Heart of the Enneagram

Heart of the Enneagram

Heart of the EnneagramCome and explore deepening your personal and spiritual growth through a study of the Enneagram.

A ten-week study beginning Wednesday, January 13.

“The enneagram is a system that offers clarity about self, compassion for others, and insight into relationships. Learning the Enneagram wakes us up to the habits and patterns of our lives, helping us recognize that we have the power to choose different ways to interact, respond, and engage with ourselves and others. In short, the Enneagram is a tool for bringing about more compassion and freedom in the world.” (Sandra C. Smith & Christopher T. Copeland)

Free Food Pantry

Free Food Pantry Needs Items! The current state of our world has led to a lot of food insecurity. Please remember to pick up extra non-perishable items for the food pantry.

Many thanks to everyone who is contributing to the outside pantry box. We even have neighborhood folks helping.

If you haven't seen it yet, it is a box along the lines of the “little free library” boxes. By the sidewalk near Pastor Liz’s parking space on Horne Street is a small box on a post with glass doors doors and a roof. Inside are staple items, cans of food, dried beans, some ready to eat foods, and some personal size toiletries, as well.

Thanks to the Outreach Team and everyone who worked to provide the box–Check it out!
