Churches partner to rebuild in Glen Ellen

Parishioners from Seacoast Community Church in Encinitas helped clean up and rebuild in Glen Ellen last month.

Twelve young men from Seacoast Community Church in Encinitas, California, teamed up with members and friends of Glen Ellen Community Church (GECC) over the weekend of March 15, to help work on lots burned by last year’s fire. Housed in homes and in the church sanctuary for three nights, the men cut down trees, chipped up branches, re-built a wooden fence, re-built a wire fence, dug out destroyed plants and shrubs and replanted others, refurbished a small bridge, and rebuilt a patio overhead on two lots on Dunbar Road. Then they took the wood chipper onto O’Donnell Lane in Glen Ellen and downed trees and chipped wood there.

GECC Pastor Jim showed his gratitude during that Sunday’s worship service by saying, “This combined team of men and women accomplished a great work over these past three days – bringing blessings to several in our community in the Name of Jesus. Thank you so much for coming.”

John Boehmer, Seacoast spokesperson, greeted those in the church by saying, “We’ve had a great time here. Thank you so much for your hospitality. While we were aware of the fire, there’s nothing like working on the ground in partnership with those who have endured through it to enable us to really experience what you have been going through. Thank you for inviting us.”

Currently, plans are underway for Seacoast Community to come again and assist in other needs throughout the community of Glen Ellen.
