Come, celebrate Summer with Agape Spiritual Community!  We usually have a picnic at Auburndale Cove in August.  This year, we are gathering virtually for our picnic.  Here's how:  Prepare your favorite summer food and bring it to our virtual gathering, you will have time to show it off in front of the camera! We will talk about your favorite summer recipes, what memories food holds for us, and how Jesus used food to bring people together. We might even play a virtual game or two. Don't miss this fun and yummy gathering featuring food and friends.
 
 
Complete!!
Thanks to you, we exceeded our goal of 25 Nalgene Bottles for Chaplains on the Way, helping our unhoused neighbors in Waltham.  The bottles were distributed in July, and contained many items that will help folks stay safe during the pandemic.
Thank You for your generosity!
