9 a.m. – Forum Discussion Group – Lower Level-Forum Room/Library
Peggy Placier will speak on the Community Bail fund established by Race Matters, Friends. “We bail out of the Boone County Jail detainees who are Boone County residents with Boone County charges. We pay 100% of bail up to $3,000. We also provide clients with rides, court information, and reminders of court dates. When a case is completed, eventually we receive a partial refund (minus fines and fees) from the Circuit Clerk. This fund has raised money and used it to help release some people from our local jail. In this way they can return to work or other activities while they await trial.”
9 a.m. – Mindfulness Meditation – Fire Circle or Lower Level-Centering Room
Mindfulness Meditation takes place at 9 a.m. every Sunday. Beginners and experienced meditators welcome. If the outside temperature is 55 degrees or higher and weather permits, meditation will take place at the fire circle behind the church. Otherwise, meditation will be in the Centering Room. For more information, email Anna Lingo or Susan Pereira.
