What if? Come join us for festive worship and learn the importance of every little detail in the Christmas narrative!
Winter Wonderland Toy Drive
The Winter Wonderland Toy Drive supports a local outreach that served over 400 families last year with a hot lunch and provided over 1,000 toys to families in the inner city of Oakland. Christian Cathedral Church also “adopted” 15 local families and donated 200 toys to the local Fruitvale Head Start program.
Mr. Montogmery is collecting toys and financial contributions to support this ministry again this year. All toys can be dropped off in H-9 or H-18 anytime before Friday, December 9. If you would like to volunteer at this event, please see Mr. Montgomery.
Football Meeting | December 8
On December 8 at 7:00pm there will be a meeting for all parents and students who are interested in playing JV football in the Fall of 2017. Please come out and hear about the direction of the program!
In an effort to increase our emergency supplies, high school students have been asked to help stock the classrooms with water and granola bars. Seniors and sophomores have been asked to bring in one case of 8oz water bottles. Juniors and Freshmen have been asked to bring in a box of bars (granola, cereal, protein, etc.) Our Middle School has already helped stock the emergency shed and Elementary School students have brought in their own emergency supply bags.
Visit with Assemblywoman Baker
Our Seniors were able to visit with Assemblywoman Baker in their Government and Economics courses. She discussed why she chose to run for this position, the committees she has been a part of, the inner workings of state government, and answered students’ questions. It was an insightful and valuable experience for our students!
