We are all struggling in different ways during this time. Yet there are ways we can reach out to our neighbors; join us as we work to make a difference!

CLASSROOM SNACKS for Brookridge!

Brookridge teachers keep snacks on hand for their students, and as they begin 2022, their supplies are low. The snacks make a big difference for their students – and we can help! Check out the flyer in this insert for suggested donations and bring them by Sunday, February 13th, to the green table near the Connect & Serve counter during the month of January! Questions, email Janette Schumm (

Until then . . . There are many in need of our prayer – those who have been diagnosed with the coronavirus . . . those with health concerns before the virus began . . . those who have lost loved ones. We also hold in prayer those who stand against injustice and racism, that all people may live in dignity and in peace.

And by all means, pray without ceasing. God’s blessings, Ros Thorpe, Director of Outreach
