Kids are at Home in God's House

God put the wiggle in your children – so there’s no need to suppress it here! We take Jesus’ charge to “let the children come to me” seriously. During the program year, we offer nursery for children under 3, Sunday School for younger kids, youth group for those in grades 6 – 12, and fun activities that build faith and fellowship year round.

Beyond Our Walls/ Outreach at Holy Comforter

We are a collection of individuals who live the calling of our baptismal covenant in Christ, to respect the dignity of all persons and to seek the living Body of Christ in all of those around us.  As we all are ministers in the body of the church, we call out, in each other, the ministries that lie within.  We follow the circle model that is becoming a foundation of our growing together; each meeting begins with the Gospel, prayer, reflection, intercession and finally, task.  As we grow as disciples, we grow as servants.  As we grow as servants we realize that we become part of the living vine of Christ's presence in the world.
Our focus has changed greatly in the past two years.........each person in the group brings their mission to the group and we all begin to share a vision of what focus BOW will take for the coming time.  We have decided to focus on these ministries for the present time:
  • Continued collaboration and service to the Relatives, who serve homeless youth and at-risk youth in three primary areas, the main house on East Blvd.; On Ramp, for those who have passed 18 and are no longer helped by social services; and a group home.

 

  • The restoring of recycling at Holy Comforter.  Working with the O'leary Group, you will begin to see blue and red containers with notices on them that tell you what can and cannot be recycled.  This is a large learning curve for those who have thought that we were a recycling campus.  We have not been for several years.  See our booth at the Ministry Fair to learn more.

 

  • Creation Circle at Holy Comforter.  In addition to recycling, we will begin to explore the ways that we, as individuals, can stop the climatic damage that has been done to "this, our island home."  Members of 350.org meet monthly at the church, They are a statewide group that promotes good and sometimes radical ways to effect change.  We also will be introducing an every other month gathering of people for discussion, or movie and dinner to see what we can do to make changes in our lives.  Those dates have not been set, but will be on a Thursday night every other month.

 

  • QC Family Tree. We have seen the Jarrells in action, both music and vision.  Our book group has studied one of Greg Jarrell's books.  Now, we begin the integration of how we can assist them in their focus on social justice.........and how we can change our lives through the experience. 

 

  • MeckMin. Founded in 1987 as Mecklenburg Ministries, MeckMin is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization of nearly 100 member congregations representing more than a dozen faith traditions. MeckMin promotes interfaith collaboration to foster understanding, compassion and justice. Visit their website for a complete list of upcoming events.
