A gathering of God's family

From Eddie McCoven, church staff member:

On the afternoon of Sunday, January 27th, we did what few Christians of different denominations do: we came together for a joint worship gathering.

We were lead by Bishops John Dolan (Roman Catholic Diocese of San Diego), Katherine Jefferts Shori (Episcopal Diocese of San Diego) and Andrew Taylor (Pacifica Synod, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America).

We read the scriptures together... 

... and Bishop Katherine delivered a message.

We shared prayers and words of forgiveness...


...and we renewed our commitment to each other as brothers and sisters in Christ.

Our Bishop, the Rev. Dr. Andrew Taylor (center) was one of the worship leaders.

Special thanks to those who helped coordinate the ecumenical gathering, including Rev. Karon Marohn of St. Peter's by-the-Sea Lutheran Church in Ocean Beach (right).

Helping our neighbors in need

From James and Heidi Acosta:

On Sunday, December 9th, we assembled and decorated 30 Christmas Food Baskets for the annual program coordinated by CCSA (Community Christian Service Agency).

Non-perishable food items and money were collected throughout November.

Thanks to all at Clairemont Lutheran who will make Christmas brighter for these families.

Side Note: On Saturday, December 8th, some of our youth and young adults helped out at CCSA's Clairemont neighborhood location (thanks to Pastor Nate for the photos).
