The Stones Cry Out: The Story of the Palestinian Christians

Fellowship Breakfast — February 12, 2019, at 8 a.m.

Christians have lived continuously throughout the Middle East for 2000 years. They’re the descendants of those early followers of Christ. Yet few are aware of their continuing existence there. It’s important that people understand the living aspect of Christianity in Palestine. That it’s composed not only of the “dead stones” of archeological sites, but of living people, practices, resistance to occupation, and steadfast hope.

The Church of the Palm’s Social Justice Team will sponsor the February Fellowship Breakfast. Using a recent video, we’ll focus on both the history and present of Palestinian Christians. In addition, Beth Moore will provide an update on the Nassar families international peace work at the Tent of Nations – outside of Bethlehem.

Please join us. Sign up in the narthex or call the church office if you will attend the breakfast.

Souper Bowl Silver Ladle Challenge

In 2017 we entered into a competition with our sister church, United Church of Sun City. The contest was simple: collect the most soup – cans, ramen, etc.

In the name of love, we crushed them that year. Last year, in a close race, we let them win; It was the neighborly thing to do. Now it is our turn to reclaim the Silver Ladle!

Bring cans of soup, ramen cases, anything with you each Sunday in January. All donations go to Valley View Food Bank.
