Weekly Update, May 18
The Reverend Kathy McAdams is our preacher on Sunday, May 18 and will lead an Adult forum after the 10:00am service.
From Ecclesia Ministries Website:
“Ecclesia Ministries began in the spirit of being present to, and praying with, those who are homeless, in order to learn about their struggles and hopes and to offer spiritual support. Thus Ecclesia provides companionship and community to homeless people, a sustaining fellowship that distinguishes Ecclesia from other social service agencies serving homeless people. By offering caring, predictable communities that come together through common activities, Ecclesia seeks to end the isolation homeless individuals face. The relationships that are forged provide a foundation of spiritual comfort and trust and provide room for meaningful change.”
