A Mindful Response

Saturday, August 11, 7pm


The "unite the right" march will be happening in Washington DC on Sunday Aug 12th.  The white-nationalist group is planning a parade from the Foggy Bottom Metro station to Lafayette Square.  Join us the night before at Western Presbyterian Church as we rally around love and together take a mindful response to hate.  The service will conclude at the Foggy Bottom Metro station where we will offer prayer aloud and in chalk on the ground where marchers will take their first steps the next day.

MIRIAM'S KITCHEN MOMENT

The Power of Case Managers

Say hello to John O! John recently moved into his new home with help from MK Case Manager, Esther Ford. John is elated to be in his new home and he continues to praise the MK staff for their work to get him into a stable place. “It shows the power of the case manager... We need more case managers. I try to bring everyone in to Miriam's Kitchen to get connected with a case manager. We need you to steer us!" Esther was able to get John into a unit and have it furnished right away so John could enjoy his new bed and have a place to watch a few shows on his 55” TV.

We’re so happy that John was able to get the help he needed at Miriam’s Kitchen! Without the gracious support of the leaders and congregation at Western Presbyterian Church, connecting these guests to safe housing wouldn’t be possible. 

Calling the Church Office - Dial "0"

Next time you call the church office, you may notice a new recording. The office receives several calls each day from those looking for Miriam's and we are trying this new system to redirect those callers more quickly. Every caller will hear this message, even if Shenella is in the office. To get to Shenella or her voicemail, simply dial "0".

Staff Contacts

  • The Rev. Cunningham will be on vacation Aug 13-25. Please contact the church office in case of pastoral emergencies. The Rev. Molina-Moore will be the pastor on call.
  • Wanda Fuller will be in the office while Shenella McGaskey is on vacation Aug. 15-21.
