Opportunities for Families to Volunteer together

Rebuilding Together was a complete success again this year, in spite of some weather issues.  There were 31 volunteers ranging in age from teenagers to seasoned adults.  On Saturday, May 7, we completed five different projects for Orchard Village, a home for developmentally challenged adults.


Annual Benefit a Heartwarming Success

Together, we raised more than $111,000 for our Outreach agencies at the 17th Annual Benefit! Our deep gratitude goes out to the 280 some guests at the April 22 fundraiser, and to all who contributed to make the program a success. Volunteers who would like to carry this energy forward by leading the 18th Annual Benefit are invited to contact Cindy Lillard for details.     More Pictures

Communion Prayer—June 26

Help undo our own fear, O God. Where politics divide us, bring new unity. Where migrating neighbors change us, bring new love. Where economies shift, bring new hope. Where violence ruptures, bring new peace. Where pain undoes us, bring new rest. Where grief dominates us, bring new relief. Where life gets in the way of life, bring discernment.

Just Bring Greetings

By Katie Snipes Lancaster
