CPAS raises $25,500

The Compassionate Performing Arts Series (CPAS) has been a joint initiative of the First Wesleyan Church and Premiere Productions.   Concerts were scheduled throughout 2009 and proceeds beyond the expenses were designated for two ministries:  the Citizens against Violence (CAV) of High Point and the Refugee Welcome Network (RWN).   Last Sunday a check was presented to each charity in the amount of  $12,750.  The Refugee Welcome Network has been able avert a person being homeless, provide portable heat, feed some who were hungry and generally be a secondary safety net for the refugees among us.   The refugees pictured on the platform are Nu Nu and Sharon.  Thank you on behalf of the RWN for your concern for those with needs among us.

About johnmcmurphy

Jesus is first and foremost in my life. He is above all religions, principalities and powers. In everything He must increase and I must decrease. Into the hands of Jesus, God has placed life and death, truth and purity. strength and meaning. Only in a growing understanding of the triune God, and his son Jesus can I do, breathe, exist and serve. I have a Bachelor's degree in Bible from Vennard College, a Master's in Social Science from Azusa Pacific University and a Ph. D. from Ohio State in Family Relations and Human Development. I am an ordained pastor involved in cross-cultural ministry. I am currently employed at several colleges as an instructor. If you need to get in touch with me, just leave a comment, I screen all comments and so you can leave further contact information which I will erase before it is published. -John
