Steeple Chase Appeal
Perhaps you’ve noticed the tarps on the roof? Or the peeling paint on the exte- rior of the sanctuary? These are the most obvious problems, but there are a few more! We also have a parsonage with mold and asbestos and a deferred mainte-nance account that needs revived. We need $400k to put our critical “houses” backin order, including fixing the sanctuary, bringing the parsonage up to health and safety standards, and beginning a deferred maintenance fund.
It is time to invest in the heart of our church community and we have a very unique opportunity in the next 60 days. A generous donor has pledged a $100k dollar-for-dollar match for all STEEPLE CHASE APPEAL donations received by May 31, 2018.
Look for the Steeple Chase Appeal donor cards in the sanctuary seats, contact the office, or simply drop off your money in an envelope to the office! Every penny counts.

Sanctuary Restaurant Movement
We are asking you to literally put your money where your mouth is by supporting the Sanctuary Restaurants (www.SanctuaryRestaurants.org) movement.
Launched earlier this month by Restaurant Opportunities Centers United (ROC United, www.ROCUnited.com), a restaurant worker advocacy group, and www.Presente.org, a Latinx social justice organization, Sanctuary Restaurants provides resources to restaurants, enabling them to support our community, including our undocumented immigrants.
We won’t swallow hate and we need to make sure that the restaurants that we are giving our money to are standing with all-of-us. Here’s how: Go to www.SanctuaryRestaurants.org, read about the movement, and sign up. (5 minutes) Print these cards. Keep them in your wallet, and take them to your favorite restaurants next time you go. Or call or email your favorite restaurants and tell them about Sanctuary Restaurants. (5 minutes)
