Prayers will encircle all members of the community including those experiencing homelessness. The evening will start with a soup and sandwich supper followed by worship.

RADA News - The catalogs are in with some new and updated products. You will find them by the kitchen. Make early plans for gifts for anniversaries, birthdays, Christmas or perhaps you need a new knife or peeler. There are also some hunting knives in a scabbard and sharpener. GREAT GIFT IDEAS.
