PEACE WOMEN’S BOOK GROUP – OUR NEXT READ

Join us on Friday, March 6, 2020, in the Church Library to discuss the book,  Small Great Things, by Jodi Picoult.  Small Great Things is a #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER with richly layered characters and a gripping moral dilemma that will lead readers to question everything they know about privilege, power, and race.  This stunning new page-turner is soon to be a major motion picture.  Join us for great discussion, food and fellowship.  For more information, contact Christine Pearson at 443-758-7576 or garychris1812@gmail.com.

Lutheran Family Services

The Refugee & Asylee programs are in need of donations in order to provide for newly arriving families. We are not sure when they will arrive but we know there are a few large families in our pipeline that we want to be prepared for. Right now, our biggest needs are: new pillows, kitchen tables and chairs, couches (nothing big/bulky/heavy, no sectionals, or reclining couches), dressers (preferably tall and not long), and shower curtains with liners and rings. We greatly appreciate any and all donations so that we can help these families get on with their new lives here in the US! Contact Jenna Dolecek at 719-314-0737 or jenna.dolecek@lfsrm.org.

Churches, we could really use your help in recruiting more foster families.  Please post the following announcement in your bulletin and/or on your website and social media.  Feel free to share the full list of meetings, but if you prefer to only share the meetings that are in your area, that is helpful as well.  Thank you!

Each year in Colorado, thousands of kids are unable to live with their biological parents because of abuse or neglect.  We need families who can provide temporary care until children reunify with their parent, as well as families willing to adopt children and teens if they can’t return to their families.

Come find out if foster care is the right path for your family! No-cost, no-obligation, informational meetings are held throughout the Denver Metro area. You can find a list of our upcoming meetings on our website.  https://www.lfsrm.org/about-us/events/  Individual meetings that fit your schedule can also be arranged.  For more information contact Nicole Brown by phone at 303-217-5853 or by email nicole.brown@lfsrm.org
