All-Church Barbecue

Making tortillasJoin us next Sunday, October 6th, when we welcome our visitors from Guatemala. The five women from the UPAVIM cooperative will be sharing their personal stories during each worship service and selling their beautiful crafts in the Parlor. The sales of these crafts help finance their school, daycare, clinic, laboratory, bakery and soy milk production making a difference in the lives of many in their impoverished community on the outskirts of Guatemala City.

After the 11 o’clock worship service we invite everyone to an all-church barbecue where our own chef extraordinaire, Don Safford, will be cooking for us. To help us anticipate the amount of glorious food needed, you may sign up by email  or call the church office. We will enjoy fellowship with one another and our friends from UPAVIM and they may even demonstrate a traditional Guatemalan dance.

Other opportunities to meet with the women are posted on the church website. We plan to take them to the North-South Football game on Friday night and to the Wednesday evening family meal.
