On Sunday, Dec. 4, First United Methodist Church in Sylacauga hosted a performance by the African Children's Choir.
The African Childrens Choir is comprised of children ages seven to eleven. Each child in the Choir, has lost one or both parents to poverty or disease.
The group serves as ambassadors for all children in Africa who have become orphans because of the AIDS pandemic. They perform throughout the world bringing hope and joy to everyone they meet while shining the spotlight on the plight of children in Africa.
Church members opened their homes to the children on Saturday and Sunday. The choir's performance was open to the community.
The church received a "Tip of the hat" notice in the local newspaper, The Daily Home which said, "The church deserves thanks for seizing the opportunity to bring children home to Sylacauga and serve as a vehicle to help children a world away."
