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.

Our September meal (on the left) was another success! We served a delicious meal of tamale pie, cheese enchiladas, guacamole, salad, fruit, cupcakes, iced tea, and bagels for breakfast the next day. HUGE thanks to Kay-Marie, Sage, Leslie, Tom, Ed, Peggy, Bonnie, Nick, Crystal, Dawn, Elizabeth, Jodi, Harriet, Beth, Darryl, the Trischmans, Azar, Kathy, and Cori. We couldn’t have done it without you. Our November meal will be on Sunday, November 25.  Our confirmands and their mentors will be preparing and serving the meal in November.  We’ll be back to normal sign-ups for our December 30 meal. 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:

We Teach Each Other To Live More Thoughtfully. We Extend Love and Mercy to Those Around the World.

We bring thirsty minds and open hearts to our life together at KCC. Recently we’ve challenged ourselves to learn more about the deterioration of our planet’s soil, food shortages here and abroad, end of life care as well as the peace of labyrinth walks. We extend the reach of our love and support to those around the world with our global missions:
