Women’s Bible Study - Wednesday, 10:00 am through June 27

Pastor Kim will be offering a class on the Matriarchs of the Bible. We will study Eve, Sarah, Hagar and Rebekah.

June Gratitude Gift is Navajo Lutheran Mission  
The Navajo Lutheran Mission, in partnership with the Navajo People and rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, is a community seeking to meet the educational, health, social and spiritual needs of the Navajo People. Our June Gratitude Gifts will go to help the school and church fulfill their mission in the Rock Point community. Approximately 3,000 people live on the land in family clans. Food and medical services are more than 50 miles away and general shopping requires traveling 115 miles to New Mexico. The mission campus provides a charter school for 70 students in K-6th grade, a health clinic and an ELCA congregation. The school offers a Core Knowledge curriculum that incorporates not only the basics but also stresses art, drama, music and health and wellness. The “Wellness Center” provides basic health care to residents who find it difficult to travel the distance to see a doctor. “House of Prayer” is the congregation located on the mission campus. It was established in 1965 within the American Lutheran Church and is now a member of the ELCA and an active cross-cultural ministry of the Grand Canyon Synod.
