Upcoming Services

Sunday January 21, 2017  

January 21: "The role of Samaritan's Purse in the Ebola Crisis" with Lance Plyler - When the Ebola pandemic hit Africa in 2014, Samaritan's Purse was one of the first organizations to respond with medical personnel and supplies.  They played a central role in helping the sick and containing the spread of the virus, putting their own lives and health at great risk.  Speaker Lance Plyler was one of the doctors on the ground in Liberia during the pandemic.  He will describe the role Samaritan's Purse played in this crisis and in other medical crises around the world in recent years.  Prior to the service, you may want to watch the documentary Facing Darkness, which tells the story of Samaritan's Purse's efforts to fight Ebola and is available on Netflix.
