Karla Koll, KPC’s mission partners who is with Latin American Bible College in Costa Rica, will be in the area with Erlinda Quesada from September 13 -19.
Tuesday, September 17 has been set aside for KPC to host a PCUSA International Peacemaker and Erlinda will be our guest speaker. Join us for dessert (dessert and beverages will be provided) at 7:00 PM. Erlinda is involved in the Rural Aqueduct Association of Milano. She became involved when she realized that the water source for her community was being contaminated by agrochemicals used in pineapple plantations. She holds the pineapple companies and the Costa Rican government responsible for cleaning up and protecting the springs that provide water for Milano.
Erlinda is speaking to groups about the struggles for environmental justice in Costa Rica and our call as Christians to care for God’s creation. Karla will translate.
Please RSVP by either placing the Sunday bulletin insert in the offering plate, or by calling the church office for information, the number of people who will accompany you, and if you need child care.
KPC members are invited to contribute a dessert for the event. Please call the church office to let us know what you will bring.
