Did You Know…?

…that either on Fri., May 17 or Mon., May 20, the City of Berkeley will be shifting traffic to the east side of Dana St. to begin work on a new bike lane, which will be located on the west side of Dana (extending from Bancroft to Dwight)? This means the church will lose the loading zone (in front of the ramp up to Loper Chapel) and almost all of the current parking spaces as new raised concrete islands will be constructed to buffer the bike lane. In the final configuration, there will only be a handful of parking spaces remaining on the east side of Dana.

…that Arin Dahl, one of our ushers and deacons, is studying to be an ordained Animal Chaplain? She is currently working on her final project and would appreciate the chance to offer her developing skills to her church family. Services offered include grief support around the loss of companion animals, celebrations/memorials of life, animal blessings, adoption celebrations, and naming ceremonies. Services are offered in people’s homes (and perhaps virtually) and are free of charge, as she is not yet ordained. Please contact her at [email protected] if you have questions or to set up a meeting.
