NEW CHURCH OF MONTGOMERY INVITES YOU TO OUR ALTERNATIVE HARVEST FEAST
Since we are not able to have our Harvest Feast potluck this year, we are inviting you to choose what you would have brought to our in-person celebration and, instead, send a check to the church for its value. The church will match the donations and the money will be donated to the Cincinnati Freestore Foodbank.
The Food Bank hopes to distribute over 14,000 Holiday Meal Boxes during the holiday seasons this year. They can serve 3 meals for $1.00, so even if you are thinking a can of cranberry sauce, your donation will be useful
Here is our usual sign-up sheet – no need to let us know what you’re “bringing”. Duplicates are fine! We usually have around 25-30 people for our meal.
Our latest outreach project, Books for Bethany House yielded a donation of 45 books to Bethany House Services, a family shelter in Cincinnati, OH. Through book purchases and monetary donations, Blue Manatee Literacy Project and Bookstore will supply books that will be given to children experiencing homelessness. Their mission to
(partner) with local schools, educators, volunteers and staff, (donate) books help build classroom and home libraries, with books in varying reading levels and written by own-voices authors and
to spread the love of reading to all children across Cincinnati—in the hopes that we will watch them grow and flourish, and continue to spread that love of reading throughout their life.
You know that feeling when you are into a book and nothing else matters in the world. Well, you can help give a child that same care-free feeling when you buy a book from Blue Manatee Literacy Project.
Don’t have time to pick out a book? $12 buys one book and Blue Manatee will pick it out for you. Finding ways to be useful can be tricky some days. This is one idea where you can combine love with wisdom.
While people didn’t celebrate Pride month in typical ways this year, please know that our church, while not open physically, is open to all LGBTQ+ folx, to hold a place for their light and love in the world. We are here to celebrate your spirit, your connection to the Divine and your place here in our small, but open and loving congregation.
Find your church, find your home. #ChurchNearMe #Open #Affirming #Welcoming @NewChurchCincy
“Survival lies in sanity, and sanity lies in paying attention…The quality of life, is in proportion, always, to the capacity for delight.” Julia Cameron
As we weather these days ahead, days of uncertainty, let us pay attention and enjoy the moments that uplift us. Sharing our gifts of noticing, and nurturing. Listen to the birds beginning their morning discourse before the sun has even created the horizon. Listen to the sounds of children tumbling out of bed. Listen to the beat of your own heart. Here for a reason.
This evening, at 7 pm, The New Church of Montgomery will be co-hosting the annual Glendale Village Thanksgiving service with the Glendale New Church.
Other churches participating are First Presbyterian, Christ Church (Episcopal), St. Gabriel, and the Transfiguration Spirituality Center. Clergy from each group will be involved in leadership and we will celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with prayer and choir music.
