The Chapel In Ministry & Mission

OUR SPIRITUAL LIVING THROUGH FAITH AND FILM

Sunday, August 19, 5:00 p.m., dish to pass! This is an opportunity to deepen our spiritual lives through culture, media and conversation.

Spotlight, the 2016 Oscar-winning movie, tells the story of The Boston Globe’s investigative report, which revealed the cover-up of Catholic priests who were sexually abusing children. It will lead to some important God-talk for us, as we imagine what our conversation needs to be with folks who question who God could possibly be in the Christian church.

FALL CHILDREN’S SCHOOL MINISTRY

One of our core ministries at the Chapel is this outreach to young children. Please shop for school supplies and/or clothing necessities for young students at Caroline, Enfield and Beverly J. Martin Elementary. School supplies let our children know we are with them in spirit as they learn. Clothing necessities are an offering towards their comfort and dignity. Download the list here.


REMEMBER YOUR DONATIONS FOR THE ITHACA KITCHEN CUPBOARD

In summertime, people get hungry, especially when kids and teens are home from school lunches. Cash donations in our noisy go a long way to buy cases of cheese, yogurt, eggs, crackers and cereal and much more, to keep families in our Ithaca community fed. Fresh produce may also be dropped off at the Salvation Army weekday mornings. Thank you for your steadfast generosity to this vital ministry. For a list of items to donate, please click here.
