Three More Important UCC Updates

thanksgiving day 2018 flyer final-1We received three separate important updates this evening:

#1: Malibu Canyon Road is now open in both directions for all vehicle traffic. Drivers, however, should be mindful of falling debris in the canyon, including loose dirt and rocks. Due to fire suppression activities in the area, rocks may have become dislodged from water drops, and topsoil in certain areas may be unstable.

#2: Pepperdine will host a community-wide Thanksgiving Dinner on Thursday, November 22, from 11am-2pm. We are hoping to have resident members who would be willing to provide food and/or volunteer to work at the event. There are email addresses on the flyer (above) for people to contact if they would like to volunteer and/or contribute food.

#3: We have a great opportunity to serve our Malibu Community: The Malibu Recovery Center (down by the Malibu Library) needs “greeters” next week. They could use 10 people a day for the following hours of operation: Monday – Wednesday 10 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Friday – Saturday 10 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. They plan two, four-hour shifts per day. I believe what is involved is welcoming people and showing them the assets available and how to move through the process. Please email hung.le@pepperdine.edu if you are interested or have questions. I hope we can get as many of us there to help as possible.

Updates

#1: I am sad to report that two more of our campus ministry interns lost their apartments at Calamigos. Please pray for all three who are suffering losses: Conrad Parker, Thea Riley, and Emily Sabino.

#2: Campus is accessible for our Sunday morning class and worship. Both will be in Stauffer Chapel this week. The PCH is open for those coming from Santa Monica, and Topanga is open for those coming from the Valley.

#3: The office will be closed on Monday because there will be a planned power outage on the Malibu campus from 8am-8pm. We will be finding locations to work, but no one will be at the office.

I look forward to seeing many of you tomorrow.
