Being a disciple is all about learning how to love God and love your neighbor. Every week during communion we pray to God, “that we may be, for the world, the Body of Christ, redeemed by his blood.” We’ve got two great opportunities to put your love of neighbor into action this month!
The first is a picnic at Bessie Estelle Park on Saturday, Sept. 20 from 2-7 PM. Bring a potluck dish, lawn chairs, and/or a yard game. The second is Magic City Miracle, on Sunday, September 28. Saint Junia is sponsoring several projects around the city. You can sign up for both of these events below.
Picnic at Bessie Estelle Park
Saint Junia and Church of the Reconciler are partnering to host a picnic this Saturday, September 20, from 2-7 PM. We’ll meet at Bessie Estelle Park, at 901 8th Avenue S. Here is a map.

Dave is building a wiffle ball launcher for the occasion. 50 mph top speed. Yeah, baby!
Magic City Miracle is Here!
More than a thousand people volunteered for last year’s Magic City Miracle, and we’re looking at doing it again this year. Even cooler is that 10% of the people who participated were not affiliated with a church. We invite everyone to join in what God is already doing!
Saint J is sponsoring projects at four sites around the city: Girls, Inc., Ruffner Mountain, Magic City AIDS Walk, and Social Venture in Woodlawn. You can sign up online here (though not all the projects are listed yet).
There are already 900 people signed up. Sign up soon if you want a T-shirt, and invite a friend!
