EASTER OUTREACH 2015
This year, we’re partnering with over 20 other churches and organizations throughout the region to distribute 3,000 Easter dinners to neighbors and build three wells in South Sudan. You can learn more about this amazing project here.
We still need to raise over $40,000 to reach our $75,000 fundraising goal, so please consider giving to this effort. This week is a matching grant week, so every dollar donated will be matched, up to $5,000!
We'll also need volunteers to help pack and deliver the 3,000 meals. After our Main Line service on March 29, we'll have lunch together and pack meals right at Rosemont College. Then throughout the following week, we'll continue packing meals at sites throughout the city. On April 4, volunteers will be working out of 9 sites throughout the region to deliver these meals to our neighbors. To find out more about the packing and delivery schedules, the different sites, and to sign up to serve, check out the Easter Outreach website.
HOLY WEEK AT LIBERTI CHURCH
During Holy Week, we try to draw closer to Christ is his journey to the cross. At Liberti, we'll be doing this through a couple of special services. Join us at 7:00 PM on April 2 for a community Maundy Thursday potluck dinner, and again on April 3 for a Good Friday service. For more details, including specific locations and what you can bring on Thursday, please click here.
WOMEN'S RETREAT 2015
The women's retreat is a fun and relaxing weekend away where we connect more intimately with God and each other - you don't want to miss it! We'll be heading to Ocean City, NJ again from May 15 - 17, where Julie Van Til will be speaking to us on the topic of "Rhythms of Life - Rhythms of the Sabbath." Click here to learn more and sign up.
