“Using Our Voices: Presbyterians in the Public Square

What does the Bible tell us about hunger and hardship and the role of God’s people in addressing it? What are the forces today that fuel hunger here in Southern California as well as around the world, and how can we respond effectively? Join us Sunday, June 6, at 1 pm for Adult Education Hour to explore these questions with David Gist of Bread for the World (www.bread.org). Let’s take steps together to bring an end to hunger.  To join the class, please send an e-mail to: pastorannaltadena@gmail.com and a link will be sent to you.

Minute for Missions – La Casa de San Gabriel

Founded by the Rev. César and Angelita Lizárraga in 1946, La Casa celebrates 70 years of service in San Gabriel, Calif.. This historic town, one of the oldest in the state, grew up around the Spanish Franciscan mission. Today descendents of Gabrieleno/Tongva Native Americans; immigrants from Mexico, Central America, Taiwan, China, the Philippines and Viet Nam; African- and Euro-Americans live here—and come to La Casa.

The mission statement sums it up: “La Casa enhances the well-being of the families it serves by providing educational and social services that promote self-sufficiency and motivation for lifelong learning.” Classes in parenting (U.S. style), English as a second language, financial literacy and nutrition help newcomers adapt to the cultural norms. A food pantry provides emergency supplies to La Casa’s families and to homeless people who stop by. New clothing is available to children in special need, thanks to a partnership with a volunteer from nearby San Marino.

Parents pay a modest amount based on their income. The sliding-scale tuition provides about one-third of the total cost of La Casa’s program. All other funds must be raised with donations from individuals, churches, service clubs, businesses, foundations and the Presbytery of San Gabriel, which owns the property and provides a monthly grant.

To support this work, please give to the Rev. César Lizárraga and Angelita Lizárraga Fund 323-692-3500 A1478, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Foundation.
