Harmony Gathering - Casual Evening Church - Last Wed of Every Month

Pastor Michele Robbins has designed a new offering for families who want to bring their kids to some kind of church, but find formal church services stressful or Sundays packed with activities. 

This Harmony Gathering is designed to be a multi-generational gathering including families, college students and other community members. Instead of a sermon, there will be lots of upbeat music (secular & sacred) and ways to interact through storytelling, drama, dance, crafts/art and other creative expressions.

We will begin with Dinner (often potluck) at 5:30.

It’s a come as you are celebration, a time of connection, a place to learn and grow in Christ.

Join us on the Last Wednesday of each month, from 5:30 - 7:30pm at St Mark's UMC.

Orinda City Council Meeting

The Orinda City Council will be considering a resolution to name our city a "Sanctuary City" or "Compassionate Community" (or whatever designation is chosen) to let it be known that Orinda is a community where [1] criminals should be pursued and prosecuted, [2] our local police will not be doing the work of ICE, [3] we desire to be a safe city for everyone. We met Lynn Hsu and others in worship last month about this proposal.  Many of us signed their petition.  Now they are on the council's agenda and now is the time for those of us available to be present to support this action.  The council meets in the Community Center auditorium.

Diversity Dinner

All members of the Lamorinda community are invited to attend a Diversity Dinner, hosted by the Orinda Progressive Action Alliance and St. Mark’s United Methodist Church. The evening will feature a vegetarian potluck dinner and a panel of speakers from 10 faith traditions and one atheist. Bring your questions for the speakers! This is a unique opportunity to come together with our neighbors and learn about belief systems we may never have encountered.

Please bring a vegetarian potluck dish to share.

Childcare is offered for children under age 6. Children 6 and older are encouraged to listen to the discussion.

A small donation of $10 per person is requested, which will be forwarded to World Hope Corps (http://www.worldhopecorps.org/). The funds will be used to help support the organization and also to fund a trip by Rev. Michele Robbins to Uganda and Malawi to work on women's empowerment and ending domestic violence among Christian and Muslim groups.
