a welcoming, affirming, justice-seeking congregation

This Morning Jane Nicholls will take the pulpit, to lead us in worship and share her faith story with us. Jane, we’re grateful for the gift you are offering in our midst this morning. Please note that Nancy is away this weekend, but will be back in the office on Tuesday.

The Sharing Basket You will see a white basket under the front stairs marked The Sharing Basket. As an outreach effort we collect items for the third Sunday of each month to supply some of the needs at North End Community Ministry and St. Matthews Maryland Community Ministry, according to their wish lists, which are posted in the AMEN corner. We will now include our own Winnipeg Harvest depot , which has requested our help specifically , to augment the supply of feminine hygiene products and, currently, diapers sizes 2 and 5. Thank you for your generous help. The next Sunday is May 15th to donate as you are able.
