Plains invites peacemakers to join “Christian Peace Witness for Iraq

dscn1776.jpgAs Plains Mennonite Church, we invite you to join us and thousands of others in a “Christian Peace Witness for Iraq.” As followers of Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, our faith compels us to make our voice heard — to repent of our complicity with the invasion and occupation of Iraq and to renew our commitment to peacemaking.

Plains Mennonite Church has chartered a 54-passenger bus to travel to Washington, D.C., on Friday, March 16, 2007, for the “Christian Peace Witness for Iraq.” This event is open to families. Children under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or adult. Cost for the bus is $30 per person, due when you register.

Invite your friends to join us for this important witness. Please sign up early to be sure that you get a seat.
