Rio Texas MFSA will provide witness for Social Justice once again at the Rio Texas Annual Conference in Corpus Christi, June 7 – 9, 2017. We will sponsor the 7th Annual Peace and Justice Luncheon on Thursday, June 8, at noon. We are excited that our luncheon speaker will be John Hill, Assistant General Secretary of Advocacy and Organizing for the UMC General Board of Church and Society.
Also, our Book Fair will return this year! We ask friends to box up their gently used books – religious and spiritual books, curriculum, and appropriate fiction and nonfiction – and we take them to Corpus Christi. It becomes like a treasure hunt at our tables! People contribute to us according to what they think the books are worth to them. The donations help defray the costs of the Rio Texas MFSA Peace and Justice Luncheon. Contact Rowland Curry firstname.lastname@example.org and he will arrange to pick them up.
