The weather was wet but our workers were undeterred! Thanks to all who helped!

On September 3rd, we gave thanks to Rev. Lee Atherton for her caring pastoral presence, while welcoming Pastor Hannah back to WCUC.
How often do you push the limits of any boxes in your life? How is that? Fun? Challenging? Easy? Scary? A piece of cake?
Our church has a new Community Garden! This planter was built as part of our Service Sunday last fall, and this summer we have added some marigolds and herbs to the soil. It is completely wheelchair accessible, and tools are provided so all passing by are encouraged to weed, plant, or harvest as they please. Stop by when you’re in the neighborhood!
Many thanks to our clean up crew who helped weed the Welcome Garden, Main St. and Pine St. Gardens and trim the plants and bushes around the church. They hauled 2 truckloads of debris to the town yard waste site and raked leftover leaves and tree litter from all of the garden areas.
Worship was filled with palms, Sunday School was busy making communion bread and remembering Jesus’ last supper, and the whole congregation gathered outside for a neighborhood palm parade – with ponies! Our festive day ended with pony rides for all who wanted them, including some staff. 🙂
The Welcome Garden was filled on Sunday as we celebrated the end of our summer worship season outside. A very festive fellowship time followed with food, drink, games, and the creation of a huge mandala in the center of our labyrinth. Check out the pictures from the beautiful day!
Thanks to the Dennis Lin Fund, Sunday Fellowship was able to celebrate forty years of ministry in style. Gorgeous outfits, elaborate decorations (complete with a red carpet), enthusiastic dancing, a photo booth, karaoke and delicious food under a tent in the Garden made the SF Prom a day to remember. A toast to the members and friends of Sunday Fellowship throughout the years on whose shoulders we now stand. Dennis, we know you would have loved it!
It was a busy and dynamic day of celebration at WCUC, inside and outside!
