Support for Isaac Barrantine





December 21, 2017

Friends and Family,

We come to you humbly. Isaac G. Barrantine, Sr., has lived his dream and vision of helping and feeding the homeless for over 16 years, “one plate at a time” and from that vision, 2 Li’l Fishes Free Lunch Program has helped to feed hundreds of people on the north side of Chicago weekly.

For the past two years, Isaac has been dealing with health problems, but continued to greet people and coordinate the 2 Li’l Fishes Program.

On September 19, 2017, Isaac suffered three heart attacks and major organ failures, which has led to many complications. Isaac was hospitalized for three months and has just returned home from the Schwab Rehabilitation Hospital to continue his long road to recovery. This ordeal has taken a major toll – mentally, physically, and most importantly, financially on the family.

Currently, any financial help would be greatly appreciated so that Isaac can continue this recovery. The Peoples Church of Chicago has established a restricted fund for Isaac G. Barrantine, Sr., to which you all may donate. Please click here or at the link above to donate with a debit or credit card or through PayPal.

Things that may be donated for Isaac to use at home as he continues his recovery include such items as a hospital bed, wheelchair, wheelchair lift or ramp to enter the house, and other home health items.

Any help is greatly appreciated and would help assist Isaac in his continuing recovery and in working to keep his vision of 2 Li’l Fishes vibrant.

Thank you and may God bless!

Second Friday Coffeehouse, July 14th at 7:30 pm with Rebecca Jasso

Join us this Friday, July 14th at 7:30 pm for an evening of music and good eats! 

Chicago native Rebecca Jasso is a singer/songwriter who playfully writes around the themes of love, loneliness, and fantasy, skillfully weaving her melodies into the harmonic fabric of her fingerstyle guitar playing.?

A visual artist, Rebecca conjures images with her lyrics to insert you into pictures from her own imagination. From soft, autumnal landscapes, to dark, Narnian scenes, each song is a journey into a new story. Her honest voice and beautiful songs will absolutely charm you.

 

Reading the Bible with the Eyes of the Poor

For the next three Sundays, join Pastor Susan as she leads us in looking at several significant passages from the Bible as a way to see if we can hear the way the peasant followers of Jesus heard these messages:

11:30 a.m. at The Coffee Hour

June 11, 2017–Jeremiah 22:13-17  “To Know God”

June 18, 2017–Luke 1:46-55  “Mary’s Song”

June 25, 2017–Luke 4:16-30  “Good News to the Poor”

Come to the stage area where we will gather in a circle.  All are welcome!!

Pennies from Heaven Fundraising for 2 Li’l Fishes Lunch Program

https://www.generosity.com/community-fundraising/pennies-from-heaven-for-2-li-l-fishes–2

We call this “Pennies from Heaven” because we asked our members and friends to bring in that jar, that bag of pennies and other coins that’s been accumulating on their dresser to help us raise money for our 2 Li’l Fishes lunch program.  Every penny counts!

Summertime?  People don’t tend to think of people going hungry at this time of year.  But even though the weather is beautiful, there are still people who struggle to get enough to eat.

Thanks for your support!
