We will be recognizing the 2016 National Observance of Children’s Sabbaths® Celebration, “Children of Promise: Closing Opportunity Gaps” and will focus on closing opportunity gaps due to poverty and lack of access to high-quality early childhood development and a high-quality education so that every child can reach their God-given potential.
We welcome guest speaker Judy McGonigle Akers from Della Lamb Community Services. We have partnered with Della Lamb this year to provide children's books. DLCS provide low-income families with early education, child care, youth services, adult services, adult education, transportation, emergency social services, international refugee services, Elementary Charter School education, back-to-school supplies, Thanksgiving groceries and Christmas groceries and gifts.
We as people of faith stand tall within our communities and push our nation to keep our promises of love and justice, equality and dignity for all.
