“The Gift of Imperfection”

UMW Sunday & Randa Krakow

Sunday, February 9, 2020 at 9:00am and 10:30am


Hello Friends,

This Sunday is United Methodist Women Sunday. We are thrilled to recognize, celebrate and learn from the UMW who lead ministry all over our community, nation and world. We are also honored to welcome our very own UMW guest speaker, Randa Krakow.

Randa was raised in the Methodist Church and was active in MYF. She received a scholarship to Cal Western on Point Loma (a Methodist University). Randa’s father was an accountant and her mother worked at Walt Disney Studio for 35 years. She has a brother and two sisters. They all enjoyed going to Disneyland for free until her mother died in 2016. Randa’s mother was active in UMW and inspired her also to be active at the local, district, and conference levels of UMW.

Randa taught elementary school in Newhall and Del Mar for 35 years. She loves to play the guitar and the ukulele. She also loves to sail, swim, and boogie board.

When Randa moved to this area, she tried different local churches, but when she found San Dieguito, it just felt like home. She’s been an active member here for 25 years!

When asked what keeps her coming back to SDUMC, Randa says, “San Dieguito is my church family. I appreciate the friendships I have made, especially in UMW. I appreciate the many opportunities to serve others, such as the people without homes at Fill-a-Belly each Tuesday night at Cottonwood Creek Park. I have enjoyed being one of our church’s delegates to Annual Conference in Redlands for many years. It has truly been an honor to serve.”

Randa’s hopes that the church will truly be a united and inclusive United Methodist Church.

One of Randa’s favorite spots is Pipe’s Cafe in Cardiff, where you can find a bunch of  “the gals” every morning having coffee and solving the problems of the world. There’s always room for more at their table. They’d love for you to join them!

We hope to see you at 8am, 9am or 10:30am as we hear more about Randa’s story and as we celebrate the UMW!

    Randa’s sermon was warm and wonderful. She is a friend of many years and directed me the the website. I am inspired by Randa’s example to join UMW., but I am Jewish 😊

    Thank you for making these sermons accessible on line. They are a tonic for troubled times.
