Make a Meal Full of Love for Rachel’s House

Rachel’s Women’s Center provides services for San Diego’s Homeless Women.  KCC helps by cooking and serving dinner to about 40 women once a month.

We had a lively group help serve at Rachel’s House in February. We served a delicious and comforting meal of grits (with choice of ham or cheese), greens, bean salad, dinner salad, garlic bread, fruit, iced tea, lemonade, red velvet cheesecake brownies, and lots of girl scout cookies. The women of Rachel’s House really enjoyed the meal–many came back for second or third helpings. Thanks to everyone who made it all happen!

The March meal with be on March 31, and we will serve a Cajun pasta meal. We need folks to help serve, and to prepare a vegetarian pasta dish, side dishes, dinner rolls, dessert, etc. See sign-up in Lander Hall or call or text Sara Anderson at  857-222-0017, or email

The mission of Rachel’s House is “To address the root causes of homelessness for women by creating communities that value individual needs and differences, with opportunities to effect changes in their lives.”   We can help, just a little bit, by providing a warm meal for these ladies who are trying so hard to change their lives. Read Karen Boyd’s “Rachel Experience” for more insight.

We Throw Open Our Doors. Our Faith Propels Us to the Streets!

Since 1929, our church has served as a beacon and a hub for our community. Whether we throw our doors open for our Halloween carnival or our quarterly senior luncheons, for recovery groups, our well regarded preschool, or the neighborhood garden club, we cherish our role as friendly hosts.

Yet our faith also propels us to the streets—to paint fences in the City Heights Facelift, to offer care and comfort to those fleeing domestic abuse, to march in the Gay Pride Parade and support homeless clients at Uptown Faith Community Service Center. Our full list of our community partners includes:
