Feeling 2022?
Greetings!

Just like that trending TikTok video, I'm feeling 2022!

Despite the setbacks of the holiday Omicron surge, Americans continue to be filled with cautious optimism in this new year.

After nearly 24 months of fits and starts, 2022 has GOT-to-be the year we totally return back-to-life (fix it Jesus).

This is the year, we can all dig deep into our goals and resolutions.
Some of the top resolutions include diet and exercise. Others are related to personal growth and finances.
But what if we all resolved to spend more quality time with the family or give back to the community?

This Sunday, I invite you and your family to resolve to gather together and make a difference in our downtown community.

Community Meal
12 noon Sunday, January 6

Read more below about how to volunteer to serve and enjoy a meal with the hungry or unsheltered this weekend.

It's your season!

Here's to a simple, January fresh start.

Happy New Year,

Pilgrimage to Montgomery

Join The Justice Team as we "March Fourth" to The National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, AL.

We plan is to charter a bus and book a two-night hotel stay near The Equal Justice Initiative headquarters which manages both The Memorial and The Legacy Museum.

During our time at The Memorial, we'll officially deliver the soil from the Robert Johnson memorial ceremony previously hosted at The Portico.

For more information on how to join The Justice Team or our trip to Montgomery, contact Chalette@theportico.org.
