Make a difference in our community and for our planet
|Plant seedlings in a food desert community
On Easter Sunday, we will dedicate living plant seedlings provided by Netiya. Then, the next day, Monday April 2nd we will plant them in the Just Food garden of Emmanuel Turner AME Church in South LA – a congregation in a food desert community. We meet there at 10:30 am. Join us!
Habitat for Humanity
We are proud to partner with Habitat for Humanity and Presbytery of the Pacific to build new affordable homes across the street from our church building. Donations are being gathered now with building under way in the next few months. Be sure to indicate your donation is going towards the Globe Ave Culver City build. And thank you!

Matthew 25 is a national movement inspired by Jesus’ words, “I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.” Particularly in this time, those who need protection are immigrants and refugees, those subjected to mass incarceration, and religious minorities who are the targets of hate.
