Stand with Africa - A Campaign of Hope

Communion Ware from Bethlehem in the Holy Land was used at the 2005 Churchwide Assembly. Each synod received a set to use within their synod to that journey of peace that started in Bethlehem. We've lost track of our set (pictured below).  Call the Synod office - 866-967-3522 (toll free) or 419-423-3664 - if you know of its whereabouts.
