When two deadly hurricanes throttled southern Africa in March, our church began visioning a project to raise funds and awareness for disaster relief in Mozambique, the hardest hit country. The youth of our church are leading this pledge-raising drive in collaboration with Black Lives Matter, the Beloved Earth Community, and the Mission & Social Justice Commission.
Riverside’s youth will be creating a massive mural on a continuous roll of butcher block paper, and asking congregants to make pledges for the amount of mural they complete in the course of this marathon session — the more the youth create, the more money our church will raise for disaster relief in Mozambique. Keep an eye out for flyers explaining why we believe this project is so important, and please fill out the pledge form on the flyer or online.
Funds raised in the congregation will be matched by a donation from MSJ’s Disaster Relief Fund.
