The African Children’s Choir performed at The Church Next Door, 5755 Feder Road, for two worship services April 27. After singing and dancing their way into the hearts of the packed church, an offering was recieved for the children orphaned by AIDS in Africa. This is the third time the church has welcomed the African Children’s Choir, which is comprised of children ages seven to eleven. Each child in the choir has lost one or both parents to poverty or disease. They perform throughout the world in an effort to shine the spotlight on the plight of children in Africa.
