2021 MHCH Celebration!

25 Oct

Change Gonna Come Logo landscapeThis Sunday, Dec 5, at 3 pm you are invited to our annual celebration called “A Change is Gonna Come” (based on the song by Sam Cooke). We’re thrilled that we have engaged a small jazz ensemble that will be the backup for this song sung by a Congolese singer. Both the ensemble and the singer are from churches in Pasadena that support our efforts: Pasadena Church and Wholicare Mennonite Church. 

This Sunday you’ll also hear a professional video about our work by Morgan Tucker and stories of those who are committed to housing justice. Thanks to all of you who came to our online event on Tuesday! Our goal is $25,000. Thanks for helping us get roughly halfway. Please help us get over the finish line so we can house our homeless neighbors. 

Sunday, Dec. 5th, 3-5:30 pm in person theirry and juan
