BASKETBALL HOOP NEEDED FOR SHELTER. The teenagers staying at the South Bay Shelter don’t have a form of outdoor entertainment. Let’s change that! If you have a wall-mount basketball hoop and backboard that’s in good condition and looking for a new home, please consider donating it to the shelter. And as always, if you would like to donate monetarily to the South Bay Women’s Shelter, you may do so by specifying on a tithe envelope.

SECRET FRIENDS has started again! Previously known as “Secret Sisters,” our Secret Friends program develops friendships and deepens relationships through the anonymous sending of small notes and gifts to a special friend/family over the course of a couple months. Although the program was once exclusively reserved for women, we are now opening it up to the wonderful men in our congregation. If you would like more info, or to select a Secret Friend of your own, please contact Colleen Larsen at (619) 850-3299.

OUR MIDWEEK FELLOWSHIP is currently looking closely at “The Writings of Israel.” The Hebrew Bible is divided into three parts—the Law (the Torah), the Prophets, and the Writings. These writings have often been referred to as the “wisdom literature” of the Bible. What can we learn from them? This week we examine the book of Lamentations. You’re invited to join us on Tuesday at 6 pm in the Board Room.

A FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN is underway here at Tierrasanta to raise money for a new audio/visual system for our sanctuary. An anonymous donor has pledged to match up to $30,000 of the funds raised for this campaign! Thus far, we have received $22,495 in donations. The total cost of improvements will be $60,000. We are so close to reaching our goal so please consider this campaign in your contributions!

SUMMER SIGN UPS for volunteer opportunities are available on the bulletin board in the foyer. If you would like to volunteer just one time, please don’t hesitate to write your name down. No prior experience or rotating volunteer commitment is necessary.
