The Women’s Fellowship Choir of EYN (Ekklesiyar Yan’uwa, the Church of the Brethren in Nigeria) will perform at 7:00pm on July 8 at UBBC.
Before that, join us for a conversation and potluck dinner. Here is the full schedule of events:
4:00pm – Lament in the Community of Faith – Fireside Room
A conversation with Bob Neff and our Nigerian sisters and brothers to learn about laments in the Bible, in our personal lives and the greater community.
5:30pm – Potluck Dinner – Fellowship Hall
7:00pm – Concert – Sanctuary
Important: Parking will be limited around the church due to Arts Festival. On street parking is available on Burrowes Street between Foster and Beaver Avenues or on all streets west of Atherton. The Beaver Garage is also available, just 3 blocks away.
The 20-30 member choir will sing songs of faith and thanksgiving despite the terror and devastation they have faced at home. Updates and stories of life in northeast Nigeria will be interspersed throughout the concert.
This free, public concert is in appreciation of the support Nigerians have received from American Brethren during the recent persecution, violence and hardship. The choir is part of a larger group touring the U.S. in June and July, concluding at the Church of the Brethren Annual Conference in Florida.
A freewill offering will be gathered to benefit the Nigeria Crisis Fund.
