Forum with Rev. Elmarie Parker
Rev. Elmarie Parker and her husband, Rev. Scott Parker, have been serving as Presbyterian USA missionaries for Iraq, Syria and Lebanon for over twenty years. Currently, they are based in Lebanon, working with the local churches and community partners.
Rev. Scott worked with schools in Lebanon through the ‘Strong Kids’ mental health program, which was discontinued during Covid. However, other programs are thriving and thousands of displaced persons are being helped. There has been a serious food shortage and even a shortage of agricultural land. Nevertheless, a program helping people grow food on their balconies has thrived. Local churches continue to work in the midst of violence to witness to all the love of Christ through inclusion of local groups into the projects and outreach.
Join us as we welcome Rev. Elmarie to Immanuel on Wednesday, Sept. 20th at 7:00pm to discuss her work in Lebanon. All are welcome for this special forum and dinner in the Meeting House. If you cannot attend in person, you are encouraged to join us on Zoom. Trinity Presbyterian members will be joining us, as well. We hope to see you there!
