Manteca area business and professional men and women began arriving at the Crossroads Grace Community Church half an hour before the posted Manteca Chamber of Commerce weekly coffee at the Moffat Boulevard church located near Woodward Avenue.

There were about 35 who attended the morning get-together for coffee and treats and the exchange of ideas in making the community better for their customers and clientele.

Pastor of Outreach Jim Todd used the church staircase to address the small crowd and let them know the church family’s willingness to work with the people in town and address their problems and concerns through their weekly church sessions. 

A current presentation entitled “Bad Girls of the Bible” uses local talent in delivering their message to their brethren to let them know there is always a way to correct a problem when they agree to work through concerns with church pastors and lay people for a better conclusion to their strife. 

Tony Dhaliwal of Punjabi Association of Manteca presented a $500 check to Hope Family Shelter during the course of the morning coffee to assist them in providing living quarters for the needy in the community. For those new to the business community, information on the next chamber coffee and its location next Wednesday can be found on the chambers web site.
