Our current Office Manager will be moving out of state this fall. We are currently seeking a new Office Manager for 17 hours a week. You can review the position description here. If you know someone who may be a good fit for this position, please forward them our information.
OPJF meeting is planned for Wednesday, August 23, at 6:00 pm in the church fellowship hall. We’ll have a casual potluck dinner followed by a screening of “Another Way of Living: The Story of Reston, VA.” This award-winning film, produced by Rebekah Wingert-Jabi, details how, during a time of racial and cultural unrest, the founders of Reston created a truly diverse community. Please let us know if you’re bringing the kids – we will try to set up child care.
Our efforts are grounded in our conviction that peacemaking requires creating a more just society, and our commitment to build and leverage relational power to affect social change. Join us to discuss how we can be a witness to Christ’s love in the world through actions and advocacy. RSVP and find more on Facebook.
