Prayer

God of our lives, you are always turning the world upside down, challenging us to follow you into new ventures, new challenges, new ways to care, new ways to touch the hearts of all. When we get tired, or feel disappointed, remind us that you can bring change and hope out of the most difficult situations, so that we may do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with you always. Let this be a year of abundant blessings for all people as we walk in the paths of righteousness. Continue to give us a spirit of hope, peace, love and joy, and help us to spread the good news of your love, grace and mercy among all people. Strengthen us and remind us that all things are possible with you. Amen.

Will Your Church be a 5 for 5 Congregation?

"THE CHILD MAY NOT REMEMBER, BUT THE BODY REMEMBERS"

DATE: Saturday, May 4 TIME: 10 – 12 Noon. LOCATION: The Community Church of the Pelhams, 448 Washington Avenue, Pelham, NY (at the corner of Highbrook and Washington Avenues)

A workshop addressing the question: how can we work together as parents and concerned citizens to counteract and shield our children from the traumatic effects of racism, so prevalent in our society…. even in our local communities?
Join a screening and discussion of RESILIENCE, a one-hour documentary that delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the birth of a new movement to treat and prevent toxic stress. How do adverse childhood events affect the mental emotional and physical health of children?
Then, participate in a moderated discussion of what we can do to help ALL children experience fewer ACE’s due to systemic racism.
This program will be moderated by Dr. Andrew Bell and Daniella Jackson from Westchester County government, and Marlene Furtick from Family Services of Westchester.
