Sisters and Brothers in Christ: We look forward to having you in worship this weekend. We gather in person on Saturday at 5:30pm for informal worship. At 8:30am on Sunday the worship style is more traditional, and this is the service that is live streamed on YouTube. Church at 5:00 is offered on Sunday evenings as a casual option featuring our band, Revived. We ask that you keep Dorcas Arevalo in your prayers. Due to a recent injury, she is not in the office for the next few days. Please contact other staff members via email or phone if you have immediate needs.

Oct. 16 - Mexico House build in Mexico (if Covid safe) Hi Everyone, We are tentatively planning House Build #14 in Mexico for Saturday, October, 16th. We will only go into Mexico for the build if things are safe from a Covid perspective. I'm thinking equal or better than the current case numbers. While I've not done a lot of research yet, my understanding is that case and vaccination rates for Baja are similar to SD County. I would like to plan everything out and make a go/no-go decision about a week out. If you would like to participate in this build, please let me know so I can add you to the sign-up list. We also need to raise about $4,000 for this build, so please consider contributing if you are able and interested. Donate here. Thanks - Jake jakej_3@yahoo.com



U.S. Wildfires

The 2021 wildfire season is devastating the western United States. A prolonged drought and extreme heat waves are causing wildfires to spread rapidly, which makes them difficult to contain. Your gift will support wildfire survivors. When sending a check to ILC, or making an online donation, please indicate "U.S. Wildfires". Donations will be used in full (100%) to assist those affected by wildfires until the response is complete.



Hygiene Supplies Needed! Interfaith is low on hygiene supplies, shampoo, deodorant, bar soap. There is also a need for new or gently used blankets. Thank you for your consistent generosity!


Food Drop off for Interfaith Community Services Every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday between 9:00 and 11:00 in the morning, volunteers are in the parking lot to move groceries and take all the donations to ICS.



We would like to invite everyone to please see the church's website for updated Covid precautions.

We encourage everyone to attend if you can. Thank you and see you in Church!
