Clergy Statement

This statement was drafted by the Anti-Racism/Pro-Reconciliation Team of the Ohio Region of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and signed onto by nearly 60 Disciples clergy in Ohio! It is in support of #BlackLivesMatter and #DefundThePolice. Please take a moment to read and reflect.

Face Mask Donation Drive

Here’s an opportunity for neighbors to help neighbors during the COVID-19 crisis. To help slow the spread in our community, the City is organizing a weekly face mask donation drive in order to improve access to masks in Shaker. Residents are invited to donate homemade or store-bought masks on Fridays outside the Stephanie Tubbs Jones Community Building (3450 Lee Rd.) anytime between 9 am and 5 pm (the Community Building remains closed, but there will be a bin near the main doors). Masks will be distributed to Shaker-based organizations to provide to residents who need them. 
Interested in making masks at home? Find easy-to-follow directions at the CDC website (https://bit.ly/CDC-instructions). If you have questions or need fabric, contact Colin Compton at colin.compton@shakeronline.com.

Prayer Walk Now Available

You are invited to the HCC grounds for a self-guided prayer walk anytime! There are 5 stations set up with signs, themes, and sample prayers. You may visit one or all in any order, whenever you want to pray. Pictures of each station are posted on our RenewalWorks page (under the “Grow” tab). Enjoy!

If you meet others on the Prayer Walk, please be mindful of social distancing. Thank you!

If you have questions or comments about the Prayer Walk, contact Kate Gillooly at Kate@HeightsCC.org.
