Dan Shares About Youth Conference

Dan Nuckols from St. Andrews UMC went ot a Youth Conference. Whwn he returned he shared the following with the congregation about the experience and what he and his friends were led to do.

Recently the youth group from Cornerstone Church of Christ went to a Christian youth conference at Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee called Christ In Youth: Move (CIY). While there, our attention was brought to the water crisis in Zambia, Africa.

An organization called Active Water is working to bring safe drinking water to the families of Zambia by building each family a sand filter. The sand filters cost $75 each. CIY par...tnered with Active Water this year to produce and film a short movie about this crisis, called Zambia’s Song.

On September 26, 2010 at 7 p.m. we will be hosting a benefit at the Gretna Theatre to raise money to buy sand filters. Local artists will come out and perform, and we will also show the film Zambia’s Song that runs for about 20 minutes. Please come and support our mission to help the people of Zambia, Africa.

For further information please contact the theater at 434-656-3377 or get in touch with one of us through Facebook.

God Bless.
