Global Missions Olive Oil Sale
On December 3, 10, and 17, Rock Spring is joining with 18 other congregations in an all-volunteer effort sponsored by the Middle East Committee of Westmoreland UCC in Bethesda to offer olive oil, tapenade, soaps, and other enticing Middle East products for purchase. The net proceeds from the sale will benefit the Tent of Nations, an organic farm near Bethlehem. Tent of Nations seeks to build bridges between people, including neighboring Jewish and Muslim communities. Its guiding principle is, “We Refuse to be Enemies.” Some Rock Springers have visited the Tent of Nations in Palestine in recent years and were inspired by the farm's sustainable practices and its owners' hope for the region. Please stop by after church on those Sundays and support this worthwhile cause.
