Woman’s March participants and friends: Let’s keep the momentum going! The National Women’s March has launched a 100 day follow up action plan. The first action is a postcard writing campaign. We have had 100 postcards printed and will be having a POSTCARD PARTY after church today from noon to 12:45. We will gather in the dining room to complete our cards and chat about our experiences and ideas for moving forward. If you are not able to participate please feel free to pick up some postcards. If you were not able to march on January 21 but were with us in spirit, you are more than welcome to participate. The more, the merrier! We are hoping to schedule other follow up events as well, so stay tuned!

Childcare and lunch provided. We will have you done by 1:15. This process is vitally important to all members of the church, no matter your age. Please join us for food and conversation.
