  • The Elderberries meeting that was to take place on Sunday, April 7th has been moved up to Sunday, March 31st in the Conference Room at 11:30 a.m. Please make adjustments to your calendars. An Elderberry Spring Luncheon will be held on Tuesday, April 30th at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Old Town. Please save the date. Details and sign-ups coming soon!


  • Help provide lunch for the Voices of Our City Choir. We will be delivering and serving lunch to San Diego’s homeless choir (Andy Mathews is their volunteer director) on Friday, March 29th. Please see Nancy Shimamoto or Susan Namba if you are able to help out.


  • We will be assisting the Nestor United Methodist Church for the 27th year, as they open their church for a 2-week rotation in the Interfaith Shelter Network. The Network is a nationwide, ecumenical outreach project that provides food, shelter, and job-hunting skills to homeless people in the county. Our church will provide overnight hosts on Thursday, March 28th, Tuesday, April 2nd, and Friday, April 5th. If you would be able to help with a meal for any of those nights, please sign up on the list in Fellowship Hall. See Susan Namba for more details.


  • BOM will purchase donuts, bagels, and fruit from Hospitality Fund in lieu of lunch next Sunday, March 24th. This light snack will be provided in lieu of regular lunches in months where a 5th Sunday occurs. This will help to extend the Hospitality rotation frequency of regularly scheduled lunches, since it will not require a Hospitality group’s services.


  • Between now and Easter, the Elderberries are collecting shirts, shorts and underwear of any size. They can be gently used or new, and men's clothing is especially appreciated. Please place your items in the box marked “Uptown” in the narthex. Thank you!


  • POVUCC and UCUC 4th-6th graders will join together to make toys for the animals at San Diego Humane Society. We will meet in the POVUCC Fellowship Hall, Sunday March 10th from 1 pm - 2pm.
