Forgiving Heart Church
On Saturday June 9, we were voted into the United Church of Christ, (UCC), unanimously. UCC is an affirming church, and has a history of being very progressive. During the time when the Supreme Court was in the process of making a ruling for marriage equality, UCC filed a brief in support of marriage equality. They continue to be a denomination that is supportive of marginal peoples. I look forward to working with them in helping the all inclusive love of God all people.
Our 30 year Anniversary was a wonderful time.
The Spirit of God touched many people.
BALM ministries outdid themselves with music, singing a mixture of new and traditional songs, as well as songs we could sign along with.
Several awards were given to some of the leadership who have devoted time and energy for over 18 to 25 years.
We were surprised by an award from US Congressman Bishop for our many years service in the community.
The Columbus HIV/AIDS Quilts, which are housed at Forgiving Heart, were on loan to Northside High School in association with their production of RENT. In their appreciation they donated a new quilt panel which is now on display in our sanctuary along with the original panels.
To view them outside of Sunday worship, call 706-681-5246 for an appointment.
