The October Mustard Seed Collection will support St. Saviour School in Zarka, Jordan - Ingathering on Sunday, October 22
At Saviour’s School, blind and low-vision students are mainstreamed with sighted students in grades K-12. The 350-student school is the only one to address the needs of the high number of sight-impaired children in this gritty industrial city. All students receive high-quality academic instruction and important lessons in embracing differences. This month’s Mustard Seed collection will be used to purchase electronic braille machines. Thank you for your continued support in our efforts to transform the lives of children through education!
Adult Forums continue this Sunday
Following the 9:00 a.m. service on October 22, and 29, the Rev’d Geoffrey Hoare continues his three-part series on generosity and giving in general and at St. Alban's in particular. On November 5, 12, 19, and 26, Dr. Ed Roslof will teach a four-part series on the Protestant Reformation.
