Samaritan House Supper Club


I wanted to take a few moments and share a little bit about Samaritan House Supper Club opening the invitation to anyone interested in spreading the blessings. I have had the opportunity and privilege to carry on Kathy Munn's legacy and it has been an honor. I'd like to share in this experience with you. 

Agape' Samaritan House supper Club is every 2nd Friday of the month from 5 to 6:30pm. We serve pizza, dessert, chips and sometimes fruit. Food is provided all we need are individuals to serve food, spread love, smiles and acceptance. Normally there is extra food so we can sit and mingle with the residents, which they so enjoy. 

We all have an area where we can serve and if you feel you are being lead to share your spark, I'd love to serve beside you. Please reach out to me either by phone or email, if this sounds like something you would be interested in doing.

Thank you,

Rebecca D. McDonell

The main objective of the A.L.I.C.E. (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate) program is to provide options increasing chances of survival during an “Active Shooter on Campus” emergency.   It is designed to be an enhancement to the standard “lockdown” system used for emergency situations.

Our Security Team will be providing additional training soon to our community customizing our response and defining roles during any perceived threat on our campus.

Thank you to our Security Team for the many ways you care for our community and keep us safe.
Prayer for General Conference

We lift up our eyes to You, God of many names,

So You can send the Holy Spirit to us, and inspire us for a new Pentecost

For the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches;

May it infuse the gifts of dedication, commitment, loyalty and sustained love,

Through the call to continue expanding the Radically Inclusive Message from the Gospel.

May we acknowledge that diversity and difference will always be enriching,

Even with our varied views and understandings we can reach unity;

And what is truly important is to continue responding,

After these first 50 years, to the vision and mission You have set for us all.

May General Conference be a time for prayer--in many languages, uniting and strengthening our faith.

In Your many names, and from different spots on Earth, we pray,
