Clergy Breakfast this Saturday


This Saturday, S.O.S. C.A.N. will hold a clergy breakfast  at The Bethany United Methodist church. 

At the breakfast we will recognize and appreciate clergy members' contributions to the fight against gun violence.  A young community organizer will come to speak about how he mobilized pastors in Brownsville and East New York to build the Nehemiah low income housing development, among other initiatives. The Clergy Action Network will also share some pertinent information with attendees that will transform neighborhoods and houses of worship. Finally, participants will discuss the importance doing something not simply for the sake of doing it, but for the sake of adding value to communities and congregations.

For more information contact S.O.S. clergy liason Reverend Kevin Jones at 917-837-2032 or masterkevin5@aol.com.
