The eSojourner 

Chalice Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)

Throughout the Easter season, we'll be collecting toiletries and other household products for refugees resettling in the Phoenix area. Take a flower at the front of the sanctuary with an item to purchase for the baskets. They're things like toilet paper, laundry detergent, and soap--things that cannot be purchased using SNAP (food stamps). 

Once the baskets are full, we'll send them off with a local member of the American Muslim Women's Association, who facilitate this effort throughout the Valley. We'll also have the opportunity to send a person or two to accompany the drop-off to the family. 
Along with Community Christian Church and Foothills Christian Church, Chalice will have a table at the Phoenix Pride Festival. The postcards are printed. The banner is ready to be hung. It's a good time to remember what being an Open and Affirming church means: everyone, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity,  is invited to the full life and leadership of our church. That's something to be proud of at Phoenix Pride!
Youth Group!
The East Valley Youth Group meets Friday, April 8th, 6-8 p.m. at Community Christian Church. Be there! 

I know who I am, do you?
This Sunday and next, you will have a chance to sign up for the "permanent" style of name tag that you would like to wear.  The choices are; pin, magnet, clip, lanyard or sticky (disposable).  The name tags will be ready for use by April 17th. 
We encourage you to wear one as a sign of hospitality and welcome from the Chalice family
