Urban Promise Visit
Beginning April 1, 2018
Once again the young people from Urban Promise will be visiting us during their Spring Break. This group comes to us from Wilmington, Delaware and our connection with them stems from one of our former church youth, Bethany Wolstenhome Gregor, who mentors and ministers to these inner city youth. If you are interested in providing food or support for their upcoming visit, please sign up in the Narthex at the church or contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Living Waters for the World in the Yucatan
In conjunction with Living Waters of the World, members of our congregation were trained to assemble and install water purification systems. This work was usually a two-year project that included construction of a building in the first year. This was followed by installation of water purification equipment and education about using clean water during the second year Each year Bible school was held for the children. To date, we have installed three water plants. We maintain a relationship with these villages by conducting yearly visits and communicating via social media.
