Pastor Scott, Deacon Barbara, and a few other church members attended the PRHeSS (Pan-African Health Education & Social Services) “walk-a-thon” this past Saturday, July 14th. Unfortunately, due to rain we weren’t able to march in support of PRHeSS’ work to offer medical and other social services to approximately 100,000 people who live in a rural area of Sierra Leone. We made the best of the morning by instead having a “talk-a-thon” in which Dr. Samuel Kormoi, MD (founder of PRHeSS) shared how his nonprofit had its start, and the many social justice issues impacting Sierra Leone. We all walked away remarking that we learned a lot and are more passionate about helping PRHeSS achieve its goals.
Please join us on Sunday, July 1 to welcome our new pastor, Rev. Scott S. Himel. Rev. Himel is succeeding Rev. Glenna Olumstad who retires at the end of June.
