What Binds Us
by Mandy Mizelle
Christians aren’t kidding about the lyrics to “Go, Tell It on the Mountain.” We belt out those lines on Christmas Eve, and over the hills and everywhere we go. For an undetermined amount of time.
On Tuesday nights in October (7th, 14th, 21st, 28th) we will present an educational series about trans and gender non-conforming identity and how we can be better allies and advocates as people of faith.
Join Pilgrim parents on second Thursdays from 7:30-8:45 pm in the Dowdy room for prayer, meditation, sharing and occasional reading and reflection.
We welcome new participants, even if your attendance is infrequent. We welcome mothers, fathers, caregivers of children of any age.
Childcare can be provided if you let us know ahead of time. Please ask Alice Dolbow if you want to learn more about the group.
During Lent 2013, the Board of Christian Service hosted a series on poverty in Fellowship Hall.
In Oct 2013, Pilgrim’s Board of Christian Service hosted an educational series led by Camryn and Ernest Smith, Asset Based Community Development Facilitators and Congregational Coaches, exploring ways that faith communities can engage marginalized people in our neighborhood and empower them to help themselves.
For videos of the speakers in both of the poverty series, go to Pilgrim’s YouTube channel.
PCM+ invites your prayers, dollars, meals and hospitality to support the growing faith of college students. Contact Rev. Katie Owen of PCM+ or Dan Barco at Pilgrim if you are willing to help provide Sunday night meals.
This support group meets on 1st Thursdays at Pilgrim, and 3rd Wednesdays at Community UCC in Raleigh. Meetings begin at 7:30 pm. www.pflagtriangle.org
CoSA circles are created with one purpose: No More Victims.
CoSA work to reduce the risk of future sexual victimization by supporting individuals released from prison with a covenantal relationship in their task of leading responsible lives. Reducing the isolation and secrecy reduces the likelihood of a re-offense. For more information, visit www.durhamcosa.org or contact Drew Doll at firstname.lastname@example.org.
