The Fourth Sunday of Advent
In January, 2012 Seekers Church will once again be blessed by a visit from the Bokamoso Youth Centre in Winterveldt, South Africa. We just heard from the Bokamoso Program Director that they have their visas, and travel arrangements are on track. The group will be arriving on January 4th. They are scheduled to bring the Word to our worship on Sunday, January 15th. We hope you will join us to hear first-hand their vibrant hope for the future. To see where else they will be appearing, check their calendar on the Bokamoso Foundation web site.
