UPCOMING LENTEN OPPORTUNITIES:
Non-perishable Food Drive: Our Sunday School students once again are sponsoring our parish-wide effort to collect non-perishable food items to help restock the much used shelves of the Food Pantry of First Presbyterian, Brooklyn Heights. The students have prepared bins to receive donations; they are located in the rear of the nave.
Racial Justice & Reconciliation. SIGN UP! Check your calendars for which Sunday you can attend a small-group discussion on the topic (March 12, 19, 26, or April 2) and sign up for one group at coffee hour. Remember to come to the home group primed with thoughts and questions on the topic from your reading/viewing of materials on the Resources list as well as from your own experience. The Lenten small-group discussions will be followed on the Sunday after Easter (April 23) with a parish-wide luncheon meeting, and in May with a community meeting open to the general public (TBA).
Third Friday Dinner for Charity: Help support outreach to Episcopal Ministries of Long Island, by attending the Supper for Charity on March 17. Yes, it will be a Lenten Friday; and yes, it falls on St. Patrick’s Day. The food will be Irish—plenty penitential enough. The conviviality might be too Irish and not Lenten enough, but proceeds will help others, and you won’t have to wash dishes. Bring friends! $5 child, $15 adult, $30 family max.
First Holy Communion and youth/adult Church membership/confirmation classes Has the day come for your child to begin receiving Holy Communion? Are you a young person or adult who is considering formal membership in The Episcopal Church by way of Confirmation or Reception? If so, please speak with the Rector.
The 2017 Directory is now available. Please pick up your copy at coffee hour. If you find any errors or omissions, please contact Rob Snyder. Periodically, we will publish corrections and updates so that we can keep our copies current.
