And we are entertaining the possibility of serving ice cream (using the MCC sale machine): please talk to me if you're interested in helping serve.


DR CONGO PARTY - Invitations have been sent out to people in the area with DR Congo connections for our May 25 DR Congo party.  Plans are still coming together, but we will have lunch and an informal gathering of fellowship and fun with pastor Francois Mukendi (who will be visiting from Kinshasa). Please put it on your calendars... more information on what to bring/how to help will be shared soon.
