Headlines & Sunday Announcements

ROOM IN THE INN RETURNS TO WAREHOUSE

Sundays, January through March

During the Winter months, Warehouse 242 engages with Room in the Inn as we seek to provide our most vulnerable neighbors with food and a warm place to stay with dignity.  There are ways for small groups as well as individuals to get involved.  From providing meals as an open table experience, sharing in each other’s stories wherever natural, to picking up supplies, to spending the night, there are opportunities for anyone.  Join us in providing radical hospitality on Sunday nights.  Sign up HERE. For more details or questions,  email Kristin Randles.

WAREHOUSE TALKS

Tuesday, February 6 @ 6:30pm

Dominique Gilliard will be the keynote speaker at February’s Warehouse Talks event. The theme is “Locked in Solidarity – Responding to Mass Incarceration.” We’ll have a panel discussion featuring voices of folks who have been directly impacted by mass incarceration. There will be Jazz music from Greg Jarrel and refreshments will be provided by Toucan Louie’s.

Doors open at 6:30pm, so come out early to enjoy refreshments from Toucan Louie’s while listening to some excellent live Jazz music from Greg Jarrel.

We will not be offering childcare for this event, so go ahead and plan accordingly. This event is open to everyone, so please spread the word!

ASH WEDNESDAY

Wednesday, February 14 @ 7pm

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, a season in which we come to terms with our brokenness and long for the beauty of resurrection. This year, artist, educator, and activist Steve Prince will be leading us to reflect and join the movement from lament to celebration, from dirge to second line, that not only marks the journey of following Jesus, but also finds artistic expression in New Orleans jazz and Prince’s own visual compositions. Anyone is welcome to this evening of art, music, contemplation, and longing.

To learn more about Steve Prince and his work, read more of his biography, view this short documentary, and browse a gallery of his work.

Childcare for infants – preschool will be available.
