  • Service Opportunity! We have another opportunity to be of service to the Sandtown-Winchester Public Charter School in Baltimore City. They are in dire need of uniforms for their students. Many students wear the same clothes each day due to lack of money to purchase new clothes. The school uniform is a basic khaki pant and solid color lite blue or white polo with no logo in sizes 7, 8, 10, 12, and 14 for both shirts and pants. If you are able to donate, please bring any unused, newly purchased items to the school through Monday, March 20.
  • Students will not be permitted to order lunch from local restaurants through Door Dash, Uber Eats, or any other food delivery service. These cause disruptions to the school day and encourage student phone use. Thank you for your understanding.

  • The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace. ~Psalm 29:11
  • Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. ~1 Peter 5:7
  • Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. ~Matthew 11:28
