Mind Wholeness Ministries: Spiritual Support Group
Mind Wholeness Ministries of First Christian Church offers a spiritual support group for people and families facing mental health challenges. Anyone desiring spiritual and/or emotional support is invited to this group.
The group meets the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the Parlor.
The Rev. Mary Alice Do facilitates the groups and is working with our denomination’s National Benevolent Association to help churches become welcoming and supportive of people affected by mental health challenges.
Bilingual Prayer Vigil
Vigils of accompaniment and hope are a time to pray for our hospitality guests; those affected by the political, humanitarian, and legal complexities of the border; others experiencing challenges; and to lift our concerns for our lives and the world. All are welcome. The prayer vigil takes place on Thursdays at 6 pm in the chapel.
Jewish Voice for Peace
Jewish Voice for Peace will set up a “sukkah”–a temporary structure like a ramada–for the Jewish holiday of Sukkot (the plural of sukkah), Oct 13–20 at FCC on the Speedway sidewalk.
Sukkot is a harvest festival, a time of thinking about shelter and a time when we welcome the stranger. It is also the most joyous holiday in the Jewish calendar, because it follows the intense work of reflection and making amends during Yom Kippur.
Sunday, October 13, following Worship: Jewish Voices for Peace will join us for worship and lead an event following the service. Learn about Sukkot –the history, music, dancing, and decorations. Lunch is potluck.
Thursday, October 17, 7:00-9:00 pm: Film: Imprisoning a Generation, a documentary of the stories of four young Palestinians who have been detained and imprisoned under the Israeli military and political systems. Cosponsored with the Arizona Palestine Solidarity Alliance. Following the film, attendees will have the opportunity to fill our postcards in support of the “Promoting Human Rights for Palestinian Children Living Under Israeli Military Occupation Act” (H.R. 2407).
Friday, October 18, 6:00-8:00 pm: Shabbat potluck with Alex Kack (#GreenShirtGuy), organizer for the People’s Defense Initiative, focusing on Tucson Families Free and Together. Please bring food from your culture to share at the potluck. If you have a vote by mail ballot, join us in our walk to the 1st Avenue & 1st Street mailbox to send it following the meal.
