LIFT Power Faith & Community Forum

Saturday, September 10th, 2016

11:00am – 2:00pm

Fresno Convention Center, 848 M St, Fresno, CA 93721 

Click here to register today! 

Join over 1,500 Central Valley families, elected officials, candidates, faith leaders, and community partners as together we proclaim a NEW vision for life in the Valley rooted inracial, economic, and environmental dignity for all people during this critically important election year. 

Together we will launch Faith in the Valley, a new faith-rooted grassroots community organization in California’s Central Valley of 120 congregations representing over 100,000 families from Kern, Fresno, Merced, Stanislaus, and San Joaquin Counties.

We believe a different, better future is possible for the Central Valley if we work together. A future in which everyone is included, treated as sacred, has a chance to thrive and live a decent life. A future in which no one is seen as “less than” or lives in fear because of the color of their skin, their legal status, or the amount of money they earn. A future where everyone has access to good jobs, clean air and water, and alternatives to incarceration

Today, too many people cannot find work that pays enough to support their families. Too many young people feel they have to leave the Valley to make a life. The reason is clear – we’ve allowed our Valley economy to be dominated by extraction rather than investment, extraction from our people through poverty-wage jobs, extraction from our land and our air through uncontrolled water and air pollution, extraction from our communities through mass incarceration.

We’re coming together to create a different, a better future and take control of the Central Valley for its families and communities.  Bus transportation from Stockton to Fresno and return is provided.

 This can only happen if we unite together across region, race and religion.

Join us on September 10th!

_______________________Sorting through the words!

We are in the midst of a season of a multitude of words, phrases and speeches! Words are flying past us and into our ears from every direction! These many verbal presentations are coming to us in a variety of ways…. From the radio waves, the television, the mouths of friends, and family and especially from the people who want to be elected to serve as leaders in our governmental systems.

Every August we have an almost endless celebration of Birthdays Thanks to Sylvia we have some documentation in the way of cake and icing. It didn’t take long for the documentation to disappear but it so delicious.

It was a pleasure for Jeff Ryan and Bill Schoenleber to meet with Adam Cheshire at The Stockton Shelter for the Homeless and learn more about all the ways in which they are helping Stockton’s Homeless Community. They are working tirelessly to make the lives of so many a little easier.

It was also our pleasure to give the shelter the proceeds from the Pub Night Raffle. Thanks so much to all who contributed to making the event happen as well as those who attended the event. Together it was a great success.

We’re looking forward to another great Pub Night next February. We will be announcing the date shortly, so start making plans to attend and don’t forget to bring a friend. It’s always more fun when we share it with people we know.Until then make plans to attend our South Pacific Festival on Sept. 12th 2015. For ticket info call the church at 209.473.2313. See you there

Stories of the Bag…from St. Anne’s, Stockton 

I took one of the yellow bags that were designed to hand out to the needy people on the streets of Stockton. I had it for a couple of weeks, and while I saw some needy people, it was either unsafe to stop, or to be honest, it may have been an inconvenience to me.
