Neighborhood Congregational Church provides pastoral care, spiritual guidance, and tangible support to members, visitors, friends, homeless visitors, transient and vacationing neighbors all year long. Many who receive our services have no means of financial support, but many of us do. Your gift helps us help others, allowing us to continue with all our minesterial work, near and far: supporting our members, our local charities, and our friends in need; here in Laguna, as well as Los Angeles, and well beyond our borders. Your gift, no matter how large or small, will make a significant impact in the lives of others. We now have a ‘donate’ button at the bottom left hand side of the main page. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of so many others! Continue reading
May Food Drive from Sally Barron for Laguna Resource Center
May means beautiful spring days, blooming flowers, and the semi-annual food drive for the Resource Center. Over the past few years the need for food assistance has increased dramatically, with summer months growing increasingly lean. Let’s stock the food pantry now to prepare for summer! The Food Pantry at the Resource Center is currently serving 1,000 people a month and struggles to keep up with the need. If you have ever been out to the little Pantry in the Canyon between 7 and 10 in the morning, you can see the people lined up waiting to fill their bags, and the smiles on their faces as they leave with food for the week. All non-perishable food items are needed, especially beans and rice, canned vegetables, peanut butter and jelly, mac and cheese, cereals and canned meats, as well as personal care items, laundry and dish washing soap, kitchen cleaners and toilet paper. Bring your donations to church on Sunday during November and the children will collect them. Or write a check. (Make checks payable to NCC, memo line marked “Resource Center” or “Food Bank.”)
