The weather this week here in Santa Barbara is building the expectation for lots of fun and memorable Independence Day celebrations. One of the most special will take place at the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission where we’ll hold our 5th Annual 4th of July Cookout and Carnival. As the holidays can be particularly challenging for those struggling with homelessness and addiction, we provide a place of warmth and welcome. We are looking forward to providing food, games, music, prizes and surprises from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. Our prayer is that the hundreds who join us will feel God’s love, care and concern. Happy 4th!
