On the weekend of April 15 & 16, a 2nd Collection will be held for the Africa Solidarity Fund to build up the Church in Africa. 

The Church in Africa is the fastest growing part of the Universal Church and the poorest part of our family of faith. Spiritually rich but desperately poor, the Church in Africa needs more sustained, well-coordinated and effective help to meet current needs, address critical problems, and realize its enormous potential not only in Africa, but within the Universal Church.
