The Week of February 17th, 2019
“Understanding and Responding to Our Homeless Neighbors” Part 3: February 21st, from 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm.
In this workshop we are planning to cover how the opioid crisis is impacting homelessness, what are the options and requirements for detox, as well as inpatient/outpatient rehab and harm reduction strategies. Cornerstone Medical Arts will also be joining us to offer a free overdose prevention training and will provide narcan kits to anyone who attends. The bottom line is that drugs and alcohol are both a cause and a symptom of homelessness and need to be addressed in a dignifying and holistic way. Please come with humble and receptive hearts so that we can learn to understand and respond to our homeless neighbors who are suffering with addiction. Email Chelsea Horvath for information about registration.

The meals ministry is in need of your help!
Our numbers are dwindling, but the needs of our parishioners are growing! We are blessed to have many new babies joining our congregation, and would love to support our parents during this joyful, chaotic time. In times of illness, surgery recovery and grief, we also want to support those in our congregation with meals. Please consider helping this simple and powerful ministry stay alive by signing up or recommitting yourself if you’ve already signed up! Though home-cooked meals are certainly nice, no need to be a fancy chef – we live in a city with endless delivery possibilities! Email Kerry Salvatierra to sign up.
