Easter Sunday

PrayerSong

PrayerSong

Second Sunday PrayerSong offers a more than usually contemplative worship experience of word, song, and lots of stillness. Not the pure silence of the mountain monastery, but the stillness of an inner-city church where we welcome as part of the experience the street noises, creaking pews or bones, and wiggly, crying babies (as Rev Dave says, if there’s not a fussy child in worship it doesn’t count and we’d have to do it all over again anyway).

RE kids raise $500 in Healthy Snack Drive

Healthy treats make the summer tastier and far less stressful for families that rely on the Northside Community Food Pantry. The families that depend on  the Food Pantry struggle at home during the summer to make up for the free breakfast and lunch that their kids get at school. This summer our Religious Education kids decided to put on a Summer Healthy Snack Food Drive for the Northside Food Pantry. After publicizing during church, going door-to-door in the neighborhood, and having a table at the Open Streets festival, the kids raised money and collected an estimated $500 in healthy snacks!...
