Congregation and Canines

Since November 1, 2016, a small group has been meeting on Sundays at 4:30 p.m. in Johnson Hall for worship.  It is an unusual group, in that it is primarily made up of people who love their dogs and who wish to bring them with them to worship.

A bit of history:  This particular worship service began at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Westchester in 2009.  Two year ago, that church decided to discontinue this service.  Since then, they have been searching for a new church home, while worshiping in Leslie and Bill Evan’s home.  After much discussion, our church finally agreed to hold this service on a trial basis, and Pastor Lee began to lead the service on a regular basis, using basically the same material as in the morning worship, but in an intimate, casual setting.  Worshippers sit in a circle around a small table that serves as an altar.  The dogs either lie on mats or sit on laps, always on a leash, and are amazingly quiet.  In fact, the most exciting moment of the service for them comes when a basket of dog biscuits is passed along with the basket for offerings.

Since then, several members of our congregation have come to “check it out” and have found the service to be very enjoyable and a viable alternative to our morning service, whether people have dogs or not.

On March 22, the Church Council agreed and voted to make the “Congregation and Canines” worship service an official ministry of our church!  

Cardboard Box City, May 5

This annual fundraiser for Family Promise of the South Bay is a fun evening. Participants—which could be a family or a group of friends as well as a youth group—will gather at St. James Elementary School in Torrance to construct and sleep in cardboard structures.  Eric Iki will be staying overnight with our youth, but he needs some folks to help transport our youth to the site and stay with them until he arrives about 10:30. (He’s flying into LAX that evening.)  

Learn more about Cardboard Box City at http://www.familypromiseosb.org/cardboard-box-city-2018 

Contact Eric to volunteer to chaperone the youth that evening at iki_eric@yahoo.com 

Support our youth with a financial gift, either through the church or by going to Eric’s fundraising page at https://grouprev.com/cbc2018-eric-iki 

Thanks!
