On Saturday, April 15, Little River UCC will host a community vigil at 7:30pm.
This event is a response to the vandalism at our church and the Jewish Community Center (JCC). This vigil is open to people of all faiths and to people of no particular faith. Members of several faith traditions will help lead the service, including friends from the JCC. Pastor David hopes that this vigil will help our communities — Little River UCC, the JCC, and our various neighbors — begin to heal.
