We're having a Backside tonight at 7.  If you play music, tell stories, read poetry, recite monologues, make short films, take pictures, paint pictures, bake stuff---you get the idea--we'd love to have you share something with us.  If you are interested in participating in Backside, email

St Francis Liturgy

This Thursday, October 4th, is the feast day of St. Francis, and we’ll be having a liturgy in the Backside to commemorate this day. We’ll be using the life and words of St. Francis as a lens through which to direct our attention to God, and to reflect on what it is to be formed in the way of Christ. We’ll begin at 5:30.

Youth Fund Raiser

Hey, Order of the Phoenix here letting you know that this Sunday 9/30 is our annual youth lunch fundraiser! For the last three years this event has been a crucial source of funding for our group, and has allowing us to do things I never thought we could in our first year or so as a group. This money is used to help take us to Camp Eagle and CBF’s Passport as well as local retreats and special events. This Sunday we will be serving Tacos with meat, lettuce, and cheese as well as chips and salsa. We will also have a black bean option for our vegan friends. You can eat with us in the backside or take it to go. The suggested donation is $5 a plate (two tacos), and we will gladly accept cash, credit, or check!
