It Up for Lent!
Rummage Sale for 2014 will be Friday, April 11 and Saturday April 12 so start clearing out your “stuff" now. Your Mission Service and Justice Ministry Team (MSJ) is now responsible for the Rummage Sale and will disperse the profits to our outreach/mission projects. Items can be brought to the church now and placed on the stage clearly marked RUMMAGE SALE. Those items will be sorted and stored till the big sale in April. Need pick-up service? Contact Jim Granucci (650-302-9911 or email@example.com Do you have items or clothes that are too nice for a rummage sale? An estate sale specialist and a consignment team will make sure that the church makes top dollar for our mission partners. (Children’s games need to have all the pieces and boxes closed tightly so that the items all stay together. Sports equipment, large upholstered furniture, and mattresses tend not to sell.)
Start your cleaning and let’s make this the best rummage sale yet.
Donna Lindsay and Warren Long, Co-chairs of 2014 Rummage Sale
