From the Pastors

Englewood Friends,

Many of you know we are, as in past years, collecting an offering for CBF Global missions.

This year the missions and ministries committee affirmed the idea of sending our offering to a friend many of us have met. Byron Buffalo is a Lakota pastor from Bridger, South Dakota, and continues to work with Lakota in this community.

Part of Byron's ministry is an equine therapy ministry. In September, Pastor Mark had the pleasure of participating in this powerful ministry.

Our goal for this effort this year is $600. As we discovered last year during this time, small amounts from many friends can make the difference. If 20 of us contribute $20, then we will exceed our goal! Keep in mind that our financial participation in this is a part of a much larger effort.

Food Pantry News

Food pantry donations are always welcome!

We are a small congregation,
with an average of 40 people in services on Sundays.
Yet the generosity and lovingkindness
of our church members
reaches so many people in need.

We are grateful to all of the individuals and organizations who contribute to this vital ministry throughout the year.

In December, we provided 42 families with food. These families were comprised of 73 adults and 63 children, for a total of 136 people

Items we were unable to purchase from Harvesters and would welcome as donations include:Pancake Mix & Syrup,
Corn Bread Muffin Mix.

Thank you for your food pantry donations and special thanks to Judy Ellis, Sandy Lane, and Ed Baxter for their help with this important ministry!

Englewood News

Englewood staff recently learned about a new series being produced through the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, called Beyond Belief. This series will challenge community members to imagine concrete ways to strengthen dialogue among people of different faiths, and Englewood invites YOU to
join the conversation!

Through digital storytelling and events designed with partners in the community, Beyond Belief will explore the interplay of religious life with youth culture, race, civic engagement and economic disparity.

These discussions are just one part of a larger initiative being implemented through 14 other projects around the country.

Click the link below to learn more about opportunities for Englewood to engage in this effort that combines outreach, dialogue, professional and “street” media with a concentration on religion, faith and spirituality that has the capacity to transform audiences and media-makers in the U.S.
