Blessing of the Backpacks

We will have a Blessing of the Backpacks in worship on Sunday, August 20th. We get to support and bless students and educators as they begin another school year. We will also collect donated items for children in Culver City experiencing homelessness. See the list below for items you can start collecting now.

Stay after worship for another ice cream social. We loved the first one so much, we’re going to do it again after worship on August 20th. Come hungry!


We are collecting items for students in Culver City who are experiencing homelessness. Please take a look at the list at the bottom of the email to see what you can bring on Sunday, August 20th to help with this mission.
