As you likely have heard, our Senior High Youth Group this June is going on a mission trip to Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. This Sunday in worship, our guests from Sanctuary Church, UCC will share their experiences at Pine Ridge. Below, please see an excerpt from a press release which was sent to the papers this week.
On Sunday, November 8th, the Highlands Church will welcome several members of Sanctuary UCC in Medford who are veteran Pine Ridge volunteers and will participate in the service. Joy Harris and Bruce Roberts co-led three trips to Pine Ridge; Kathy Williams, who will preach that Sunday, was a trip leader/volunteer; Elizabeth Binckes, a BU student, participated in the 2015 trip to Re-Member. They will also do a detailed presentation for the Senior Youth Group after worship. They'll be joined by Tosa Two Heart, a young Oglala Lakota woman pursuing an advanced degree at Bentley.
I hope you can join us Sunday!
