As part of our commitment to being faithful stewards of Creation, this summer, we went solar at Skyline Community Church! The benefits of solar energy for our church and preschool are multiple: saving money on electric bills means more money for outreach and meeting needs in our community; solar energy (especially with battery backup) puts us one step closer to being a “resiliency hub” in California’s extreme heat periods and during power shut-offs; and renewable energy demonstrates our commitment to caring for all of Creation and encourages others to go solar. Here’s a short, energizing, and inspiring video prepared by our Green Team, who we thank for their work in bringing this to fruition, along with the contributions of our congregation. https://www.facebook.com/SkylineCommunityChurch/videos/134638532123254

We were blessed to have, as our guest preacher, Nichola Torbett, who has dedicated her life to putting her faith into action. Her many accomplishments include serving as Founding Director at Seminary of the Street, former Director of National Programs at Tikkun, and advocating for criminal justice reform, highlighted by “Sojourners” and NPR.
Sunday, August 15 at 6:30pm (updated date and time), the second concert of vocalist Gabrielle Lochard, our beloved Music Director, and pianist Jonathan Liu takes place outdoors at Skyline Community Church. This dynamic duo performs art songs, arias and jazz standards about joy, sorrow and resilience – music by Handel, Rachmaninov, Duke Ellington and Abbey Lincoln. Suggested donation of $15 at the door or Venmo @jonathan-liu-31, though nobody will be turned away for lack of funds. While the vocalist will not be masked, the audience, must be masked and socially distanced.
