FBC Newsletter: July 22, 2015
Special Merit Award
The Ann Arbor Historic District Commission honored FBC with a Special Merit Award. The HDC: “This field-stone church, which dates to 1880, was designed by Elijah Myers, the architect of the State Capitol in Lansing. The congregation recently replaced the slate roof at great expense. It was worth it.”
Stop Human Trafficking Now
Pearls of Great Price, a grassroots Christian coalition in Wayne & Washtenaw Counties, working together to fight against human trafficking, is hosting “SOAP – Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution” on Saturday, July 11th, from 9:30am to 2:00pm at the Salvation Army located at 100 Arbana Dr., Ann Arbor 48103.
When hundreds of thousands of people gather, prostitution increases exponentially. Prior to Art Fair, they will take bars of soap to motels in the area along with posters of recently missing children. The soap has a red sticker on the back with the hotline number. Exploited women and children can hide that sticker in their shoe. According to survivor and founder of SOAP, Theresa Flores, this is a successful rescue program. $10 registration includes lunch.
Tickets can be purchased, or donations of soap and materials made, at http://www.eventbrite.com/e/soap-up-ann-arbor-art-show-tickets-16529045821. Brochures can be found at the information counter.
