Memorials for This Week

In memory of Raymond Roy

Lillian and Comer Train

Marianne and Gwyn Raker

February's Altar Rail Gift is for Urban Recipe. Urban Recipe has a rich history of working alongside communities to create cooperation, build community, and honor the gifts, abilities, and talents that people bring with them into Urban Recipe. They work with people as opposed to “helping” so that relationships are formed, community grows, and people gain what they need, as well as helping others to have the same. Their mission is to partner with our members and supporters in creating food security, building community, and providing a platform for personal development while affirming dignity.

Here's how to give: Give online and select "Communion Offering" from the drop-down Fund menu. Or, mail a check to the church office and indicate "Altar Rail" on the memo line.

Until we meet again, know that you are loved!
