Welcomes Nigerian Delegation
Ekklesiyar Yan-uwa a Nigeria (EYN, the Church of the Brethren in Nigeria) has endured staggering loss at the hands of Boko Haram, an Islamic insurgent group. Of the 273 girls kidnapped in April 2014 in Chibok, most were from EYN families, and 219 are still missing.
More than 8,000 EYN members have been killed, 1,674 worship centers destroyed and over 700,000 Nigerians connected to EYN displaced.
EYN members will be in the Shenandoah Valley on July 1 and 2 - the EYN Women's Fellowship Choir and a group of business and professional people - sharing testimony, songs and updates on the crisis they are experiencing.
Come worship with our Nigerian brothers and sisters!
7 p.m. Wednesday, July 1, at the Carter Center for Worship and Music at Bridgewater College
7 p.m. Thursday, July 2, at Antioch Church of the Brethren (23502 Senedo Road, Woodstock, Va.)
Admission is free; offerings will support tour expenses and the Nigeria Crisis Fund.
