Painting Party

Saturday, January 25th, 9am-3pm

Join us in putting sweat equity into our new rooms in the building. We will be priming (and painting?) walls from 9am to 3pm. Sign up to come for whatever length of time you can.

Bring paint a-frame or step ladders, roller frames and extenders, roller trays and paint brushes if you have them. (Please clearly label all tools you bring.) We will have drop cloths, roller covers and the paint. 


Volunteering with RAIHN

February 2nd-9th

Artisan is again partnering with New Hope Free Methodist to support their congregation as they host families with RAIHN (Rochester Area Interfaith Hospitality Network). New Hope’s next host week is February 2nd through the 9th. Please consider signing up for a couple of shifts, if your schedule allows. Guests appreciate the familiar faces, and volunteers also find it more meaningful to develop relationships through the week. Sign up to help here. See a Jeanne Proctor for more info.

Borderlands Support

through February 2nd

Join the Social Justice Team in supporting refugees and our missionaries, Catherine Burke and Michael Brennan, at the El Paso, Texas, border. For the next few weeks there will be several opportunities to show our support.

During Sunday services we will be participating in the Butterfly Effect: Migration is Beautiful Project by making butterflies. These will be displayed at Artisan and then sent on to our representatives in DC to show our solidarity with families at the border.

"creating 76,020 butterflies to stand in solidarity with the 76,020 migrant children detained at the border last year"

We are also collecting new underwear and socks for women and children. The mission is also in need of tote bags as people come with nothing and then often leave with some clothing and toiletries so we are collecting tote bags as well (such as Wegmans shopping bags).

You can donate to the Annunciation House which helps Catherine and Michael in their work with refugees.
