Second Harvest This Wednesday!

Hey everyone!

This Wednesday, February 15th, we’re going to second harvest!! Meet up at Bethel around 5:15, MAKE SURE you wear LONG SLEEVES, LONG PANTS and CLOSED-TOE shoes!!!!! We’ll get food after so bring $15, and we should be back at Bethel around 9. This is a good way to give back to our community, and to knock out any community service hours you might have to do! Hope to see you there.

There will be no Common Ground meeting on Monday due to the holiday.

See you all soon 🙂



February 13th Common Ground Announcements

Hi Friends,

We’ll, Common Ground kicked off last Monday and we are excited about this season 🙂  Each week, I will post a pdf of the announcements that I hand out to CG’ers.  This is an important sheet with the latest up to date info on all things Sr High Youth related.  I am also attaching a pdf of the 2017 CG Schedule for you.  If you got one last week, there is already one date change :-/  The first time CG sings in church is Sunday, March 19th (not the 12th).  The new schedule already has that update.

Please feel free to call or email with comments and questions.  My cell is 408-309-9975 and my email is 🙂

Peace, Tom

Hey everyone!!!

TONIGHT AT 7:15 PM is this year’s first Common Ground practice!!!!! Even if you can’t sing, dance or play an instrument you should still come and it’ll be awesome and fun!😊😊

There will be no event this Wednesday, since I know we’ll all still be recovering from how awesome common ground was.

Also, sign ups for the winter ski trip are happening, so let Tom know if you’re interested. More info to come.

See everyone tonight!!

I have one cool addition:  Our Bethel School Principal, Dawn and her boys will be joining us for dinner at El Paseo 🙂  Dawn will also be with us for our discussion and share what it is like to transplant from Chicago and to be a bi-racial leader in our community.  She is a wonderful person with a great heart and story.  Make sure to join us this Wednesday.
