Come sing or play music!

Phinney Bread for the Journey concert May 15

What:

A Concert to celebrate our musical community and benefit the ELCA program God’s Global Barnyard

Who:

All Phinney children and youth are invited to perform music: sing or play a solo, duet, group number, give a preview of your upcoming recital piece, have fun! Any style of music is welcome. We welcome your help to make the concert a success!

When:

May 15th, our second-to-last BFJ, following the the Confirmation dinner.

Where:

The PRLC sanctuary

Why:

Phinney kids have played music in the past to benefit the family shelter of Mary’s Place. BFJ is winding down so this will be a fun chance to enjoy music together and support a program that seeks to aid people all over the world, supplying people with animals, bees, even water filters and solar lanterns, everything to make their lives better.

How:

Contact our children’s choir director Evelyn Hartwell if you can sing or play something that night! Email Evelyn by Wednesday, May 8th.

 

All are welcome to enjoy the concert. Treats to follow!

What is the difference between ELCA Good Gifts and similar organizations?

Many other organizations are doing wonderful work around the world, and some do work in similar ways. A main difference between the ELCA and other programs is that this church receives almost all of the money to fund its work directly through its congregations and members, and almost all of the money that we distribute goes to support the work being carried out by our congregations, global companion churches and ecumenical partners. This is unique because the church is our delivery system. It is successful because the church is present in far corners of the world and already connected and trusted in communities. And finally, it is sustainable. Our churches and partners are the ones who identify local needs and solutions; we just help make those dreams a reality.

What about animals? How can I talk about the importance of animals with others?

Your gifts to God’s Global Barnyard support the sustainable development ministries of ELCA World Hunger, which include training, education, resources (and much more) to help the community care for animals and create new market opportunities like starting a small business selling eggs, meat or dairy products. Your gifts support this comprehensive approach to animal husbandry.
