On Sunday July 19, we had our thired amazing joint worship service with our friends at the Lutheran Church of the Holy Comforter. This time we did a ‘Mass on the Grass’ here at Nativity. The similarities between our two congregations are obvious. Their dedication to hospitality and diversity of all types is so similar to ours at Nativity that you might think we were simply separated at birth.
And so we are continuing this serious discussion about ‘moving in together.’ The idea all along has not been to have separate worship services, but to combine the best elements of our liturgies and praise God together. I plan to continue the 8am service and Adult Forum as has been our custom. Please keep our leadership in your prayers as conversations continue.
One of the key ministries we already share is a dedication to the ministries of GEDCO, especially the CARES food pantry, located just across York Road from Holy Comforter. The summer months are extremely desperate in the pantry as kids are home and need lunch, and donations tend to decrease. So please be extra generous with your offerings whenever you are able to bring them to the church. Items especially in need are: tuna, spaghetti sauce, canned fruit, and soup. Any donation, large or small is appreciated!
