On August 27 our church will host Rev. Scott Parker, Associate for Ecumenical Partnerships, based in Beirut, Lebanon. He and his wife, Rev. Elmarie Parker, serve as PCUSA mission co-workers for Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. Scott launched a website, findaworld.org, in 2015 with the purpose of engaging church members in the U.S. with people in the Middle East caught up in the Syrian civil war. The Parkers have been very helpful in advising our response to specific needs for refugee relief donations.
Scott will participate in morning worship at 9:30 a.m. with a Moment for Mission. Following the service, there will be a 20 min slide presentation in the MPR (and light lunch) with opportunity for questions. Scott will update us on what God is doing in Syria and Iraq as local churches and individuals experience hope while they begin to recover with the aid of international assistance. Please join us!
