Family Promise Host Week July 24-31

It's confirmed: we will be the FIRST congregation to host the families on site since the pandemic!  

But we need your help to pull this off!  We need Evening Hosts (5-8:30 p.m.) every night but Tuesday, a Saturday afternoon host (1-5 p.m.), and help on Sun 7/24 setting up the bedrooms after the 10:30 a.m. service and on Sunday  morning 7/31 at 8 a.m. to breakdown the bedrooms.  

If you can volunteer for any of these shifts, please email Kay Wolf at kaylynnewolf@gmail.com. 

And if you think you might be interested but need more information, come on Thursday, JULY 21 at 6 pm to the parish hall for our WINE AND CHEESE TRAINING & MEET and GREET (our staff liaison at Family Promise, some of the volunteers from First Congregational who cook dinner for our guests 3 nights a week, and perhaps some of our own volunteers that you wish you knew better) .

special prayer042820
May we who are merely inconvenienced, remember those whose lives are at stake.
May we who have no risk factors remember those most vulnerable. May those who have the luxury of working from home remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent. May those who have the flexibility to care for our children when schools close remember those who have no options. May we who have to cancel a trip remember those who have no safe place to go. May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market remember those who have no margin at all. May those who settle for quarantine at home remember those who have no home.
As fear grips our country, let us choose love during this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other, let us find ways to be the loving embrace to God and our neighbor. Amen.
Prayer by Cameron Wiggins Bellm


Welcome to St. Richard's Episcopal Church!
All are welcome at the table of God
Every man woman and child.
For Christ brings peace to all,
Tearing down every hostile wall.
So that the many may become one,
One heart, one family, one new humanity.
For God who is love, and Christ who is all and in all
Show no partiality and make no distinction.
So neither race nor class, gender nor sexuality,
Politics nor religion, personality nor nationality,
Count for us, or against us.
The light of Christ enlightens all:
Christ the prisoner and the naked,
Christ the hungry and the sick,
Christ the thirsty and the stranger,
Christ the other.
May God’s spirit hover over our chaos,
Our hatred and our indifference.
Descend in our hearts with love and pleasure.
Blow us out into the world to listen and serve.
And set us ablaze to forgive and reconcile.
For all are welcome at the table of God,
Every man, woman and child.
Welcome to St. Richard’s Episcopal Church!!!
