The Ugandan Kids Choir, a group of ten talented Ugandan children, has announced that they will be performing at Connection Church (402 Grand Avenue, GJ) on September 21st, 2014 at 10 am. All ten children have been given hope through Childcare Worldwide’s Sponsorship Program and now they are here to spread that hope to audiences all across the United States. The choir has performed nationwide at churches, schools, at Disneyland, on King 5 Television’s “New Day Northwest,” at Qwest Field, home of the Seattle Seahawks, and on the steps of the White House.
These children delight audiences with traditional African songs and dances. Megan DiRienzo, Curator of Education at the San Angelo Museum of Fine arts says, “All of you have amazing talents, beautiful voices and some serious dance skills! A performance like yours was a once in a lifetime opportunity. We fully support you on your mission to end child poverty!”
The Ugandan Kids Choir is a ministry of Childcare Worldwide, which has been dedicated to empowering children in the developing world since 1981. Through child sponsorship, Childcare Worldwide brings hope to children in need by providing them with an education that will set them up for future employment and break the cycle of poverty in their lives.
By coming to this event, you will enjoy traditional African song and dance, as well as help children in need all around the world. So don’t miss this unique and authentic performance by the children of the Ugandan Kids Choir.

Landmark Baptist Church, 2711 Unaweep Avenue, Grand Junction
Landmark Baptist Church will present the cantata From Christmas to Calvary by Glenn and Jan Christianson on Friday, December 23 at 7:00 p.m. and again on Sunday, December 25 at 11:00 a.m.
In this story Hank, who is old and cantankerous and is bitter toward God and the church, learns the true meaning of Christmas—that Jesus came to earth with the sole reason of dying on the cross for our sins. Some of the choir goes caroling at Hank’s home, where he lives with his daughter and her family, and they have a great effect on Hank. Hank is able to soften his heart and overcome his bitterness enough to trust the Lord as his Saviour. Hank finds a reason for living.
The event will be held at Landmark Baptist Church located at 2711 Unaweep Avenue in Grand Junction. There is no cost and nursery is provided. Call 970-257-1047 for further information.
