LENT Is Upon Us!

This Lent, our theme at Hope Central Church is “Fear: the movement from fear to love.”

We believe that – outside of when fear is a necessary human emotion in the face of immediate danger – it is fear that keeps us from love. It is the lack of love that keeps us from Racial Justice, love of ourselves and love of one another.

Read Reverend Jarrett’s blog, with some beginning ideas about our work.

The Ministry of Justice and Compassion has an ongoing Rosie’s Place drive to collect items for the poor and homeless women who depend on Rosie’s Place for emergency shelter, for a safe place to take a warm shower, and for seasonal clothing. The following items can be left in the Rosie’s Place box in the church:
• Travel-sized Toiletries (like those from hotels)
• Towels
• Twin Sheets/Pillow Cases for the emergency shelter
• Hats, Scarves, Gloves and Mittens

The Curley School Coat/Uniform Drive

The Ministry of Justice and Compassion has an ongoing Coat/Uniform Drive for our partnership school, the Curley K-8 in Jamaica Plain. We are gathering the following items to help support the students and their families, more than 80% of whom are living below the poverty line:
• winter coats, size 3 – adults,
• winter gear such as hats, gloves, mittens,
• plastic hangers.
• Pants/shorts/skirts/jumpers/dresses: tan, navy, black (especially sizes 8-adult)
• collared shirts and blouses: white and light blue (especially sizes 8-adult)
All donations need to be washed and in good repair and can be put in the bin at the back of the church.
