WEATHER UPDATE FOR 2/25: We are having Wednesday night meal tonight.  A great deal of effort went into tonight’s meal as is the case each week and the latest weather forecast does not mention snow and ice concerns for our area.  If it is 2 or 3 inches of snow on the ground or ice covering road, then obviously, you should not be out driving around. Just doesn’t look like that will be the case.  The following program will be offered tonight: 

  • Regular Children’s & Youth Programs
  • Knitting Group meets in the Men’s Classroom
  • Rachael is leading a Bible Study on John – meets in the Good News Classroom

Mwangaza Children’s Choir Is Coming To Perform! On March 25, 2015 a wonderful group of talented children from East Africa is going to be performing at McDonough Presbyterian Church. This choir, The Mwangaza Children’s Choir is an inspiring group of 20 hopeful and talented children, ages 8-14, who admirably represent the orphaned and poverty-stricken youth of Uganda. Touring as a ministry outreach of Africa Renewal Ministries, they come to share a special message of hope through authentic Ugandan song and dance. The upcoming performance will be a part of Mwangaza’s tenth international tour!  We are in need of host families to provide housing to the choir while they are here. Please contact Jason Montague for questions or more information. Please visit the website for more information, music, and videos regarding the choir.
