2019 Confirmands Cooked and Served in April

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.

The confirmation class cooked and served dinner for the women at Rachel’s House on April 28. Elizabeth cooked an amazing “risso-tata” main dish, and the kids (with their mentors) made orzo and pesto with fresh and roasted vegetables, dinner salad, bread and butter, fruit salad, fresh baked chocolate chip cookies, and ice cream sundaes with whipped cream, nuts, chocolate and caramel syrups, and of course, a cherry on the top.

The May meal will be the Sunday over Memorial Day weekend. If you will be in town, please consider joining us. Sign up is in Lander Hall in May. Questions? 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:
