Thanksgiving Food Collection

TAPIN Thanksgiving Food Collection

Once again we are joining with other churches in town to help provide the food that is given away to those in need in the TAPIN Thanksgiving Food bags. Our congregation is asked to provide Instant Mashed Potatoes, Brownie Mix, and Stuffing Mix. (Please note that TAPIN is not allowed to split up large boxes of these items purchased from BJ’s etc – they can only give out the regular sized boxes.) TAPIN helps about 450 families in the East Bay area each Thanksgiving so lots is needed! Food donations may be placed in the bins […]

In their second playoff game, BCCUCC defeated St. Lukes in a well played, hard fought 8 – 7 game.  That puts BCCUCC in the championship game!!   A big 6 run fourth inning got BCCUCC a lead that they never gave up.
