VILLAGE IN THE CITY: INSPIRING MUSIC FOR AN APRIL EVENING, 7 P.M. THIS SUNDAY, APRIL 26 – The Village Chamber Choir will collaborate with the choirs of Baker University and Benedictine College and organist Dr. Elisa Bickers, all under the direction of Matthew Shepard, associate director of music at Village Church. The program includes Festina Lente for Strings and Harp by Arvo Pärt,  Josef Rheinberger’s Concerto in G minor for Orchestra and Organ, concluding with Dona Nobis Pacem by Ralph Vaughan Williams.


Admission is free but tickets are required. If you would like to attend Sunday’s concert and do not have a ticket, come to the Kauffman Center box office at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are being returned all the time, and there will be seats available. The first piece in the concert is 10 minutes long, and latecomers will be seated immediately following its performance as well. Bottom line: no one should stay home because they do not have a ticket. 

 

THWAKE FUNDRAISER APRIL 24 - A desk to sit at and study. A bed to sleep in. A table to pray at before having dinner. You can make all these things possible for a dozen girls by supporting the new Children’s Home in Thwake, Kenya. The building is almost done but now it needs everything that goes inside– furniture, bedding, a kitchen, and more. Reverends David Nzioka and Kirk Perucca will share more about the Thwake Village Partnership and our mission work on Friday, April 24th at 7 p.m. at Neema Community Church, 9898 W. 95th Street in Overland Park. The event is free. A Free Will offering will be taken to help complete the Children’s Home and continue with our medical mission work at the Clinic.
