Joyner to be featured at "Food and Faith"

Melfield UCC, Haw River, NC 27258

On Saturday, February 23rd, from 9:30 till noon, we invite you and your congregations to share in Rev. Richard Joyner's story of redemption, courage, and community at Melfield UCC in Haw River (just outside of Burlington).  His presentation will be followed by a panel discussion among food, health and environmental advocates within and without the SOC, including Sarah Horton-Campbell, LaShauna Austria, and Rev Dele, among others.  And then comes the feast!  We invite you to bring your family's or your church's (or both) favorite heirloom recipes to share; however, if you aren't able to bring food, we will have plenty on hand to feed everyone, at no cost.  We do ask that you register for the event, so that we can get an accurate count for what will be needed.  Please click here to do so, and to find out more about the event. You can also contact Rev.Karen Richardson Dunn at for more information.
