Weekly Bilingual Meeting Tuesday Oct. 31st, 2017 — All Hallows’ Eve (Halloween) and All Saints Day Party

Since this is the night when we regularly schedule our weekly meeting, we will have a party which will includes dinner, pumpkin carving, games, candy and a short talk about the Christian tradition of honoring (hallowing) those Christian believers who are now alive with God despite death and our hope for the same experience someday.

Please sign up (registration address: http://tinyurl.com/carve-pumpkin-2017) if you are coming by 7:15 for the pumpkin carving as we hope to have a pumpkin for every family and also some single scholars and Americans who may want to get in on the fun.
