Thanksgiving Adopt-families. This year we will be adopting three families from Benicia CAC and two seniors who live in Vallejo. We provide groceries including turkeys, for a complete holiday meal. Food tags will be available starting this Sunday. Choose as many items as you would like to purchase. Purchase the items and bring it in with the color coded tag attached. Please don’t bring perishables (milk, eggs, bread) in until the last week. All food items need to be in by the start of worship on November 18th. We will be delivering the food boxes after worship on Sunday, November 18th. Please contact me if you have any questions or will be able to help with deliveries.  Thank you for your generosity. Susan Watkins

Nature 101: Birds By Our Bay
Wednesday, November 14th, 7 p.m.
      Featured Speaker: Sue Johnson, a 25-year veteran Benicia and Solano County bird watcher and member of the Napa Solano Audubon Society.
JOIN US to learn about the birds who live in or visit Benicia’s waterways and marshlands, trees, and vegetation: their family life, nesting, migration and feeding habits, threats to their livelihood, and conservation plans to preserve their future.
We will pour over an assortment of bird guides to get familiar with these helpful educational resources. We will also enjoy impressions of local birdlife by local painters and photographers.
Binoculars: If you have a pair, bring them. We’ll discuss how to use them and what makes a good pair.
