Young Adult Gathering
Every other Tuesday night, 7:30pm at Panera Bread (1780 E. Jefferson Street in Rockville)
Continues on April 17, May 1, May 15, May 29 (and so on…)
We’ve begun to gather at Panera and you’re invited to join us! Adults in their 20s to 40s are welcome to come together at Panera Bread (1780 E. Jefferson Street, Rockville). You can also bring a friend!
Our format is free-form in nature where we bring our questions about life as a Christian in the 21st century and life in general. It’s a great way to take a break from our hectic lives to grow together and get to know one another.
If you have any questions, contact Theresa Eggleston, Faith’s Office Manager and a participant in this group at firstname.lastname@example.org .
April 28-29, 2018
Rebuilding Together’s National Rebuilding “Day” is the weekend of April 28-29. Rebuilding Together provides home repairs that allow elderly, disabled or low-income homeowners to continue to occupy their homes. Faith is partnering with B’nai Israel Congregation on a site this year.
We will be working on the home of a 96-year-old woman in Montgomery Village on Saturday, April 28. B’nai Israel will finish the work on Sunday. The work to be done is primarily painting and yard cleanup.
Please mark your calendar and sign up soon - it will help project leaders plan appropriate work for our skills. Teens age 14 and older may participate. You will get free coffee and donuts, lunch, a T-shirt, and the satisfaction of helping a local family. To sign up contact Carol Henley (email@example.com ) or Gary Clark (firstname.lastname@example.org ).
