JOINING HANDS, JOINING VOICES:
Facing Our Hungers Together

"Joining Hands, Joining Voices" brings five urban congregations
together in a concert and service project to celebrate our shared
ministries. Grammy-nominated organist Jan Kraybill leads
members of these churches in an online musical event Saturday,

May 1 at 2 p.m. We invite THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY to support

one ... or all ... of the projects noted below. By ‘joining together,’

we will have a greater impact on those who are most in need.
