Jazz Prayer: Songs for Saints & Sinners

Friday, October 16, 2015 - 7:30pm - 8:30pm

Hope — In the midst of times of loss, defeat, or drudgery there is a call from beyond us that moves us towards goodness and peace. This is the place of Hope. That light, though sometimes dim, that grants us a path in the dark.  This gathering is designed to be meaningful and comfortable for people who consider themselves "spiritual but not religious” and for people who love jazz music performed well.  You'll encounter an hour of music like this. All are welcome. Come early to enjoy community over light refreshments. Third Friday of every month at 7:30 pm. 

Middle East and Europe Refugee Crises

Lutheran Disaster Response is committed to meeting the basic humanitarian needs and upholding the rights of those fleeing war and oppression. We are working – and in the coming weeks and months ahead will continue to work – with our trusted partners and companion churches, who are helping provide safety, support and basic amenities, such as water, food and shelter. Your gifts are needed now to help with immediate relief. Gifts designated for the Middle East and Europe Refugee Crisis will be used in full (100 percent) to assist those directly impacted by this crisis


US Flooding - Disaster Relief

The Carolinas have endured catastrophic rainfall that has shattered records and left unprecedented scenes of flooding in its wake. The hardest-hit areas stretch from Columbia, in the middle of South Carolina, all the way to the coast. The flooding has led to the death of nine people, tens of thousands are without power, major highways and interstates have been closed, and homes have been completely destroyed. Donate to the relief effort here.
