Members and friends of our congregation were recently asked to select a local agency to be the recipient of our annual Pentecost Offering. Your votes have been counted, and the winner is…..too close to call! As a result, your Pentecost gifts will be shared equally by the Center for Safety & Change (formerly Rockland Family Shelter), Nyack Center and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Multipurpose Center in Spring Valley. All three organizations work to support families and nurture children in our community. What a great way to let our Pentecost spirit shine in the community! It’s not too late to give!
