"Welcome to this place of love and grace. Welcome to this place of hope and perseverance."

So begins our Call to Worship for the past couple of weeks. Hope and perseverance are certainly what this Church is all about. Thanks to hope and perseverance and a lot of help from our friends, San Carlos Community Church now is in better financial and physical shape than it has been for a long time.   We thank our wonderful tenants and volunteers for stepping up and helping us to make the whole property look even better than new.  


Here are some interesting dates from the Church archives;

·         1st meeting for Worship:   December of 1927

·         1st Council Meeting:    February 19, 1928

·         Incorporated by State of California:   July 5, 1928

·         1st Record of Minutes:   April 3, 1929 


And some thoughts on mission and membership:

·         Our mission since 1928 has been to serve God and community.

·         Our mission today specifically is to meet for worship and to maintain our property as a service to the Community, specifically providing a place for The Children's Place, The Cub Scouts, The Lions Club, Junior Matrons and the Fully Alive Church, etc.   A place to vote, meeting space for concerts, lectures, weddings, dances and other activities to be discovered.


We must attract new members by offering an opportunity to worship God and serve the community.   We offer members the opportunity to worship and to serve; to take part in the beginning of a new era for the Mother Church of San Carlos.


The 100th anniversary of town and our Church is great opportunity to get attention.

The most important advertising is word of mouth.   Spread the word.  

Feel free to add any thoughts along these lines.


This coming Sunday will be Palm Sunday, a time to sing some good old hymns.   This Sunday you will hear the good old tunes and some new lyrics to O Sacred Head Sore Wounded and All Glory Laud and Honor. 


The following week I will offer a lecture on President Kennedy and New England March 28 at 7 pm in the Callis and Elaine Room.   Title: 

A Puritan Named Kennedy.   All are welcome.


There will be a Good Friday Service at the Episcopal Church which is five blocks up Arroyo across from Burton Park at Noon on March 29.

Jeremiah 31:31-34

"Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, not like the covenant which I made with their fathers when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant which they broke, though I was their husband, says the LORD. But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it upon their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.  And no longer shall each man teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, `Know the LORD,' for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the LORD; for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more." 


John 12:23-24; 32

And Jesus answered them, "The hour has come for the Son of man to be glorified.   Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.  He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.  Now is the judgment of this world, now shall the ruler of this world be cast out; and I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself."
