On Sunday, August 11, our fellowship time will feature ice cream sundaes served by members of your youth group. In return, our youth will be accepting donations to raise money for the Put the Guns Down Block Party being organized by lay pastor Lana Bolds of City of Refuge UCC and the Visions of Hope Project. Envisioned by Pastor Bolds as “an outpouring of love” for the community, this event on September 7 at DeFremery Park in Oakland will offer youth and families of the community food, raffle prizes, books, games, and a treasure hunt—all at no cost. Funds raised will go to Pastor Bolds to purchase the supplies she needs to allow them to serve as many youth as possible.
This event served as the service project for the recent NCNC UCC Annual Gathering.
To donate to this service project, contact Pastor Todd.
