New Mexico Conference of Churches

Turquoise Chalice Dinner

 On the evening of Saturday, January 24, 2015, during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, the New Mexico Conference of Churches will host the Turquoise Chalice Award Dinner. This year's recipient is the Rev. Carole McGowan of the Episcopal Diocese of the Rio Grande. Beginning at 6:30 PM at St. Thomas of Canterbury Episcopal Church in Albuquerque, there will be a silent auction, door prizes, and a special presentation by ValLimar Jansen.

Blessed with an extraordinary voice, ValLimar Jansen is a highly regarded singer, cantor, and recording artist. She is also a college professor, a leader of worship and prayer, and a workshop presenter at conferences across the United States. Known especially for her work with gospel, contemporary Christian and gospel-jazz styles, she sings a wide range of music, her presentations engaging for Christians of all ages.
Come and enjoy a glass of wine, a nice dinner, and two extraordinary women, Carole and ValLimar - all while supporting the New Mexico Conference of Churches.

Tickets are $35 and are available online until Jan. 20th.




 The New Mexico Conference of Churches is a community of Christians across the state. We work to build relationships across denominational borders in order to live into Jesus' prayer that we all may be one. The fruit of these relationships in Christ is a common mission to respond to those in need and to advocate on issues of importance.

  • The Storehouse
