The new exhibit in the Seekers Gallery features images and textiles from Guatemala. The cards and prints by Shawn Vidmar Devine are accompanied by textiles from the collection of Sandra Miller.
Shawn carefully chose the photos and cards in this exhibit from images captured during Guatemala pilgrimages sponsored by Seekers Church. Both Shawn and her husband Dan have benefited from the Seekers Scholarship fund, so they wanted to give back to the church and the program. All of the proceeds from this show go toward Seekers’ involvement with PAVA, the scholarship fund, and/or any other expenses Seekers incurs with the 2015 Pilgrimage.
Seekers Church supports many missions and ministries in the United States and other countries. The amount budgeted for international giving this year approaches 20% of what we expect to receive in offerings over the course of the year. Once our budget for the year was approved, and the overall amount available for international giving had been determined by the Stewards of Seekers Church, all members of the faith community were invited to request support for missions or ministries where they are personally involved.
After worship on March 15th the community affirmed support for eight international missions and ministries:
Bokamoso Youth Foundation – Winterveldt, South Africa
Othandweni Day Care and Guest House – Winterveldt, South Africa
PAVA (Programa de Ayuda a los Vecinos del Altiplano) – Chimaltenango, Guatemala
Collegio Miguel Angel Asturias – Quetzaltenango, Guatemala
Abato Foundation - Mpigi, Uganda
New Story Leadership - Israel/Palestine
Seekers Church continues to support many missions and ministries in the United States and other countries. The amount budgeted for domestic giving is usually about 20% of what we expect to receive in offerings over the course of the year. Once our budget is approved each year and the overall amount available for domestic giving has been determined by the Stewards of Seekers Church, all members of the faith community are invited to request support for missions or ministries where they are personally involved.
For 2015 the community has affirmed support for 30 domestic missions and ministries. For easy access to more information, the name of each organization is linked to its web site.

2015 Guatemala Pilgrimage
11 - 21 July 2015
REGISTRATION IS FULL!
Plans are well under way for this year's Seekers work pilgrimage to Guatemala. In July we will be returning to Panimachavac in the highlands east of Tecpan, to continue our support for the village as they complete the initial phase of their community library.
This year we will be welcoming six pilgrims from Seekers Church as well as others from California, Georgia, North Carolina, Texas and Virginia. Ten of us will be returning for another opportunity to work with PAVA on this important community-building initiative.
