Join us on Sunday, November 4, at 12:30 p.m., in Fellowship Hall, as we celebrate and support La Casita Center. We will hear stories from members of Louisville’s Latino community as we enjoy a delicious taco bar lunch provided by Los Aztecas.
Childcare and children’s activities will be provided by Highland’s Kim Frazier-Pirog’s Side-by-Side Studio. Individual tickets may be purchased: $10 per adult, $7.50 per child under 10 ($25 per family with children). We encourage Bible study classes to purchase an entire table for $80.

A word about Allison Keenan’s original artwork that highlights this event: During the military coup of Chile in the 1970s, the government did really horrible things to people, like separate children from their mothers. Women and Catholic groups sewed crafts called arpilleras and sold them to tourists. They put a secret pocket in the back with stories and cries for help, trying to appeal to the basic human empathy of tourists who may help them. I tried to make the flyer look like a Chilean arpillera, illustrating a journey.
Since we strive to be a church that acts with empathy and justice, let us heed both the beauty of the artwork and the poignancy of this opportunity to meet our immigrant neighbors. We hope you can join us. ~ Immigration Ministry Team
