FAITH UMC - EVENTS & OPPORTUNITIES:
FREE Mental Health & Drug Abuse Prevention Workshop on May 14 @7-9pm at Faith UMC
We are inviting in experts on these subjects from local social service agencies to come in and provide this training. Mental health struggles and the opioid crisis are epidemics that are taking the lives of so many people and impacting their family and friends. In many cases the individuals who are impacted have underlying mental health struggles that fuel their addiction. We cannot keep silent about either of these topics and the lives they impact nor can we allow them to stigmatize people. We are inviting everyone to this informative session--whether you or a loved are struggling you are welcome to join us.
No Tickets will be required but seating and parking will be available on a first come/first served basis. If there is more interest than our facilities can handle, we will look to offer additional sessions and/or locations. Contact Pastor Jason at (717) 333-9238 if you have questions. If you are actively struggling and need help now, please call 211 for support--or 911 if it is an emergency.
Equitable Public School Education Funding Rally is at the Harrisburg Capital Rotunda on June 12 @ Noon
Busses will be available to travel there. To reserve a spot follow this link and register for the Lancaster POWER and the busses leaving from Park City. There is a large discrepancy in how much money is allocated per pupil in each of the 500 PA school districts—and the data shows that this is skewed by the race of the students in the district. To learn more, join us for this rally. There are opportunities to meet to learn more about this school funding issue and to get involved. Contact Pastor Jason for more info.
Table Talk - Mondays at 7pm at the General Sutter Inn -- A reboot of our former Lifetree Cafe Program
Table Talk is our new Monday Night Conversation Cafe. Lifetree Café has been a great program for the last few years. However, for a variety of reasons, the leadership team has decided that we are going to try a different format. One of the exciting goals is for the new program to allow even more time for dialogue at the tables--and an opportunity to go a little bit deeper on the topic for the week. We are going to do a pilot of the new Table Talk format beginning on May 6th, and encourage you to come out and join us. This week’s topic: “Jonah: Do You Run Away from Your Call?” As always, "Your thoughts are welcome; your doubts are welcome. We're all in this together." So, we will be eager to hear your feedback about how we can continue to improve this conversation cafe!
Table Talk is an outreach ministry where people who are not currently part of a church can come out and discuss a variety of issues where faith and life intersect—including hot-button issues like relationships, immigration, forgiveness, loss, etc. Table Talk is held at the General Sutter Inn in Lititz on Monday nights @7pm. Bring friends who are not currently engaged with a church out for dinner and a discussion. You can buy appetizers, a meal and/or drinks during the session. Visit www.lifetreecafelancaster.us for more info of the upcoming topics. And please like and follow us on Facebook to get weekly updates: Lifetree Cafe - Lititz. Stay tuned as these we eventually migrate to a new website and Facebook Page.
