Thank You! | Potato Peelers
Many thanks to Robyn Reals and the Potato Peelers cast for sharing with us yesterday morning. Starring in the various roles were: Narrator, Paul; Mom, Birgitta; Toby, James; Tabitha, Amy; Stranger 1, Stephen; Band Microphone Tester, Rick; Aunt Julia, Rob; Crowd, Donna, Stephen and Lily.


Thank You! | ASPAN Bag Lunch Project
To assist our neighbors without homes and others in need in Arlington, we stayed together after worship to assemble 50 lunch bags (100 sandwiches, water, fruit, and homemade cookies) which will be distributed by ASPAN (Arlington Street Peoples Alliance Network) today for lunch. When delivered yesterday, the ASPAN chef said they weren't sure what they were going to serve, so the donation filled a need.
