Big BBQ A-Comin’! July 30

This year’s BBQ will be focused on thanking our wonderful Reverend, Pastor Sunae, and welcoming the start of a new year at Lake Merritt and Lake Park UMC’s!

The Barbecue will be held after church on Sunday, July 30.  Our special friends, Laurel and Randy, are cooking up hot dogs, hamburgers, sausages, and veggie burgers; as well as bringing buns, condiments, and special toppings.  Can we ever outdo them?  Let’s try!


You may bring a potluck dish to share, as follows:

Last Name beginning with A – H,   Side Dish
Last Name beginning with I – R,    Salad
Last Name beginning with S – Z,   Dessert

*(Beans will be provided)

Any questions, talk with Judi Fabrizio @ 510 530-7094
