March is FoodShare Month!

Our 100th building anniversary plays a part in our donation drive!

As we continue to celebrate the 100th year of our building, we recognize the emphasis of Grace on social justice and meeting the needs around us. Grace supports Community Emergency Services (CES), which provides a variety of services to anyone in need. One service CES provides is The Neighborhood Food Shelf. In 2015, The Neighborhood Food Shelf served more than 80,000 client contacts and distributed 516,000 pounds of food. Each afternoon, Monday through Thursday, 20-35 people with food needs are interviewed. A Wednesday evening session provides food shelf hours to make it more accessible for working people, who are an increasing percentage of CES’s clientele.

On Sunday, January 29 at our Congregational Meeting (following the 10:30 worship in the sanctuary), one action will be to adopt a statement of solidarity with the Muslim community. This statement has been developed cooperatively by our Social Ministry committee, council, and pastors, and was reviewed by interested community members at a forum on January 22 – feedback from that session has influenced the final draft. You can read the statement here: Muslim Solidarity Statement, January 2017

We ask you to keep in mind that usually sermons are crafted for a particular day and with a particular audience in mind, but we hope that these words speak to whatever you need to hear when you encounter them.
