Advocate Hosts Johnson Service Corps Commissioning and Pounding Party August 30

The Advocate is glad for our connections through the years with the young adults of the Johnson Service Corps. Part of the Episcopal Service Corps network, Johnson Service Corps members live together in an intentional community, learning community and leadership skills while working in a non-profit placement in Durham/Chapel Hill.

The Advocate is excited to host the commissioning and pounding party for the 2015-2016 Johnson Service Corps members, Sunday, August 30.

The Commission will take place in the context of our 5 PM liturgy, and the Pounding Party will follow at 6:30 PM.

Pounding Party is a southern tradition; bring a pound of something to help the corps members set up their new home! 

The dinner will be a potluck, so please bring a side dish or dessert to share.

All are welcome and encouraged to come celebrate the new corps members: Allie, Ashley, Helen, Jordan, Jahkazia, Jessi and Loui.
