Adult faith formation: the Great Migration

Millions of black Americans migrated from the south to the north in the 20th century. This Great Migration was like a refugee movement we would see today—but within one country’s borders. Join us during adult First Hour faith formation at 9:30 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 28, to discuss Krista Tippett’s “On Being” podcast on this timely topic. Tippett talks with journalist and author Isabel Wilkerson. Wilkerson’s book “The Warmth of Other Suns” chronicles the migration and the lives of the people who took part in it. We will play the first 15 minutes of the podcast to set the stage. However, we recommend people listen to it beforehand or read the transcript if possible. Go to the podcast page In February, our adult First Hour theme will be hospitality and welcoming.
  • On Feb. 4 Rev. Rick King will discuss what the scriptures say about hospitality.
  • We’ll have an all-ages Super Sunday service project Feb. 11.
  • On Feb. 25 we’ll discuss becoming a welcoming community with Do Good Roseville. (There is no First Hour Feb. 18.) All adults are invited to join in.

January food collections

This month we’re collecting soups, chili, stew and other canned food for hot meals with protein. The donations will go to the Department of Indian Work food shelf. In addition, we’re collecting low-sugar cereal, granola bars and snack packs of nuts or dried fruit for for students at Falcon Heights Elementary School. Students take the food home on Fridays to help tide them and their families over during the weekend. Falcon Heights Church is one of several congregations supporting kids in this way through the Sheridan Project. Please place your donations in the designated bins in the church lobby.

Help make blankets for Project Linus

Kids and adults are invited to help make no-sew blankets in an all-ages service project Sunday, Jan. 14. This activity is part of our monthly “Super Sundays” during our 9:30 a.m. First Hour faith formation classes. The blankets we make will go to other children in need of emotional comfort from a soft, warm covering. Project Linus brings people together to “provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer ‘blanketeers.'” All materials are provided.

Two water buffalo and counting

Last month our Sunday school children collected money for Heifer International. Heifer gives farm animals to families in poor areas of the world, offering them a sustainable livelihood and a chance for a better life. Our congregation donated $935.18–enough to purchase two water buffalo, with money left over to buy additional animals or support other projects for farmers and communities. Read more about Heifer Thanks to everyone who gave to this project!
