WELCOME FROM HAYWOOD STREET:
We’ve made a change! Online worship is now available via Facebook LIVE as opposed to live-streaming on YouTube.
This week, worship will begin at 1:30. Pastor Brian will lead us through Matthew 14:22-33 and our question will be, “What does Jesus see in Peter that’s so faithful?”
We anticipate a few more weeks of worship looking much like it has for the past couple months. It is our intention to begin outdoor, safe and socially-distanced services by September and we intend to continue live-streaming for those unable to be present on campus.
You are invited to spend time in the sanctuary in front of the Fresco on Tuesdays from 10:00-12:00, by appointment, beginning August 11. All safety protocols will be followed including limiting the number of people inside at any given time, and masks required. Restrooms and other parts of the church building will not be accessible. This will be a quiet time of prayer and meditation. To reserve a 20 minute time slot, email April.
Garden Meeting: Friday 8/14, 6-7pm @ Haywood Street in the parking lot
At our first garden meeting, an abundance of great ideas showed up to get us started. Now looking to the harvest season, let’s meet again & pool our thoughts on how to celebrate one another, the folks supporting Haywood St. Gardens, & the abundance of the earth. (Note: If you are able, bring a seat for yourself. If possible, bring an extra seat for someone else.)

A HAYWOOD STREET INTRODUCTION TO: TAYLOR
I stumbled onto Haywood Street Respite while looking for a meaningful gap year experience before heading off to medical school. As soon as I arrived on campus, I was overtaken by a sense of radical kindness. Everyone who walks into the doors of Respite is seen as a fundamental member of the community. By sharing meals, laughter and conversation, pre-conceived notions and social hierarchies are forgotten, while meaningful relationships are forged. Respite provides a place to rest, to heal, and to just be, and everyone is given the space to remember their own intrinsic worth.
