Paul’s beautiful description of the evening, “THANK YOU to Ellie Mowry-silverman, Joe Silverman, Pam Will, Michael Graham, Nancy Osborn, Julie Carlson, Jim Osborn, the Rev. Keenan Kelsey, and our spectacular musicians – Ralph Hooper, Jennifer Seaman, Jill Fugaro, Steve Fugaro and all who helped and attended our MAUNDY THURSDAY LAST SUPPER SERVICE. We sat in the middle of the sanctuary – in the center aisle, where we have never sat before… We spoke of dark nights and waiting for dawn… We spoke of fear and comfort… We washed feel and shared blessings… We sang and listened to a beautiful song that evoked the Quiet Upper Room… We laughed and cried… We broke bread and shared the cup, remembering a night so long ago when Jesus longed for a different outcome, but drew comfort in the company of his ragamuffin friends… Walt Whitman once wrote, ‘We were together. I forget the rest.’ We remember the rest, and we especially remember that we were together, as Christ and his friends were together…”
Palm Sunday, March 25 . A lovely service PLUS a wonderful ceremony of
installation, ordination, and blessing of our new roster of Deacons and Elders

The ministry of a deacon is one of compassion, witness, and service, sharing the redeeming love of Christ for the poor, the hungry, the sick, the lost, the friendless, the oppressed, those burdened by unjust policies or structures, or anyone in distress. At SPC the deacons have also taken on the role of nurturing the community with opportunities for fellowship, like the Summer of Love Sing-In. They are a key expression of the community’s loving kindness, care and concern.
The ministry of an elder. Elders serve on the Session, the elected church board, and its members have the responsibility to set goals and strategy for the church, create the church’s annual budget and oversee church finances, oversee staff and their compensation, maintain our property and facilities, approve and/or set church policies, and many, many other tasks that arise during the church year.

Exciting things are always happening at church! Please drop by our website and Facebook page often as the good news is updated at least weekly. facebook.com/SausalitoPresbyterianChurch
When I first came, I was struck by the deep caring evident in the SPC community, the warm and friendly atmosphere, and the congregation’s openness to, and interest in, religious traditions other than their own. I invite you to look around and get a feel for our church. We welcome any comments or questions that might be on your mind. If you’re not currently a member of our church, or if you aren’t a “church person,” we invite you to drop in to a Sunday service or to other musical or spiritual events. You might be surprised. And of course feel free to reach out and call or e-mail me or other church staff. Contact
We hope you and your family will have a warm and spirit-filled experience with us as we worship together, share fellowship at our services and events, and serve each other and the community through our ministries.
Many blessings to you,
Pastor Paul Mowry
