We have collected nearly $1150 towards our $1900 goal. We have to collect the funds, send them to LeCAU (Legal and Charitable Aid Uganda) and get the roof done before the rainy season. The school has only half a roof and the children have to crowd into the remaining part of the building, which is a terrible way to have to learn. The Deacons’ March collections will also go towards it. If you want to donate baked goods for the sale, please contact Janet Brown or the church office.

Message from Ngamije:
With your financial support from all of you and especial support from RMPC, I am some of the pictures LECAU took. We served over 30 families (approximate 378 people). Distribution of the Christmas package was carried out at the Wilson’s hut and at LECAU’s office. It was a great moment of joy since it was the first time we distributed meat of three goats, rice, clean bottled drinking water and rice plus spices. Thank you so much for the helping hand, it was a fantastic Christmas eve indeed. Thanks
This year the choir offered a cantata “The Messiah – Then and Now.” with music of W.A. Mozart and G.F. Handel. We featured soloist Henry Wilson (yes, the Henry who sang on Maundy Thursday and blew us all away!), along with Janet, Turissa, Joe, and the choir. It was amazing.

What a wonderful Heritage Sunday Celebration! We kirked the bible in with pipers from City of Syracuse Highland Pipe Band…We welcomed the Elmwood Church members who will be nesting within our church…We celebrated our church, its people, and our Presbyterian heritage through praise, song and fellowship.
Great turnout at the Jones’ for the annual Youth Pumpkin Carving!
