DURING THIS TIME of CORONA VIRUS giving of yourself is the greatest way to love God and to love your neighbor (our vision as a church). The Board of Deacons organizes ministry teams to provide care for the entire church family and often to the community beyond. These teams welcome participation from members and nonmembers alike. Training and support are enthusiastically provided! For information please contact Rev. Jan Cook.
The congregation is invited to help extend God’s love to homeless neighbors by donating items for Love Kits. The goal is to provide 100 kits for the San Marino Police Department. They are relying on us for support, so they can give Love Kits to any homeless person they encounter. Please drop off kits at the church office Tuesday - Friday, 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. through APRIL 23.

TON OF FOOD 2021
DROP OFF Sunday April 18, 9:00 - 11:00 am San Marino Community Church
2021 is our most critical year for collection. Together we can provide hundreds of families with a lifeline for another day. How? By sharing non-perishable food items, prayers, and love with the food ministry of our sister church, Iglesia de la Comunidad. Deacons will be waiting to collect groceries from your car in front of the church at our first “drive-thru” Ton of Food collection. It’s easy and convenient and the impact on a community in need can’t be overstated.
If Sunday, April 18 drop-off isn’t possible you are welcome to drop off outside the church office anytime the prior week. Special thanks to Fedde Furniture for use of their truck!
Start collecting healthy, non-perishable food today!
