Information for this Sunday, April 22, 2018

This is the fourth Sunday of the month.  After Meeting for Worship, please join us in the Fireside room at 12:15 for a carry-in meal with the theme "comfort foods."

Cuba Mission Project
Following the carry-in meal at 12:30, Libbie Curry, a member of Chester Friends Meeting, will be speaking on a restoration mission project in Cuba. In the early 1900’s Wilmington Yearly Meeting began a mission in Cuba, establishing a Meeting and School. The Friends School is no longer in operation, but the buildings which housed the school need restoration so that they can become a center for community activities. All are welcome to attend this most interesting discussion of a project that Cincinnati Friends Meeting has committed to support.
