Preparation for a pilgrimage to Kenya : Commissioning Service
First Christian Church, Lafayette, Indiana is traveling to Kenya on a People-to-People Pilgrimage in May, 2007. Under the leadership of Connie Schultz, and in consultation with the Global Ministries' People-to-People Program, the group of eleven0 spent several months planning and preparing for this 14-day trip to visit Phyllis Byrd, our missionary in Kenya, and our partner, PCEA (Presbyterian Church of East Africa).
During the church's May 6 worship service, the group was commissioned by the congregation.
