Help Us Support Church of the Common Ground This Sunday, 1/20

As an outreach of the Diocese, Church of the Common Ground holds an Episcopalian church service in Woodruff Park every Sunday at 1 pm for the homeless. St. Benedict’s will provide sack lunches on one Sunday of each month in 2019. In January you are asked to bring sack lunches with you. Later on in the year we will be holding lunch making activities the morning of our visits to COC. It will be a great time of fellowship and helping others. As always you are invited to join us downtown for the service, too! The St B’s caravan will leave from the kitchen about 12:15. For questions, contact Taylor Stukes.
