  • Prayer at the Pub

    Interested in a less structured discussion and exploration of prayer over dinner with friends? Join us for prayer at the pub! Don't worry, we'll say grace but we won't be openly praying in public. We'll meet for dinner and an open and wide ranging discussion about prayer on Sunday, February 24th at 6:30pm at the Dogfish Head Grille in Gaithersburg (800 West Diamond Avenue). Please RSVP to Pastor Holly at HollyRJackson@gmail.com so that we can reserve a seat at the table for you!

  • Got Veggies? Share them with Germantown Help!
    This month we are collecting canned vegetables for Germantown Help's food pantry in order to feed the hungry in our area. (As always all kinds of food are welcome, but having a focus food helps us to remember to give and challenges us to see how much we can collect.) We suggest that you look for low sodium or no salt added options in addition to regular canned vegetables. You can also pick up some canned veggies that might add some flavor to an otherwise bland meal. Canned chilies or diced tomatoes with seasonings might be a great pick as would low sodium canned veggie soups. Go buy some veggies and share them with someone who needs them this month!
     
  • February Prayer Station: Praying with Maps
    Praying with a map reminds us that there is a whole community, nation, and world around us that we could be lifting up in prayer. There are three different panels at this prayer station. The first panel includes a map of the Upper Montgomery County Area. Consider your neighborhood, your neighbors, and the concerns of those who live right next door to us. Write down on a post-it a prayer concern or a prayer you have for our area such as a prayer for a local school or a community concern, prayers for the homeless we see at so many local intersections or immigrants in our community, and even prayers for issues around gangs, development or local businesses that might impact our neighbors, etc. In the second panel consider our state and our nation. What challenges do we have that we need to lift up to God? What can we be thankful for? What are the justice issues we need to keep before us as we do our ministry? Write them down on a post it note. Finally, as you move to the final panel consider the prayers we need to lift up for our world. What prayers do we have for creation itself? Write up a prayer for our neighbors around the world, and include issues such as war, famine, violence, and tyranny. But also include prayers of thanks for places you may have visited in your travels that have impacted your heart and soul. Praying with a map can help remind us that we belong to an intricate network of humanity and creation itself. We have much to be thankful for, but also much to cry out to God about and ask for help with. Let us be in prayer together.
