Don Johnson Memorial Fund – You’re invited to make a memorial contribution to help cover the costs of Don Johnson's cremation. This congregation, taking its lead from Tommy Bugg, has held Don in prayer and included him in the life of Edgehill for over twenty years leading up to his execution.  If you'd like to contribute please make checks payable to Edgehill with Don Johnson's name in the reference line.  The cost is approximately $900 and your gifts no matter how small will help. We stand against the death penalty and all aspects of our criminal justice system that denies the sacred worth of any person. 


Prayer Shawls Available for Congregation and Loved Ones

    “Grief and resilience live together” -- Michelle Robinson Obama

Edgehill Knitters continues to place hand knitted and sometimes crocheted Prayer Shawls on the prayer rail in the Big Room.  As we create the shawls, we pray for the person who will wrap themselves in the shawl, asking God for healing, for wholeness, for shalom, for that person's highest good.  We welcome you to pick up a prayer shawl for yourself or for a loved one who needs healing and pray that it will be a blessing as you build resilience.
