Sustainable Solano

After worship recently, we had two people from Sustainable Solano present some ideas in the next steps of our partnership. Some of the topics covered included: Solano Gardens project, Permiculture, urban landscaping, using our site for educational workshops, planting drought resistant trees/plants, renewal/maintenance of our existing garden, and the possibility of new landscaping in the large grass areas in front of the Fellowship Hall.

All of us in attendance are very excited about working alongside them to make this happen.
So what is next?

Solano Gardens is a county funded agency that is a section of Sustainable Solano. Our partnership with them could include: more food production, using roof water & swales for irrigation, they can provide seeds, trees, plants & volunteers for installation, research, advice, and consultation. We make the design with their assistance, then they help us make it happen. And get this… It is free!! What a deal!

A collaboration contract has been drawn up and will be considered by the Admin Council. If approved, this project could begin in the design process as early as April. Should the Admin Council approve the contract, a committee should be formed to work directly with Sustainable Solano. If you are interested in this, please let Allison Mezzera know!

Worship Planning Retreat

On Saturday, March 21, from 11:00-3:00, we will have our next Worship Planning Retreat with our Sabbatical Minister “Trail Guides,” Bill and Mary Jacobs. This will be an opportunity for you to meet the Jacobs and to help envision and chart a course for our worship services during Pastor Christy's Sabbatical time (May 16-Aug. 16). Everyone is welcome! So, bring yourselves, your ideas, a lunch, and snacks to share.

Lent 2020

Our theme for Lent 2020 is Nothing Can Keep Light Out . . . “neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation. . . .” We will connect this theme with the stories of Nicodemus, the Woman at the Well, the Man Born Blind, Lazarus, and the events leading up to Jesus’ death and resurrection.

We hope you will make plans to join us for worship each Sunday during Lent, as well as our special Maundy Thursday Service on April 9, and our Easter Breakfast and Egg Hunt on April 12!
