Celebrating Our Fantastic First Five Years – In six:eight Style!

The six:eight UCC community celebrated our 5th anniversary on September 18. How did we commemorate this milestone? By putting our faith into action, of course! After our regular worship service of hearing the Word and some joyous bluegrass music, we assembled flood buckets for Church World Service. CWS distributes kits and blankets to support refugees, victims of floods and fires, homeless shelter guests and migrant workers. We are so honored to support our Christian partners truly making a difference in the lives of displaced children and families the world over!

We assembled five flood buckets, for five wonderful years of community service! We even donated a bonus sixth bucket, because that’s just the kind of people we are. So come join us as we begin our sixth year of doing justice, loving kindness and walking humbly with our God!

Here are some highlights from our festivities:

As always, we start our worship with some rousing music praising God, with our own Luke Chohany leading us in song!

We also extend a great big thanks to our six volunteers who helped out on September 10th at the Baltimore Teacher Supply Swap. The BTSS collects classroom supplies that people no longer need and distributes them to teachers, schools, and educational programs. With no paid staff, the BTSS relies on volunteers to sort donations, stock the shelves, and assist visitors. We’re so proud of our members who gave their time to such a worthy cause!
