A special Adult Education class will be held next Sunday June 23, at 9 am in the Dining Room. Dr. Dorcas Dah—the first woman to get a PhD in Theology in Burkina Faso, and recent speaker at Tumekutana—will join us to tell about her personal story, as well as the ministry she is involved with now involving education for girls and women. Dr. Dah is author of the book “Women Do More Work than Men”, which teaches about the spread of the gospel in West Africa. Coffee and light refreshments will be served. All are welcome!
FPCE member Verna Todd spent a year photographing the strength and beauty that God reveals in a single amaryllis. This exhibit is on display through June 30 at Perspective Gallery, 1310 Chicago Ave., just a block south of the church. Verna will be speaking about the work at the gallery on June 20 at 7 pm. Regular gallery hours are Noon to 6 pm Thursdays through Saturdays, and Noon to 5 pm Sundays. All proceeds will go to our FPCE sister church in Bethlehem, Palestine.
Please pray for the FPCE group visiting the Holy Land now through June 19. Not only are they visiting many of the historic sites, but the group will also take part in a concentrated time of study with Rev. Dr. Munther Isaac and other leaders of Christmas Lutheran Church, our sister church in Bethlehem. Pray that those on the trip and the hosts would discern what a true sister church relationship might look like. The team will also be spending time with Rev. Dr. Mitri Raheb, President of another FPCE partner, Dar al Kalima University of the Arts. Ask that the Lord would strengthen bonds of peace and friendship through this visit, and deepen the lives of all those involved as followers of Jesus together.
