  2. World Welcome Volunteer Gathering

    World Welcome volunteers are invited to gather for pizza,  to look each other in the eye, and to share our joys, concerns, needs, questions or suggestions.
    So – we are going to meeting on Sunday, Oct 25th, after church at Hope Chapel Family room.  We’ll meet at 12 and we’ll provide pizza for all (or breakfast tacos… not sure yet).
    Please do RSVP Nance (nancefriedman@gmail.com) so we know how much food to order and we hope and look forward to seeing you all there!
