City Council vote paves way for affordable housing project

After months of dealing with San Diego city regulations over parking, a recent vote may soon pave the way for our congregation’s affordable housing project.

The San Diego City Council unanimously approved a measure changing the city’s Land Development Code to reduce the parking requirements for churches and other non-profits who are considering building affordable housing on their properties.

This means the congregation is now well within the requirement for parking spaces, and the construction of affordable housing units would not affect this requirement.

We are, however, still a long way out from any major decision, and the congregation will have a say in how we move forward.

In the meantime, check out the report from KUSI News.

San Diego Entertainer Magazine and KPBS also reported on the change in Land Development Code by the City Council.

Baskets of joy for families in need

main image

The assembly line ran smoothly and a wonderful team of people made easy work of putting food baskets together for families in need in our community.

We delivered 40 bountiful Christmas Food Baskets to Community Christian Services Agency (CCSA) to make Christmas brighter for low income families. The baskets were put together on Sunday, December 8th in between worship and the Children’s musical. A special thanks to all who participated in the Reverse Advent Calendar and brought the non-perishable food items for the family Christmas dinner, gift cards to purchase any perishable items and donations of money to shop for the remaining needed items.

Your generosity to make 40 baskets is truly appreciated.
