Fit Through the Eye of a Needle

The Bible says it's easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heave - reflections on the value of money, and what it can and can't buy. Rev. Peter House

This Week's Drop-In Discussion: Micro-Loan Programs. Facilitated by Bill Holiday.
Diaper Drive

Lois Baum, Chair of our new "Homelessness Task Force" is asking you to donate to our Diaper Drive. Bethany House shelters homeless women and children. On Sunday, August 2nd, we will collect your unopened boxes of diapers in the Clara Barton Lounge after church. Diaper boxes must be unopened... any size, including diapers for adults. We will immediately deliver them to Bethany House as a donation from UURoc. Thank you.
