An Evening for Worship and Prayer - Monday, Aug. 1, 7PM

Come and soak it in.  A relaxed sweet time of worship.  All ages are welcome to worship with us as there will not be child care.

Women’s Day At Ritter House In San Rafael: Saturday, August 6!

We will be partnering with Ritter House to host a special day for homeless women of Marin, Saturday, August 6, 10am-2pm in downtown San Rafael. Women can come and enjoy pampering, haircuts, healthy food, yoga and prayer in a safe, nurturing and loving environment. 

We are looking for volunteers to help with many aspects of this day — including food prep and serving, filling and handing out the pampering purses we collected and filled, plus prayer teams. Volunteers are needed for prep on Friday, August 5, as well as on Saturday August 6. 

We’re also seeking donations of salads and baked goods as well as women’s accessories. See Gina Vucci at the table in the lobby Sunday July 31 or email her through our outreach link. 

Couples Retreat At Sea Ranch - Nov 4-6, 2016

Registration begins Sunday, August 7 at the table in the lobby. Registration is limited and often fills up immediately.  For more information or to get a jump on filling out the reg form, you can download it here.  In the event that we receive more registrations than spots, all registrations received on Aug. 7 will be entered into a lottery.  Not able to be at church on Aug. 7?  We will have a digital registration form available for that day only.

Coaches At Hamilton Elementary

Is sports your thing?  Are you interested in coaching a group of kids at Hamilton?  Are you free one day a week from 3:00-5:00pm?  Hamilton needs you!  We are looking for a few volunteers to coach kids in sports skills.  Please email Michele Huff  or call her at 415-305-1125 if you are interested.

End of Fiscal Year Financial Update

Words cannot express how significant is that you so generously have a plan to give to the church you love.  We ended our fiscal year on 6/30/16 ahead of budget.  As reported at the annual business meeting in June, we were able to fund our full ministry plan for the year and pay off the remaining $130K balance of our building fund mortgage. THANKS FOR BEING A PARTNER IN WHAT GOD HAS FOR US IN AND THROUGH MARIN COVENANT! Keep going! Our 2016/17 ministry spending plan approved by the congregation on June 5 is exciting and stretching!

(If you would like to set up the capability to give electronically and/or set up automatic giving, it's easy.  Here is the link.)

Summer In The Scriptures- Colossians Reading Plan

An opportunity for our entire church to spend these summer months deeply rooted in the Word of God. This is an 8 week in-depth reading and study of the book of Colossians. Each day we will have short readings upon which to study and meditate, culminating in the Sunday sermon on that chunk of text. Please follow along with us on our reading plan by opening the PDF here. And we will hope to see you on Sunday!
