Ghana Thanksgiving Service - Sunday, Aug. 31
This special service was organized by Jean Mutara, former refugee from Krisan Sanzule, to praise God for his blessings and to thank Webster Church in-person for all that was done, in 10 years of involvement, for the refugees who resided at Krisan Sanzule, the UNHCR refugee camp. Mutara and the Rev. LaVerne M. Gill will be guest speakers. An African song will be taught and there will be a drummer during the service. An ALL CHURCH PICNIC on Jennings Rd. immediately follows the service. An entrée of chicken and rice will be provided by the hosts. All other Websterites are asked to bring a dish to pass. We will have more song, dance and joy after our blessing and meal. In the event of rain, we will meet in the Fellowship Hall.
Reverend Gill is the author of Faith and Kidney Disease: Prayers, Meditations and Spiritual Disciplines for People with Kidney Disease and she served as Pastor at Webster from 1999 to 2008. Jean Mutara, R.N., was the camp clinic nurse for seven years at the Krisan Sanzule camp in Ghana. He, his wife and children now live in Chicago.
