SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 6TH , 2020 - Join us for morning worship at 10:00 – Rev. Katherine McCloskey leading.

MISSION CAPSULE: In Afghanistan, cultural norms dictate that men often play a more central role in public life, while women and girls have more significant roles in the home. Because of his, many girls do not have equal access to education. PWS&D, with the support of local partners, has been working to provide girls with access to high quality education. Through summer camps, girls are informed about human rights, gender, sex and support. And so much more!

As we encourage and equip one another and teach about love, faith and hope, we are proclaiming the good news of the gospel.

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 7th, 2020 - Theology on Tap is not meeting again until next week September 14th, 2020 - when we will begin our new book “ Jesus and John Wayne” by Kristen Kobes Du Mez.

NOTE: As you might have heard by now, the Federal Government has given approval for sponsored refugees to travel to Canada. After we have proven sponsorship Hasan and his family will be free to come. It could be six days, six weeks or six months, but it’s happening.
