Imagine No Malaria

Unlike many other diseases that are awaiting a cure, malaria was eliminated in the U.S. in the 1950s. However, in Sub-Saharan Africa, malaria continues to kill a person every 60 seconds. But there is hope! Imagine No Malaria is part of a global partnership and together with our partners, our generation can beat malaria once and for all. Jewel Lake Parish will receive an offering for Imagine No Malaria during our worship gathering on May 10.

More information about malaria and pointers to other projects combatting it is available from the Gates Foundation.

Town Hall Meeting – Sunday, May 3

Pastor Luke will host a “Town Hall” meeting at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 3. The purpose of the meeting will be to discuss recent changes in the Presbyterian Church’s constitution, and especially the changes related to the definition of marriage (particularly in the area of same-sex relationships). This is not a formal Congregational Meeting, but rather an opportunity to explain what has happened and discuss its implications for Jewel Lake Parish.
