Mask Policy Update Archwood will, following CDC recommendations, go to a mask optional policy for in-person worship. You may be unmasked providing you feel well and are symptom free. Masks will still be offered for those who prefer to use them, and we respectfully ask that you consider zoom-attendance if you are unwell. Please know that this policy is fluid – meaning that we will resume masking if so advised, or if local rates warrant it.
Seeds of Literacy seeks volunteers Seeds of Literacy, an organization which pairs tutors with people needing to pass their GED tests, is looking for evening volunteers. (Their evening sessions run from 6:00 to 8:00.) There are volunteer options at both of their brick-and-mortar sites (one on the east side and one on the west) and there is also a virtual option (via Zoom), meaning you don't need to leave your home to tutor -- an especially attractive choice in bad weather! You don't have to be a genius in any subject to tutor -- you just need to be committed and reliable. If you're interested in volunteering -- or just getting more info --you can e-mail SOL at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Next produce sale: March 26 Archwood UCC sells produce to the public at discount prices on the second and fourth weekends of each month from 11am to 1pm. Without a supermarket or farmer’s market in our neighborhood, we’re doing our bit to offer fresh fruits and vegetables that can otherwise be hard to find.

Podcast Recommendation New Faith New Media is an independent media network discussing faith with a social justice lens. It currently features three podcasts - one of which is by our very own Aidan McCormack! Aidan’s show is called Breaking Fast, and it’s available to listen to on https://anchor.fm/nfnm. Check it out - and while you’re there, give the other two shows in the network a listen too!
