MIND needs YOU!
Memorial is proud to host the Methodists In New Directions general meeting on Sunday, May 3 at 2:30, and there's no better place to be! Why? Most importantly, meeting with like-minded United Methodists is a big shot in the arm during a time when rampant oppressive tactics are being deployed against our movement in the United Methodist Church. This is all to say, WE HAVE WORK TO DO and every last one of us needs to share in the work.
The power of the collective is the most critical component of MIND’s successes in the past. We have stared down many challenges over the years which would not have been possible had we not stood together. When we show up in force, when our voice is so loud that it drowns out the voices against us, when we are able to mobilize on a moment’s notice—that’s what makes us so powerful. None of us alone could do what all of us can do together.
Please plan to be there and invite a friend. We continue to work hard to ensure that our annual conference is a welcoming place for all LGBTQ Methodists.

Typically, ten items are delivered to the home- bound patron approximately every six weeks.Please contact the Homebound Services Librarian at 914-422-1485 if you would like to join this program or have any questions about this service.
