Interfaith Hospitality Network – a few volunteers still needed

Our next week hosting families from the Interfaith Hospitality Network with Beth David is April 28-May 5.

We still need a few volunteers:

  • Dinner on May 3
  • Overnight on May 3
  • Help with person who is providing dinner on April 29
  • Take down bedding on May 5

Please sign up here if you can help with any of these times.
Dinner slots include making a meal and eating with the families.
Overnight means sleeping in your own private room on the same inflatable beds that the families use. The overnight shift ends at 6:30 in the morning.
For those of you with children, IHN encourages you to bring your families both to eat and to sleep overnight.

For those who haven’t volunteered before, we need your police and child abuse clearances on file.

Many thanks for helping in whatever way you can!

Pancake Breakfast and Ash Wednesday Dinner

As we prepare for our Lenten journeys, Community Breakfast on March 3 will be our annual Shrove Sunday pancake feast. 
Bring some fatty foods to share or just come and eat.
We will continue to have time to share what we have been learning in our education programs.
Some will need to leave a little early for choir rehearsal.

Then on March 6, we will gather again for dinner in the sanctuary (with meat and vegetarian options), before an Ash Wednesday Service in the Community Room.
This will be a time to reflect on our upcoming theme of Awareness for Lent and to receive the blessing of anointing.

Please use the following sign-up sheet to let us know if you can come.
