I am happy to report that Sheila DuBose has agreed to serve as the
Coordinator of ANTS' response to Hurricane Katrina, working closely with
me. Sheila will be sending out a call for those who would like to be
involved in our work to assist the Rev. Joe Howard and the Sixth Union
Baptist Church as they begin to rebuild their infrastructure (everything
from choir robes to Sunday School materials). If you already know that
you would like to be involved in this effort, which will continue on
through next year, please contact Sheila at SDuBose@ants.edu.

The Film and Television Fellowship of Andover-Newton invite you to a
screening of "Schindler's List" on Yom Ha'Shoah, Holocaust Remembrance
Day. This academy award winning film by Steven Spielberg details the
struggle of 1,000 Jewish slave workers and the efforts of German factory
owner Oskar Schindler to free them. Haunting, heartbreaking, this is a
film you will never forget.

for children.

Six minutes of silent prayer will follow the film.
