East Harlem Ministry Call for Volunteers:
The Brick Church Deacons as part of the Cabrini Coalition and our outreach to the community in East Harlem, will be distributing 285 $100 “Cabrini Cards” and boxes of food at the Church of the Living Hope on East 104th St. to recipients who have been pre-selected from the community based on need. We are looking for volunteers to help with the distribution and will schedule volunteers to limit the number of people. The Cabrini Coalition is an interfaith partnership of Brick Church, St. Francis de Sales, and Church of the Living Hope, and, we will be partnering with Catholic Charities in this event. In our prior distribution, we found that 77% of recipients had lost their job due to the pandemic, 38% were staying home to care for their children, and the typical recipient lived with their spouse children and in some cases their parents. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Jeff Shayne.

Sunday, May 9, 9:30 a.m. via Zoom
Brick Church Elder, current Princeton Theological Seminarian and future pastor, Peter Manning, will lead an adult education discussion focused on forgiveness. Together we will walk through some of the most radical scenes of forgiveness in the Bible. We will discuss what those stories tell us about how we are called to live as Christians and the transformational, and sometimes complicated, way forgiveness plays out in the Christian life. Come join our friend, Peter, as he takes us on a journey of forgiveness.
