Youth Group Dinner Coordinator... The dinner coordinator will set up parents and members of the congregation to make dinner for the youth on Sunday evenings (and for several other special events). The coordinator will work with Alisa to make a signup sheet and bulletin board to post at the Information Station for signups (or a Signup Genius online). The coordinator will make sure the spots are filled and if necessary make phone calls to fill the slots. Each week, the coordinator will email and/or call the person making dinner to send them the information and remind them that it is their week to cook. Please pray about this opportunity and let Alisa Laska know if you are interested: HopeJoyFaith05@aol.com, 703-451-4442.Continue Reading »

Thank you to all who helped make our Nablus women's delegation feel welcomed and loved! Our guests had a great time, and they felt loved and cared for. They will take this love back home to their families, church, and suffering land. Grace was enriched by their presence, which allowed us to take another important step in deepening our friendship with our partners. ~Sharron and Liz
