Dear all,

Important community support information: 

  • Opportunity to Support Mt. Zion Baptist Church, Carol Kuhre (a member of Christ Lutheran Church), and some harding working film makers by purchasing tickets to see  Legacy: Women of Southeast Ohio, a series of documentary films highlighting the accomplishments of four Southeastern Ohio women, of whom Carol Kuhre is one.  The premier will take place on Friday, Aug. 27th at 7 p.m. at Stuart's Opera House.  Tickets range in price from free to $50. Ticket sale proceeds will be donated to the Mt. Zion Baptist Church Preservation Society. Other viewing dates are available.  In addition to Carol, the film also features: Ada Woodson Adams, local historian, civil rights activist and former President and co-founder of the Multicultural Genealogical Center in Chesterhill,  Dr. Francine Childs, Professor Emerita of African American Studies at Ohio University, civil rights and social justice activist, and Dr. Dru Riley Evarts, Professor Emerita, Scripps Journalism School at Ohio University, and three time Ohio University Alumna.  
  • The following is from our friend Ursel, whom many of you might remember:  Dear friends, you might be interested in this urgent appeal for the Tent of Nations, a family owned farm located in the southwest hills of Bethlehem which is owned and operated by the Nassar family. The land is not only an active farm but a dedicated space for peace and reconciliation work.
  • Ready for a (Virtual) Service Trip to Montaña de Luz?
    Have you always wanted to go on a service trip to Montaña de Luz or go back again? Because of
    conditions in Honduras during the pandemic, service trips are not feasible, but the MdL Board is offering a Virtual Service Trip through this September. Those who sign up will have weekly to watch presentations from the youth and staff, along with recipes, songs from chapel, and pregunta del dia (Questions of the Day). At the end of the month trip members can attend a virtual fiesta with youth and staff in Honduras. If you’re interested, contact Doug Debrick, or 740-707-4054.

Here's what's happening this week:
