Church will raise funds for Tanzanian school

Sep 20, 2015

The congregation of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, 72 Spring St., will host "Udugu" on Sunday, Sept. 20.

 

Udugu is the Swahili word for "companionship." The event celebrates the "companionship" of the Metropolitan New York Synod’s partnership with the North Western Diocese of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania, Africa. Hosting a month-long fundraising event, Trinity will raise funds for the Kibeta English Medium Primary School in Tanzania.

 

Church members will host guest speaker Lois Rimbo. She will share the history and stories of the "companionship" at the 10:30 a.m. worship service and during a lunch to follow that will feature Tanzanian dishes.
