April 12, 2017
Here are the upcoming happenings at King Avenue UMC. Please scroll through the general annoucements, then scroll through the categories. You can click on the included links for more details.
Cuisine for a Cause
The ninth annual Cuisine For A Cause is in the books, and we’re happy to report that we raised about $17,000 to support the children of Casa de Misericordia. It seems clear that our venue for this year – Strongwater Food & Spirits in Franklinton – is a terrific facility and those who attended had a great time. The money we raised is desperately needed by the orphanage as they struggle to provide food, housing, clothing, medical care, education, and emotional and spiritual care for two dozen neglected, abandoned and abused children.
