A Reminder that “Give Away the Plate Has Changed” — rather than selecting one charity or non-profit at the end of the month, we now give half of all of our non-pledge income for the entire month to a selected non-profit.
For the month of July 2018 , we have chosen RAICES (Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services).
We are breaking with our usual custom of choosing a local non-profit due to the RAICES campaign to reunite the families separated at the border and their offer of a bond check of $20 million to release all the mothers of the 2500 immigrant children who were separated from their parents.
Founded in 1986, RAICES provides free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees in Texas.
Summer fun activities for children and youth are offered during the 11:00 AM service. This week’s summer fun is crafts and games with Kayla and Jax.
A newcomer information session will immediately follow the service — childcare provided.
