Join us for a chili lunch and collection of canned goods for GEDCO CARES food pantry/monetary donations for Manna House.

In honor of the 49th Super Bowl game, we are looking for:

49 cans of soup

49 boxes of macaroni and cheese

49 cans of vegetables

49 cans of applesauce

You can bring these items in next week for the large soup pot in the Narthex, to the 8 am service for the offering on February 1, or directly to the lunch.

This is part of the national SouperBowl of Caring, involving churches and community organizations sharing the extreme bounty that can be found at Super Bowl parties with those in need. To RSVP call the church office at 410-235-2356 and BRING YOUR CANNED GOODS!!


February 1 Change in Schedule

Posted by FEELC Web Admin on January 10, 2015 at 9:55 AM

Beginning February 1st, we will change to the following schedule:

1st Sunday of the month—two services at 8am and 10am

All other Sundays—one service at 10am

with Christian education for all

at 9am.

February Adult Forum

Celebrating February as Black History month, the Adult Forum will focus on a PBS program entitled “Slavery by Another Name.” The program tells the story of black people in America between the years of the Civil War and World War II, challenging the notion that slavery ended with the Civil War. We expect you will find this story disturbing and thought-provoking, even as it prompts our hope for a world today without human labor trafficking. Marya Zeigler will lead the exploration of this profound and important topic in February. Each class will include a time to watch the video and time for discussion and questions.

Added bonus: On February 8, when Marya must be elsewhere, Pastor Burggraf will lead a class on the "Dead Sea Scrolls." These ancient documents, discovered by accident, have given huge insights into Jewish history around the time of the beginning of the “Jesus movement” that grew into Christianity. We’re sure you will find this topic fascinating.

Remember the new time for the Adult Forum: 9:00 a.m.                          

Please join us! 


January 22-24 A Practical Conference for Economic Equality

Posted by FEELC Web Admin on January 10, 2015 at 9:55 AM

As Christians, we care deeply about social justice and know that the church can create change. But on a practical level, how do we take on the pervasive, overwhelming issue of economic inequality? The gap between rich and poor continues to grow at exponential rates, creating suffering world-wide. Trinity Episcopal Church in New York City has planned an Institute with speakers having real-world experience in making change happen. The Institute will be simulcast here in Baltimore. These speakers will provide us with hopeful, practical tools we can use in our community to make a positive economic impact.

When? January 22-24, 2015

Where? Simulcast will be shown at the Episcopal Cathedral of the Incarnation

Who? Pastor Don has agreed to serve as one of the small group leaders and hopes to see you there.

January 19 MLK Day of Service 2015

Posted by FEELC Web Admin on January 10, 2015 at 9:55 AM

This year, the Churches of Charles are honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in a big way with a day of service on Monday, January 19. There are many great projects going—check out this link for information on cooking, building, making cards, playing Bingo with older folks, and much more:


Part of this effort involves putting together bags for the Gallons of Love project that is ongoing at University Baptist Church, where bags are available for members to take in their car and give to people who are out on street corners, especially in this terribly cold time of the year. At our own church, the Christensen/Worthington family has put together these bags as a ministry outreach as well. Our Sunday School started last week to gather items for these Gallons of Love bags and we will be making bags available starting this Sunday, January 11th after the 11:15 service, with the hopes that many will be able to take bags with them on Sunday, January the 18th and honor Dr. King on MLK day by passing bags out to anyone you see in your car travels in the area. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE BAGS, WE NEED:

Socks, gloves, hand warmers, feet warmers, snacks (granola bars, peanut butter crackers), SMALL water bottles (8 oz), bandaids, Wet Wipes, chapstick, and small packs of tissues. The idea is to make this as lightweight and portable as possible, while still providing some much needed support! Want more info? Email Laurel Bassett at
