Please prayerfully consider what you might be willing to contribute.


Vespers on Sunday, May 27th (with updated info!): Our monthly Vespers meeting and meal will take place on Sunday, May 27th in the Beth Ahabah auditorium immediately after the service. The members of the Uganda missions team will host this event and provide dinner, so no need to bring a dish--but the team will be taking donations to go towards the funds they need to make the trip. The finance team will also give a brief presentation on our 2012-2013 FY budget during this meeting.
