Circle of Hope team at the Lupus Loop

October 27th:
Lupus Loop 2019


The Lupus Loop is a 5K run and 2.5 mile walk that Circle of Hope has been participating in for many years. It is an important community event because it raises funds to improve the quality of life for all people affected by lupus through programs of research, education, support and advocacy. Lupus is an unpredictable and misunderstood disease in which the immune system is out of balance, causing damage to any organ system in the body.

November 2nd:
Village Parenting Day

29 West Tulpehocken St
Philadelphia, PA 19144

Facebook event here.

Village Parenting Day is an opportunity to share our vision with those in the church who haven’t quite realized how amazing this is, and to share our alternative ideas with those who might like to join. We are undoing the isolation that parents feel. Our children need more love than just two people (or one) can give. Let’s celebrate that and lean into it. Let’s dream new ways to express it.
