Party on the Patio

Write By:

Part of the joy of a day like Community Serve Day is to see how God was at work though others as they were serving.  As we begin a season of Lent, take time to draw closer to God and experience how He works through the experiences of others.  Get to know someone new at the Party on the Patio, listen to their stories and share yours.   And yes there will be patio games and prizes!  Whiffle Ball, face painting, a photo booth and food.  If you have ever wondered what you......

Underwear and Socks Needed

Underwear and Socks Needed

Write By:

Underwear is a big budget item for PUM (Presbyterian Urban Ministries) because we feel that everyone who comes here for clothes should receive a pair of socks and underwear, too. Clean undies are something that we take for granted but are a blessing for someone who has been liv­ing on the streets or cannot afford this very basic of human dignity. Please bring clean underwear (any size, either gender, the guys prefer boxers to briefs) or pairs of socks. All sizes needed, children to adults.  Thanks for helping us to “love our......

Weekly Prayer Focus–Music and Worship Ministry

From its inception, “while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy” (Job 38:7), to its consummation, when “every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them” will sing to the Lamb on the throne (Rev. 5:13), creation is musical. “All nature sings and round me rings the music of the spheres.” We are fortunate to have talented musicians and singers in our congregation......
