Africa University representative to speak on September 4

Almost since Africa University’s beginning, Pamela Crosby has celebrated being part of this university’s great history. Although not part of the overall plan, she has relished and treasured the fallout she caught from this exciting mission in higher education.

In 1988, she was United Methodist Communication’s first account executive for the Africa University Fund and attended AU’s first board of directors meeting. She has been a member of Africa University’s advisory development committee since the early 1990s, and participated in producing many of the university’s initial promotional resources.

On September 4, Pamela will speak to the Graham Inquirer’s class during the Sunday School hour. All are invited.

The Communion offering on September 4 will support conference askings for Africa University, located in Old Mutare, Zimbabwe.  Africa University is the first fully accredited United Methodist educational institution on the continent of Africa offering bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in six areas of learning.

Another way that you can support Africa University is by giving to the Jason Kite Memorial Fund, which is used for Africa University scholarships. Jason Kite, the son of Sue Mather, was inspired by his visit to Africa University. He died shortly after his visit and the Jason Kite Memorial Fund for Africa University was established at Belmont UMC. If you would like to give to this worthy cause, please write “Jason Kite Memorial” on the memo line of your check.

Parent and Child Music Group

This past year, on Friday mornings, young children, parents, grandparents, and/or care givers have been coming to the Parent and Child Music Group! We have sung about leaves, pumpkins, fish in the sea, and God’s love for us. We have danced, read books, and had snack time together. We have been taking a break for the summer, but we will resume our regular weekly schedule on Friday, September 9, from 10:00-11:00, at the church in room 213. Infants and preschoolers are all welcome! Questions? Contact  Amy Cooper.
