We support Grassroots of Howard County

Sue Bell Council Chair

The Women's Group planned, prepared, and served a meal for Grassroots Day Resource Center (DRC) on Saturday, April 15, 2023.  Nine volunteers supported the meal, Carole Manges, Sandy August, Maddox August, Judy Hewitt, Betty Kerwin, Janet Jew, Sally Murphy, Maureen Arndt, and Sue Bell. The menu included McRib sandwiches, chicken salad, rolls, coleslaw, baked beans, mixed berries, dyed Easter eggs, and brownies. The meal fed approximately 45 people at Grassroots DRC in Jessup, MD and leftover food was taken to Grassroot Crisis Center in Columbia (enough to feed an additional 20 people). Thank you very much to all the volunteers who helped with this meal! Your efforts not only provided a delicious, warm meal but sent a message of kindness and hope to 65 of our community members in need.   


Volunteers are needed for the June 17th and August 19th Grassroots meals.  Help is needed for both preparing the meal at St. Paul's (8:30 - 11:30) and delivering and serving the meal at Grassroots DRC (11:20 - 3:00 pm).  Please contact Sue Bell if you are interested in helping.  Thanks in advance for your support!

Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane

Our altar window above

"Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to his disciples, “Sit here, while I go over there and pray.” And taking with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to be sorrowful and troubled. Then he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watch with me.” And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.” And he came to the disciples and found them sleeping. And he said to Peter, “So, could you not watch with me one hour? Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Again, for the second time, he went away and prayed, “My Father, if this cannot pass unless I drink it, your will be done.” And again he came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy. So, leaving them again, he went away and prayed for the third time, saying the same words again. Then he came to the disciples and said to them, “Sleep and take your rest later on. See, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. Rise, let us be going; see, my betrayer is at hand."

Matthew 26:36-56
