Dayspring's Happy Helpers Make Lunches for Chase Community Shelter in Rockville
On the 3rd weekend of each month, Dayspring's Happy Helpers make bagged lunches, and fellowship together. From April-October, the Dayspring youth use their Sunday school time to prepare lunches for 60 men. In other months the numbers soar to 120. Occasionally, Saturday gatherings are held instead, giving our youth and adults an opportunity to work together in assembling the bags. SSL Hours are available. We hope you'll join us at the Farmhouse. All are welcome!

Winter Solstice Ceremony December 20, 2014
Have you ever felt called to come together in ceremony to give thanks for the many beautiful aspects of the natural world and to formally recognize entering back into the time of increasing light? If so, you are invited to be part of a peaceful Winter Solstice Ceremony at Dayspring Church to be held the day before Winter Solstice. We will meet at the Farmhouse at 6:45pm and then walk in silence through the grass and forest to the hill-top fire circle. Once there, we will share in a time of silence, prayer of gratitude, and a voluntary smudging ceremony; all followed by cookies and cider to celebrate. Children are very welcome. For questions or to let us know you’ll be coming (so I know how many cookies to bring), please contact: wendy.duke@comcast.net Open the contact tab for directions and public transportation info.
