Join us for a brief, family-friendly time of celebration and meditation as we consider the Christmas story, sing carols, and light candles together. This will be a joint service between the congregations of Haven Berkeley Faith Community, and the Berkeley Chinese Community Church (BCCC). The service will be held at the BCCC, followed by a reception at 7 pm with hot cocoa, hot tea, cookies, and other snacks. Open to all.
Join us for an evening of Gospel, Folk, and Rock infused music for the Spirit, featuring Leah G. Martens and the Haven Band in an eclectic venue. Folks of all faith perspectives (or none at all) are fully welcome. Tickets are totally free, but a donation of at least $10 is suggested at the door. Treats from local bakeries and coffee will also be available for purchase, with 100% of all proceeds collected at the event going to the beneficiary non-profit organization: The Berkeley Food and Housing Project.
Founded in 1970, Berkeley Food & Housing Project has worked to ease and end the crisis of homelessness for men, women, and children in the Berkeley community. With programs ranging from free meal service to permanent supportive housing, BFHP provides a continuum of care to accommodate a broad spectrum of specialized needs. Learn more about BFHP here.
RSVPs through our Facebook Event Page are encouraged.
Special Note: Rain or shine this show will go on. The venue at Ohmega salvage is sheltered, so we should be dry either way. Still, if it's wet and cold, consider dressing warmly and bringing a blanket if you want to be extra cozy. We'll also have hot cider, cocoa, and tea to warm you up!
Join us for a brief, family-friendly time of celebration and meditation as we consider the Christmas story, sing carols, and light candles together. Service will be held at the Berkeley Chinese Community Church, followed by reception at 7 pm with hot cocoa, cookies, and s'mores round the fire pit at the Martens home (next door to the church). Open to all.
Come out and have a bite of "real" food before you head out and trick-or-treat for all those sugary snacks! Haven Berkeley, a faith community in the neighborhood, will grill up some all-natural hot-dogs (and vegan dogs) and have lots of games and prizes for the kids! Then we can trick-or-treat together in the neighborhood around the park or you can head out to your favorite spot.
This event is open to EVERYONE!!! If you can, let us know if you can make it and how many friends you're bringing! RSVP here.
