Happening at Amicable...
January 26 - February 10
We will kick off the food drive during worship on Sunday, January 26. All are invited to bring non-perishable food items to share with those in the community who are food insecure. Bins are available throughout Tiverton and food can also be dropped off at Amicable. All donations will be shared with the food pantries at East Bay Community Action Project (EBCAP) and Old Stone/First Baptist Church.
Homeless Awareness Overnight at Amicable!
Saturday, February 1, 2020, 7:00 p.m.
For the past (20 years!), Amicable's youth and chaperones have volunteered to sleep outside in a cardboard box to experience the physical effects of homelessness. Our youth welcome donations from sponsors. All funds raised will go purchasing necessity items for homeless awareness kits, which will be given to individuals when shelters close at the end of March. Other available funds will be donated to the First Step Inn in Fall River, a program providing safe shelter and meals to at least 20 people daily.
Speak to our youth or chaperones at coffee hour after church to give a donation, or contact the church office at (401) 624-4611. In recognition of 20 years, perhaps consider a donation of $20.
Amicable Church is hosting a book group at the Tiverton Public Library on the third Wednesday of each month at 2:00 p.m. The theme is "Spirituality and Politics" with the goal of encouraging conversations about faith and politics. The January discussion will be held on Wednesday, February 19, 2:00 p.m., at the Tiverton Public Library. Those interested are asked to read "Finding Chika" by Mitch Albom. Copies are available at the library.
It is our hope that by hosting this book group at the Tiverton Library, people who may have been hurt by the church community of their youth or distanced themselves from church completely, may find a spiritual community connection and begin to see church as different from what they experienced and find a way back to a faith community.
