■ Congregational Church of La Jolla will kick off its Centennial Anniversary with a summer ice cream social, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 30 on the courtyard patio at 1216 Cave St. All are invited to join Pastor Sam Greening and his congregants as they celebrate the August 1915 acquisition of the property where the church sanctuary stands today. There will be a sundae bar with ice cream and toppings so guests can build their own sweet creations. Behind the Barn barbershop quartet will provide the musical backdrop. Dating back to 1889, the church is La Jolla’s oldest faith community. Its covenant is rooted in the worship tradition brought to America by the Pilgrims in the early 1600s. lajollaucc.org
