December Council Update

Marjorie Wray, RScP, Council Chair

Dear Fellow Congregants
As we continue to live with COVID19, life has been very different for me. I cannot say that Ed and I were grateful that we chose not to go up to Northern California to visit relatives over Thanksgiving, as we usually do. I can however say that I am grateful to say that we chose to stay home and not add to the spreading of this very contagious virus. I am also very grateful for how our Ministers quickly made use of Zoom and Facebook Live to provide community, albeit not in person.

I would like to give a big shout-out to the pledge drive committee – Cindy Stevens, Gina Overholt, and myself with the support of Rev Nicole and Rev Michael. We managed to put together a successful Pledge Drive under difficult circumstances. We received pledges of a little over $80,000 and for that, I would like to thank all the congregants who pledged their support to our “Jewel by the Sea.” In fact, I would like to give my heartfelt thanks to all of you who continue to financially support our Center. We could not do it without you.

Our Council continues to work diligently to deal with the loss of rental income and reduced weekly donations, as we move through this difficult time. I am so proud of how we have hung together through Zoom Services, Informal Mingle, Soul Sisters, Men’s Group, Book Club and so much more. We have an amazing center and it is my privilege to be a part of it.

Much Love,

Marjorie Wray
Chair of the Leadership Council
