Area ecumenical worship, fellowship set for Sunday


January 19, 2001|By Peg Adamarczyk | Peg Adamarczyk,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

SEEKING TO SPREAD a message of Christian unity, clergy from area churches are inviting the community to an ecumenical worship and fellowship meeting at 3 p.m. Sunday at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, 7859 Tick Neck Road.

The meeting will begin a week of prayer for Christian Unity, A.D. 2001, a program sponsored by the Pasadena Area Ministerial Association, a coalition of more than a dozen Catholic and Protestant churches.

According to the Rev. Brian Rafferty, association leader and pastor at Our Lady of the Chesapeake Roman Catholic Church, Sunday's gathering will begin with a combined worship service led by Catholic and Protestant clergy members highlighting the common bond of Jesus Christ, and celebrating support for the ministry of the North County Emergency Outreach Network (NCEON).

Marsha Frazier, president of NCEON, will speak.

Ministerial members will conduct a discussion on outreach ministries sponsored by local churches. They will also present several topics involving outreach programs, including housing, prison and feeding ministries, as well as holiday ministries to the needy, and health and children's ministries.

The meeting is free and open to all. An offering will be taken to benefit NCEON.

Information: 410-255-1070.

Shoot some hoops

Young hoops players can test their mettle at the free-throw line in a basketball free-throw contest sponsored by the local Knights of Columbus' Monsignor Raymond P. Kelly Council from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow at Lake Shore Elementary School, 4531 Mountain Road.

The contest is open to girls and boys ages 10 to 14.

Winners will advance to the district level to compete for prizes.

Information: 410-437-7320.

Super soup and subs

Planning for Super Bowl Sunday parties may be a little easier, thanks to food fund-raisers planned at two area churches.

The Women of St. Andrew's Episcopal Church is conducting its Souper Bowl Sunday sale of quarts of homemade chicken noodle, vegetable beef, 15-bean and bean soups.

The cost is $5 per quart.

Soups will be sold after the 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. worship services Jan. 28, and organizers ask that people bring containers.

Proceeds will be used to buy tables for the parish hall.

Information: 410-255-1070.

The youth group at Emmanuel Lutheran Church, 8615 Fort Smallwood Road, is accepting orders for sub sandwiches for pickup Jan. 27 - the eve of the game.

The 8-inch Super Bowl Subs include a choice of cold cuts, ham and cheese, or turkey for $3.50 each, and will be packaged with cheese and lettuce, with tomato and onion on the side.

Orders will be accepted through tomorrow.

Information: 410-437-3792.
