Longing to Give

Our theme for November is “the gift of generosity,” which implies that generosity isn’t just about giving but also about what we receive when we engage in giving.  This morning, we’ll explore the transformative nature of generosity and the human desire to give.

Our Sacred Breath Choir will be singing live today.

  • The Share the Plate recipient for Sunday 11/5/2023 and 11/12/2023 is the Goodman Community Center Thanksgiving Basket Drive.

    For decades the Goodman Community Center has been providing families with everything they need to make a traditional Thanksgiving meal at home. They started by serving several hundred families. This year they will serve four thousand.

    Goodman’s CEO Letesha Nelson will be speaking at Reeb on November 19th for our Sunday Service – “The Connectedness Generosity Provides.”
