LONDONDERRY - The Second Congregational Church of Londonderry is hosting a tea to welcome the Rev. Loren McGrail, a missionary to Palestine and Israel on Thursday, Aug. 15 from 2 to 4 p.m.

McGrail is serving a four-year term of service with the YWCA of Palestine, in one of the world's political hot spots. With Israel and Palestine so much in the news, it is fortunate to have a chance to hear first-hand from one who has been there.

All are welcome for tea, snacks and a visit with the Rev. Loren McGrail. For information or directions, call the church office at 824-6453.
