May Random Act of Kindness

Mission Happens at Maxwell Street!

The Nest – Diaper Derby in May!

The Random Acts of Kindness project for May is a Diaper Derby for The Nest.  The Nest provides struggling families with basic childcare supplies and referrals to local assistance programs.  Basic necessities for young children include Diapers & Wipes.  The Nest is particularly short of wipes, as well as diapers for newborns and older toddlers, sizes 4, 5 and 6.  Please bring diapers and wipes to the church office for The Nest in May!  

June Random Act of Kindness

Mission Happens at Maxwell Street!

Pride Festival – Leis and Mardi Gras beads!

The Random Acts of Kindness project for June is a project in conjunction with the Social Justice Committee and PRIDE. June is an important month to affirm, celebrate, and love on our queer community members. Our queer community is an important part of Maxwell Street, and we are blessed to continue to learn from queer folks how to make the freedom and futures God envisions for our world. This year has been particularly challenging for trans community members in Kentucky and the United States as legislatures threaten the safety, healthcare, and social belonging of trans people. In past years, Maxwell Streeters have handed out leis and water bottles at Lexington’s Pride celebration. This year Pride is in the Central Bank Center, and we are not allowed to give away food or water.

The Mission and Social Justice Committees are asking congregation members to bring brightly colored leis and Mardi Gras beads (any color or rainbow). Our table will also give away Pride stickers and information about Maxwell Street. Please bring your donations to the church office before June 23, 2023. We also need volunteers to staff our table at Pride.
