Sharing the Offering
we will share our offerings with
Welcome Neighbor STL.
Welcome Neighbor STL supports immigrants and refugees as they begin a new life in St. Louis. Services offered include family partnering to help read mail, schedule doctor appointments, navigate insurance, and create a support system for those newly relocated to America. WNSTL also offers English classes, driving lessons, group outings, holiday celebrations, and donation drives to help families in need.
Most recently, WNSTL has been focused on helping refugees and immigrants start their own businesses to be able to earn a meaningful income and give back to the St. Louis economy. To date, WNSTL has hosted over 100 interfaith supper club events, the proceeds of which go to the refugee cooks who prepared the food. These cooks give back to the community by preparing meals for veterans and homeless members of the St. Louis community. To learn more visit,

We are hosting two Zoom meetings for Religious Education. For this week, they are as follows:
Religious Education for Children & Families: April 5 @ 9:15 via Zoom
Eliot children and families (PreK-8th Grade) are invited to gather at 9:15 am via Zoom for connection and community. We’ll be checking in, sharing joys & concerns, talking about last Sunday’s Religious Education theme of “Saying Thank You,” and introducing the Easter outreach activity. Parents & families are encouraged to join their children. Co-hosted by Christie Lee, Tim Bubb, Noel Burke, and Heather Flick. Zoom links will be distributed by email on Friday, April 3.
Junior High Youth Meetup (7th & 8th Grade): April 5 @ 10:00 via Zoom
Youth in 7th & 8th grade are invited to gather at 10:00 am via Zoom for connection, check-in, and community building. Hosted by members of the Junior High leadership team. A Zoom link will be sent to registered 7th and 8th grade families on Friday, April 3.
Senior High Youth Group: April 5 @ 10:45 via Zoom
Eliot youth group members (grades 9-12) are invited to gather for community, connection, support, and conversation. The “room” will open at 10:45 am and activities begin at 11:00. Hosted by Scott Stewart. A Zoom link will be sent to Eliot youth on Friday, April 3.
Zoom Coffee Hour
At 11:30 am, you are invited to “walk down the hall” so to speak and come to our Zoom Coffee Hour! We’ll take about 10 minutes or so to gather and let people settle in. Rev. Barbara will say a few words of welcome and then create break-out rooms – random groupings of 5 or 6 people. Everyone will likely make a new friend at Eliot from this exercise! You’ll have the chance to introduce yourself and then share your answers to a few questions, like “How has this week been for you?” and “What feelings has it brought up for you?” Each person has about 5 minutes to speak; you are welcome to pass if you like. In half an hour, everyone will return to the big group and we’ll say our goodbyes for the week. Remember: this is an experiment! We promise at least some technical glitches and awkward moments, but also laughter and maybe a few tears. Just like church. Please watch your email for a link to join the Zoom coffee hour.
