A Visit to the Sudan:
Great Need, and Glimmers of Hope

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

In January, Becca Huttsell, a member of Jesus MCC’s Missions Board, took a two-week trek to the country of Sudan, Africa. She went at the invitation of New Community Project (NCP), a nonprofit Christian organization that provides assistance to people and communities in need around the world.

David Radcliff is the Founder and Director of NCP. He visited Jesus MCC in September 2007, as we began to explore ways Jesus MCC can make a positive difference for some of the neediest people around the world.

Becca says about her trip, “What I learned is that the people in southern Sudan require continued aid, protection and humanitarian assistance due to injustice and atrocities. They have suffered in silence and invisibility for too long. I pray that we, the congregation of Jesus MCC, will find a way to bring hope to the people in this troubled land.”

New Community Project has found a way to be the hands and feet of God in action. Heads are now raised that once bowed low.

After we have gathered enough information, the Missions Board will prepare a proposal for how we can help. Continue reading for Becca’s complete report.

Dinner, Art Show, and Auction!

Childhood Memories—Adult Dreams!

That’s the theme for our 2008 Art Auction, and you won’t want to miss it! This Auction will raise funds for our Children’s and Missions Ministries.

This Auction is not just a fundraiser, it’s an event! We’ll have an over-the-top extravaganza beginning with the art preview and amazing food at 6:00 pm.

We will bring back fond memories of childhood, with a gourmet twist on favorite foods from another era. We’ll be entertained by a magician, a balloon artist and a face painter, then the auction will begin at 7:30 pm.

Kids under 13 are admitted free—but please let us know they’re coming, so we can make arrangements.

Tickets are on sale at the church on Sundays for $20, or patron packages of 10 tickets for $150. To reserve tickets or to advertise in the auction program, please email us.
