You are all invited to our third bi-annual Community Justice Party on Saturday, November 2, from 7-9 pm. There will be a program in the sanctuary of music, skits, poetry, and activities highlighting several social justice issues, and then we will meet in the fellowship hall for light refreshments and a rousing cake and pie walk (walk tickets 25¢ each, so bring lots of quarters)! The suggested donation for adults is $5 (although more will gratefully be accepted), and children are free (with child care provided for in the nursery). And if you have a song or reading or anything else that you would like to contribute to the program, contact any member of the Social Justice Coordinating Team – Norma Bailey, Joyce Henricks, Jen Prout, Sara Prussing, Candi Tomlinson, or Katie Zapoluch. This was a highlight event two years ago, so be sure to have it on your calendar!
The Social Justice Coordinating Team is presenting a new film by Robert Greenwald from Brave New Films: “Suppressed – the Fight to Vote” on Saturday, October 26, at 7:00 pm. The film chronicles the rampant voter suppression that affected the outcome of the 2018 midterm election in Georgia and the threat it poses to our elections all across the nation in 2020. We will also have available materials for people to register to vote and to apply for an absentee ballot. Bring friends and family members to view the film and engage in this important conversation.
This Sunday, the special offering is for R.I.S.E. (formerly Women’s Aid Service), an agency serving domestic violence and sexual assault victims in Isabella, Gratiot, and Clare counties. If you prefer to write a check, please address it to R.I.S.E.
