Brunch Announcements!

The infamous 20s30s brunch returns THIS SUNDAY!

Sunday Oct 14th, 12-2

Join us for a fun time and fantastic food in the upper parish hall following the 11:15 service.

We’ll be having some fabulous lasagna and hearing from our guest speaker the director of the Neighborhood Youth Association in Venice, an awe-inspiring afterschool program.

Cost is $10

If you’re a traditional service attender you can join us before brunch for pumpkin spice chai and snacks (and help set up!)

Hamburger Happy Hour and Traditional/Alternative Service Mixer

Wednesday Oct 17th 6-9

We’re breaking out from the church brunch cycle and hitting up one of the best new burger places in town: Rascal.

They have a burger happy hour.  Their signature burger is only $5 from 5-7 so drop in and grab a burger (or chicken or fish sandwich) and a drink and get to know some people who go to “that other service.”

Gay and Lesbian BBQ at the rectory

Sunday Oct 21 4-7 PM

Joe Becci will be cooking up some of his famous BBQ ribs.

From Rachel: I hope you all will consider coming to the bbq on the 21st. Yes, it’s technically a Gay and Lesbian Ministry event, but you don’t have to be gay to go! We will be talking about doing some volunteer work at the LA Gay and Lesbian Center and we’d love to have you all involved in that. I think we will end up doing work with the homeless youth there – and many of those kids are homeless because their parents kicked them out for being gay (reading between the lines here: for religious reasons). I think it’s important for church groups like ours to let them know they are okay and loved by God. It’s equally important that straight people tell them that – so we’d love your involvement
