The Holy Spirit: Ultimate Muse

This Sunday is Pentecost! Not only is it sometimes celebrated as the birthday of the Christian church, but its also a time to remember the early signs of inspiration in receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit!

2020 Interfaith National Day of Prayer

PB UMC & St. Mark’s UMC have collaborated with the Islamic Center of San Diego and B’Nai Tikvah Temple to bring an Interfaith National Day of Prayer Service to all people.  These prayers reflect a portion of the diversity of our Nation as we share sacred words, offer light, and share this life with one another.
