Reflection and Preparation
Songs* – All
Creed* – All
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, the Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; The third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy Christian church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.

Feed My Starving Children (Sat, March 1st | 4:30 PM – 6:30 PM | 555 Exchange Court Aurora, IL)
Join us as we volunteer at FMSC, a ministry committed to eliminating starvation in children around the world! We will participate by packing and preparing food packs that will be distributed in numerous countries (http://www.fmsc.org/home). There are currently 25 spots open and will be on a first-come, first-serve basis (sign-up at the Welcoming Table). If you are interested or have questions, please contact David An (email@example.com).
Exodus World Service (March)
Exodus is a ministry that helps refugee families become acclimated to their new lives in America (http://www.e-w-s.org/). Specifically, TRC will get involved by setting up a home for the family and gathering a month’s supply of essential household items. After the initial move-in, we will also continue to meet with the family on a regular basis to acclimate them to their new lives. Currently, we are planning on collecting supplies starting March and hope to welcome the new family by the end of March! If you are interested or have questions, please contact David An (firstname.lastname@example.org).
