Women of Central Uganda Retreat
Margaret Kaziimba writes that the Diocese of Mityana is hosting a married women's conference - and they are casting a wide net: the women of six diocese in central Uganda are being invited. Light of Christ has helped in contributing to the fence project surrounding the women's building, and Margaret has expressed her gratitude for this extra sense of security. Because her women's ministry group will be providing meals and housing for the visitors Margaret requests our steadfast prayers for provision and blessing.
Mark your calendars. Light of Christ Church will host the one-day Quasar Conference on September 12 at O.A. Brinkley Hall. The Quasar Conference is presented by Deacon Georgette Forney, President of Anglicans for Life, and addresses abortion, end of life issues, and ministry ideas and outreach opportunities related to life. Register by calling the church office or emailing at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Truth Talk, The Christian Worldview Institute has launched "Truth Talk", a summer youth program for high school students. The program consists of weekly faith discussions and paying jobs to help the students prepare for Christian adulthood. Teams of teenagers will do residential maintenance — initially odd jobs outside the home.
We are looking for adults to serve as supervisors to accompany the students as they go out to job sites. This is a great opportunity for ministry to young people one-on-one. We need both men and women. All volunteers will be trained and screened in accordance with our Child Protection Policy. To volunteer or find out more, contact Jan Beckett at 580-5179.
