Silver City Community Agape Event (Meal and Art workshop!)

Agape means Love. Let's come together for a Free Community Meal and Activity to celebrate our love for one another! You will have an opportunity to participate in creating rainbow hearts to send to a Montana church that's been vandalized due to their loving stand for the LGBTQ community. See details below.

Where: Fellowship Hall at 1st Presbyterian Church (1915 N. Swan St. Silver City, NM)

When: 1:00 Meal followed by a Rainbow Heart workshop @ 1:30 pm.

What: The Billings Gazette reports-"A volunteer discovered a swastika painted on the choir room door, and more anti-gay literature pinned to a bulletin board inside the room. Outside on a church sign that reads, “Open doors, open hearts,” someone had scribbled, “No gays."

Our friend from Grace United Methodist Church writes on facebook:
"Hate has broken into a church that I love.
Grace UMC has done nothing but love their community and profess “Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors” - welcoming all to worship and fellowship there.
I am not looking for opinions on this one. I’ve made this post public so you can help spread the word. (Please, if you feel the need to share some of your opinions or rhetoric send it to me privately.)
I am looking for partners willing to show Grace UMC some love and support in the darkness of what has happened in the last two weeks.
Let’s help them fill every window with rainbow colored hearts with words of love and encouragement.
If you are willing, send rainbow colored paper hearts with your support to:
Grace UMC
c/o Pastor Sarah Beck
1935 Avenue B Billings MT 59102
Can you help fill their church with love?"

All Community Agape Events are FREE.... however, we like to know how many people to expect so we can provide enough materials and healthy, delicious food for all.

RSVP at https://thewayoftruth.coachesconsole.co ... loves.html

or bring some art materials or a side dish to share.

Life is Beautiful.....so let's Love it up!

Invited: Everyone
