The Congregational Blog.-Priesthood of all believers.

Thanks to the Fabrangen

We truly received an extravagant welcome when members of the Fabrangen invited Lincoln Temple to a small seder at on of their member’s homes. This occasion marked the 45th and 25th anniversary of a “freedom” seder between the two groups.

Palm Sunday- Beginning of Holy Week

If you will be out of town for Easter please consider going to church for Palm Sunday.

In the summer of 2014 Rev. Boyd got the ball rolling to get the church to consistently make sandwiches for Martha’s Table above U Street. Every 4th Sunday after service we will make sandwiches for Martha’s Table, saving their volunteers and staff time and help feed the hungry. If you can’t stay after service feel free to drop off a jar of peanut butter or jelly. If you would like to donate bread feel free to bring that as well. Sliced cheese is appreciated as well for the meat sandwiches. Veteran and newbie sandwich makers are always appreciated.

We will be doing our Sandwich Making Ministry on January the 17th this month (third Sunday) for Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Day that is observed on Monday the 18th.

If your multi-lingual how do the… Read more →
