Sunday Message with Kindy De Long
This Sunday’s message will be delivered by Kindy De Long.

Missions Sunday Update 
Thank you to everyone who supported our missionaries last Sunday! We have currently collected $18,677.15 for the missions fund. For the next two Sundays, we will continue to collect contributions for the missions fund. Please prayerfully consider contributing to these efforts over the course of the next two weeks!

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

Meal Train for Rob Terrell

Please consider bringing Rob Terrell a meal; all information 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!
