Do you believe every child should have clean water and food? A safe place to live? An education? The chance to learn about and worship Jesus? If you answered yes to one or all of these questions, then I want to see you in the choir room TUESDAY (10/10) morning at 7:15!

Please join me in the choir room TUESDAY MORNING at 7:15 to learn about an amazing service club Mrs. Hess, Ms. Morrison, and I are sponsoring. We are calling it CLUB SOZO—and it will change the way you see the world and the people living in it!

Watch the video and follow the links—–your “YES” tomorrow could change the world for a SOZO child!
