Parish Resource Center update

As a member of the Parish Resource Center, we are providing you with the following information. 

The new location where meals are being served is at Shaarai Shomayim and Unitarian Universalist Church.
In partnership with PRC, they served 1,570 meals in January and February.  

The PRC is  looking for volunteers
available  to assist those recieving meals with computer access to apply for Covid-19 vaccinations and to avoid eviction. 


Volunteers Needed

PRC is expanding the services available at Community Meals by setting up computer stations. We are starting with two computers at three locations, but hope to expand to more.

At these stations, guests can schedule COVID vaccination appointments or apply to the Emergency Rental Assistance Program to avoid eviction. We need volunteers to be available to answer questions and help guests through the online forms and applications. We will fully train you on the forms; you just need good, general computer usage skills.

Thank you to Emmanuel  for sharing his music with us every Sunday.

Thank you to all our staff who work hard to keep Wisdom's Table going. We appreciate all that you do. 

Thank you for Children's Sunday School it brings joy and laughter to us each week.
Wednesday Book Group

 The group is discussing a book titled Sacred Instructions- Indigenous Wisdom for Living Spirit - Based Change by Sherri Mitchell.  The Group will meet from 10:00 to 11:30a.m. every Wednesday. If any one is interested you can email Pastor Anabel at and she will send you a Zoom link.

Adult Sunday School

Adult Sunday series
We meet weekly at 10:00 AM and are reading brief reflections from Every Thing is Sacred, a companion book to Richard Rohr’s The Universal Christ. 
Please consider joining us for this inspiring look at incarnational Christianity as framed by Franciscan Father Richard and Patrick Boland! You will be able to join the discussion without purchasing Every Thing is Sacred or The Universal Christ but having access to one or both will be helpful, both to read the very brief reflections before class and to use the Reflective Exercises on your own and in community!
Book(s) or not, please pop in for our Zoom discussion! You can get a link for the Zoom meeting or get more info by emailing Diane Koon at
