Bi-Monthly News & Notes

Join us this Wednesday for Rally Day in Frankfort!

We hope each of you will be able to attend as we continue to stand in solidarity at our state's capitol to rally for statewide fairness, for all. This is a time for Faith Leaders to gather from all over the state to join together and show our support for LGBTQ-friendly legislation and to give witness to our mutual belief in God's enduring love. There will be many events and we hope you will be able to come and spend the day with us. The events are as follows:

  • Faith Leaders for Fairness Prayer Breakfast at 7:30am in the  cafeteria of the Capitol building.
  • Caucus with other clergy/faith leaders in the lobbying room following breakfast
  • Prayer in the Capitol Chapel right before the rally and then proceed into the rotunda as a group (in vestments)

Ash Wednesday Worship @ DBCC

Game Night is Returning... 

Let the games begin! We will once again be gathering every month for an evening full of games, snacks, and merriment. We begin on February 28th at 7pm at Chuck and Mary Ann's home. If you are interested (or simply willing) to host, please contact Clare Rutz.


The youth are headed to Mexico, but we'll need your help to get them there. Here are some of the ways:  1) Sign up for the Kroger Community Rewards Program  (let us know if you need help) 2) Save your forgotten treasures for the yard sale in May 3) Hire the youth group to help with odd jobs or, better yet, take the night off and we'll watch the kids! We also sort socks, clean garages, and make dinner.  Contact Clare (502-554-4057) if you want to help!
