ShareFest!

Sharing is fun! And an important part of living in community with each other. On September 1, we'll gather for a brief worship experience, immediately followed by a potluck lunch and an opportunity to swap stuff.

Bring a dish to share and anything (clothes, toys, shoes, accessories, household goods) you no longer need but still has life left in it. You don't have to take anything and you don't have to bring anything... or you might bring or find all kinds of treasures. You do you.

Spread the word! Invite your friends and neighbors!

El Refugio Deportation Bag Drive

Some churches in the area are teaming up to collect items for men who are being held/deported at Stewart Detention Center. Over 2,000 men are being held at Steward Detention Center right now and 95% of them will be deported. These men came into the country with little/nothing and are leaving the same way. Although ICE does not allow them to leave with much, they will allow them to receive a deportation bag. Your donations will go directly to these men, through the work of El Refugio.


Items needed* (gently used items are accepted for all except shoes):

  • Backpacks or duffel bags with working zipper

  • Men's pants (Jeans or other casual pants)

  • Shirts (Polo shirts or t-shirts are okay)

  • Socks

  • Underwear

  • Shoes (new shoes are greatly preferred)

  • Shell Gas Cards in increments of $25

*The men receiving these bags tend to be in their 20's and 30's and tend to wear small/medium with some larger sizes. The clothes should be casual and for warm climates.

There is also a Target registry if you would like to purchase items that will be sent directly to El Refugio for distribution!

You can drop your donations in the bin in the Connector anytime before Thursday, August 15 or you can take them directly to Holy Trinity Episcopal in Decatur.

Singing for Fun for Everyone
May
20
7:30 PM19:30

Singing for Fun for Everyone

Singing for Fun is both a forum for individuals to learn more about their own voice, and a way to build community through group singing.

The workshop includes body and voice integration, calling in elements of Tai Chi, Yoga, and Alexander Technique, as well as dance, theater, and vocal improvisation to focus on breath and ease of movement.

Singers learn songs that explore the vast expression of harmony from around the world. Drawing from her love of diverse melodies and rhythms, Elise might introduce a Brazilian samba, a Congolese storysong, an Italian round, or four-part harmonies from Zimbabwe. There are also lots of songs in English, including songs from the African American tradition, quirky rounds, food songs, Elise originals, and lots more!

All of the songs are broken down into easily learnable parts and become thrilling to sing in a group. Even people who think they “can’t carry a tune in a bucket” in no time find themselves part of an impromptu glorious chorus.

Singers of all levels of experience are welcome.

Music reading is not a prerequisite.
