Wednesday Night Lent Supper and Series
This year’s Wednesday night Supper and Lenten Series begins at 6:30pm with a simple supper of soup and salad. The list of speakers is still being finalized, but we will reflect on the sin of racism in our community and world and learn more about other world religions, especially Judaism and Islam. How do we move forward in this complicated world? The program will begin at 7:15pm on February 17, March 2 & 9. We will enjoy Jazz Vespers at 7:30pm after the soup supper on February 24 and March 16.
God’s Work, Our Hands
We are capable of great things. We are the change in our community and in the world. Let us come together to make our neighbors’ lives better through giving. CARES has an immediate need for the following items: canned fruit, rice, tuna, peanut butter, jelly, toilet paper. Paul’s Place has an immediate need for winter coats, all sizes. We can do this.
Habitat for Humanity
We are excited about partnering again this year with a coalition of nearby Episcopal churches to work on the McCabe Avenue project of Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake. Four homeowners have moved into new homes on McCabe Avenue and two more are about to go to settlement. The late winter/early spring work cycle will begin February 13 and run through May 28. Our coalition will work on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month. Friday dates may also be added. The Episcopal coalition is made up of the Church of the Nativity, the Church of the Redeemer, the Church of the Good Shepherd, St. Thomas Church (Garrison Forest), and Garrison Forest School. More details will be available soon. Please email us if you would like to work on the site or provide lunches for our volunteers.
Calling all Quilters
Christian Action, also known as “the Quilt Group”, meets once a month to make quilts and to sort used clothes which are collected by Lutheran social services and distributed locally. We will be meeting on the second Monday of the month March 14th). We will continue to meet on the second Monday of each month from 10 to 1:30 in Hart Hall. Bring some lunch and a beverage and we will provide dessert. No experience is necessary. If you can tie a shoe, we have something for you to do. We hope to see you there. Contact Bonnie or Penny Patschke with questions.
