Join in church's Nonviolence Peace Vigil
Bethel Congregational United Church of Christ invites parishes and congregations to gather for a Washington County Peace Vigil Stand for Peace on Hall Boulevartd at S.W. 5th St. in Beaverton at 6 p.m. Sept. 20.
The vigil, organized around the theme of End Gun Violence, will proclaim solidarity with those who have suffered needlessly from gun violence and ask legislators to pass common sense gun control laws. This is an ecumenical, family-friendly event.
The event is part of a campaign of a Nonviolence Week of Action creating in the spirit of Pace e Bene Nonviolence Service, an independent, nondemonimational organization that works to mainstream peacemaking that will empower people from all walks of life to prayerfully and relentlessly engage in nonviolent efforts for the well-being of others.
