You are invited to come for our free community meal on Tuesday, September 27th at 6 PM and to stay to hear our special speaker this month. Dr. Belinda Forbes is a dentist and missionary with the General Board of Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church. She is serving in Managua, Nicaragua with Accion Medica Cristiana (Christian Medical Action). Dr. Forbes will be able to tell us about her work with AMC in impoverished rural areas and will have some photos for us to see. This is an awesome opportunity for our church and our community to learn about the missionary that we help to support.
If you would like to read more about Dr. Forbes you may read her profile on the Global Ministries website.
Please enjoy today’s Worship Service. We really enjoyed the hymn sing with lots of our old favorites. Hope you do to. And stay tuned until the end to hear a bit about our missionary Dr. Belinda Forbes who will be speaking this week at Hope’s Place.
