“Ready for a Change?”

change ahead sign

Lent can be a time of change in our journey, seeking new life.

This concept of change and the change-making actions of Jesus will guide our spiritual journey this season.  We will wrestle with our fear of change, the inevitability of change, the difficulty in changing and the life-giving new lease on life and call to service that change can bring.

Skyline & UCC Current Missions

WE CAN PUT AN END TO HUNGER HERE IN ALAMEDA COUNTY

Suzan Bateson, Executive Director ACCFB and Rev. Laurie Manning

For the second year in a row, this fall, Skyline has made a major donation and presented a matching challenge to major corporate sponsors to support the fundraising efforts of Alameda County Community Food Bank. Given the recent reports on poverty, particularly among children and the elderly in Alameda County, such donations are critical.

In total, Skyline has contributed $30,000 over the past two years to ACCFB, our matching challenge has been met, and with their purchasing power, our gift has turned into over $500K worth of fresh healthy food for families here in Alameda County. Our efforts were made possible, through the grace of God, working through us, to provide for so many, just like the multiplication of the loaves and fishes, making the world, a bit more like the Kingdom of Heaven.

For our generosity, we have received national recognition from our denomination as well as recognition from ACCFB!


 

WE CAN SUPPORT THE EDUCATION OF CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD!

For the fifth year in a row, this month, we will hold our annual Sierra Leone bike fundraiser, to fund five teachers in the school that we built in Makrommay, Sierra Leone, where 400 children from four villages come and learn. One of our beloved members, Sentho, was born in this village, and after the war, the school and much of the village was destroyed.

Together, we are re-building the village and the lives of these children. (Click here to see a Thank You from the Children video.)
