KENSINGTON CARES FOR CAREGIVERS
Wednesday, Nov 13th
7:00pm at Christ Church
Come for a community discussion about resources for caregivers, led by a panel of experts in Montgomery County who know the network of services and ways to access specific care.
This is truly geared toward supporting all our many neighbors who face the challenge of caring for a loved one, so invite your friends. RSVP to event coordinator Winnie Holbrooke, by email or call 301-509-8097.
6:30pm service: Evening Prayer with Holy Communion
7:00pm light supper, followed by the panel discussion.
ARCOLA THANKSGIVING FOOD BAGS
IT’S ARCOLA ELEMENTARY THANKSGIVING FOOD BAG TIME! There are so many families that can’t afford food for their children, which is why Arcola Elementary provides two healthy meals during the school day to children in need. But what happens when there is an extended holiday? Our parish generously steps in to fill bags of nourishing food and food gift cards to help those families in need make it through the holidays.
How do you give the gift of food?
- Pick a pumpkin from the “patch” on the Outreach table
- Take the food shopping list and/or donation envelope (if you don’t have time to shop)
- and fill a bag of food for the children. (Note: these items are specific and requested by the school.)
- Return filled food bags to Church no later than Sunday, November 24th (sorry, no exceptions!)
It’s not only a fun and rewarding experience for the whole family, but you are Making a Difference in the lives of many children and their families who live in our own “backyard.”
