Marriage Announcement
We are surprised and delighted to announce the marriage of Laura Fehlbaum and George Zarafili on Thursday, March 14.  They intend to celebrate their vows at the Branch Church of Christ in Dallas, where Laura grew up, sometime in the coming months when family members can be present. Please join us in prayer support of this happy couple as they start their life together. -Marco and Kathy Fehlbaum

Sunday Message with John Wilson
This Sunday’s message will be delivered by John Wilson.

Women’s Fellowship Event
Women’s Fellowship Dinner and a Movie is scheduled for Saturday, March 23rd at 6 pm at the home of Joline Gash. It will be a potluck dinner, so please plan to bring a main dish and a side or dessert. If possible, please let Jenny (at know if you are planning to attend.

Missions Sunday
On Sunday, March 24, we will be taking up our annual contribution to support the missionaries associated with our church. These missionaries are closely connected with our work and we pray that we can support them well. Please prayerfully prepare to contribute to these efforts on Sunday!

Church-Wide Service Day
We will be having a church-wide service day on April 13th at the Malibu Community Labor Exchange and Manna Food Bank. Click this link to sign up for the service day. Feel free to email for more information. We look forward to serving our community together as a church family!

All-Church Fast
The prayer ministry of UCC and the Spiritual Formation team of Campus Ministry are inviting our church family to consider fasting April 1-21 (ending on Easter Sunday).  The purpose of fasting is to renew our reliance on God.  We desire to become more dependent upon him as individuals, but also as a church family.  We desire to come together in unity to pray for each other and to call upon the name of the Lord.  Please consider joining us!  We realize this may not be possible for everyone, but we do petition everyone’s prayers for this time period.  Fasting can be done in various forms:  fasting from certain foods, for instance, chocolate/sugar; fasting from a specific activity, such as social media or watching TV; or fasting from one or meals in a day.  Look for more information in the days to come about what this time can look like!
Planners:  Kathryn Ibarra/Kari Coppinger/Thea Riley/Linda Truschke

His address and food preferences can be found at his Meal Train: Gift cards to Santa Monica-area restaurants and Whole Foods, as well as checks, can also be contributed. You can give them to Linn Griffin at church or bring them to the church office. Thank you!
