CHOW Pantry

As we near the holiday season we ask for parishioners to keep our CHOW clients in their thoughts, as many of them rely on CHOW for meals for their families. We are currently in need of toiletries (full-size bottles of shampoo, lotions, etc), toothpaste and toothbrushes, toilet paper, diapers, and female hygiene products.

Donations via our donation page or check are also welcome.

Connie, our parishioner who worked closely with CHOW is now battling cancer. In place of meals for her and her family, she has requested donations for the CHOW pantry.

Pledges & Donations

Pledges and other donations can be mailed to the church. If you do not have envelopes, we will use the name on your check.

Please note our online donations are up and running. You can donate via our website at With thanks to Ryan Davis, you can now simply click donate to send your pledge or other special donations. You can donate specifically to CHOW, Katie's Closet, the Rector's Discretionary Fund and Cross/Roof Repair.

Prayers & Prayer List


A Prayer to honor Indigenous Peoples Month

Let me not look away, O God, from any truth I should see. Even if it is difficult, let me face the reality in which I live. I do not want to live inside a cosseted dream, imagining I am the one who is always right, or believing only what I want to hear. Help me to see the world through other eyes, to listen to voices distant and different, to educate myself to the feelings of those with whom I think I have nothing in common. Break the shell of my indifference. Draw me out of my prejudices and show me your wide variety. Let me not look away. Amen

Prayer List

We ask that our parishioners pray for Alli, Anne, Bob, Carolyn, Connor, George, Sharon, Rose, Millie, Joell, Mario, Connie, and Kristina.
