Thank you to Jim, (The Rev. James Kelliher) for picking up our check from the Dexter Grant.  We were awarded $1,000.00 dollars to help with the expense for the food pantry.  An even larger thank you to Betty Sloan for writing the grant and her group of faithful people who come and help with the pantry.  We give food out every second and forth Saturday to those in need.   People enter through the parish hall door and an then ushered around to the various tables to choose what groceries they like.  Many weeks we are able to give them meat such as chicken or turkey.  The food pantry is a blessing to us as well as those who come and shop here.  

Our Block Party is only a few weeks away

Many people have already volunteered to help with their “Block Party” on September 7th.  Please see the sign up sheets in church or the parish hall and think and pray about how you can help.  We will have a forty foot fire engine, plus Sparky the dog, face painting, games, Hula hops, music, hot dogs and hamburgers and more.  To make this a success we need all hands on deck!

Back Packs for George West School!

A very large thank you goes out to all who have donated backpacks and supplies.  Our goal was 25 backpacks and I believe by Sunday we will have reached our goal and maybe a bit more!  God is good and we are so blessed to be able to be part of the generosity of our God!

Our sign now welcomes all in both Spanish and English.  It is a small step to begin to welcome the community in which we are now living into this holy space.  It is a way of being co-creators with our God to make all things new.
