WORLD AIDS DAY 2012
Dear MCC Churches and Friends:
This year, the global World AIDS Day theme is, “Working Together for an AIDS-Free Generation!” Now, more than ever, that goal is in sight!
We have some U.S. and global facts sheets to share with you, as well as a prayer program designed through the cooperation of a local MCC and a member of our Public Policy Team.
We have some suggestions and options for you to consider as your church makes its voice and influence known in your community.
We have an announcement about our new MCC HIV/AIDS Advisory Council.
I will be creating a video for World AIDS Day that will be sent to you soon, as well as posted on this page, to use in your church service or in other ways.
Blessings to all as we pray and work together for the end of AIDS!
Grace and Peace,
Rev. Nancy Wilson
MCC HIV/AIDS Advisory Council
Details coming soon.
