I am privileged to announce that Lauren Gully, a candidate for ministry in the PCUSA from our congregation, has successfully passed her trails for ordination!! In addition, she has been approved by the Presbytery of San Francisco where she will be serving as Associate Pastor at the Lafayette-Orinda Presbyterian Church to be ordained at our church on Saturday, September 27 at 2 PM.
This is a great accomplishment for Lauren who just recently graduated from Princeton Seminary and a tremendous honor for our congregation to have her ordained at her home church. I hope that all our members and friends who are available on Saturday, September 27 will be present in worship at 2 PM for her ordination. This is an exceptional opportunity. A reception for Lauren will be held in the fellowship hall following worship.
September continues to be a great month for celebrations! We do still have a few tickets left for our Vintage Vegas Night which promotes and supports our various mission and service ministries within our community, throughout our nation and in various corners of the world. We are continuing to grow in our opportunities for service and want to continue that trend. Vintage Vegas is a fun way to support those who are in need. There will be great food, fun games, a quickie wedding chapel, outstanding entertainment and prizes and gifts to be won!! You can still get tickets on our web site or directly in the church office or at the connect table following worship.
