You do not want to miss this celebration of Trinity Sunday, the last time our Adult Choir will sing until fall this year.

As you know, Ecuador has experienced a horrible earthquake. We are in touch with Cameron Vivanco and family. They are fine (thanks be to God!) but many of their friends and coworkers have experienced losses. Education = Hope will be sending out a special appeal to provide scholarships for children who have been displaced by the earthquake. In the meantime, Cameron suggests that we support Extreme Response.
Extreme Response are friends of E=H, and we know they are trustworthy. Here is the link below to support their efforts.
Please be on the lookout for our new initiative for children affected by the earthquake.
