Sunday Church School is a thriving ministry at The Brick Church, involving 300 children each year and over 100 adult and youth volunteers! We provide Sunday School for infants through seventh graders. Infants through toddlers may be taken to the nursery on the Youth Floor, where paid sitters and parent volunteers supervise. Children age three through seventh grade attend Sunday School.
Join us around the table in the Third Floor Dining Room at 9:45 a.m. each Sunday. The leaders and the summer schedule can be found here.
Are you looking for volunteer opportunities in the local community? There are many opportunities to grow closer to our friends at Church of the Living Hope this summer. Here are three unique ways in which you can grow and serve with our neighbors on 104th street in East Harlem:
1. Are you interested in participating in a community meal with the migrant community in East Harlem and hearing their stories? Church of the Living Hope will be helping to host an event called “La Mesa” or “The Table.” In partnership with the Cabrini Coalition, we will be gathering with the migrant community around a meal to listen to stories, and learn how we might help serve those in East Harlem. The first “La Mesa” meal will be the evening of June 17 at 6:30 p.m.
2. Do you love to garden? Work continues on their brand new sacred green space throughout this season. Throughout the summer, volunteers are encouraged to help plant, tend to raised bed plants, or offer educational resources for aspiring green thumbs.
3. Would you like to lend a hand serving those in need? Jan Hus is distributing food and clothing up at Church of the Living Hope and in need of volunteers. Approximately 50 to 75 families and individuals receive food and clothing on a weekly basis Wednesdays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Opportunities to help set up the sanctuary as well as handing out food and clothing are welcomed.
Are you interested in any of these opportunities or do you have other ideas about how these two congregations may work together? Please contact Ruben Nuno or Rev. Doug King.
