SAVE THE DATE
Planning summer travel? Be sure to visit Mercury One’s next special exhibition, 12 Score & 3 Years Ago: The Unfinished Promise of Unity. This unforgettable, immersive exhibit, running from June 29th to July 7th at Mercury Studios in Irving, Texas will offer an eye-opening exploration of slavery and freedom and will equip visitors to leave as modern abolitionists.
At 12 Score & 3 Years Ago, visitors will meet the unsung African American heroes and journey into their stories and successes. 12 Score – a follow up to last year’s Rights and Responsibilities museum from M1 – will also feature incredible artifacts, augmented reality and more. A visit to 12 Score will conclude with a moving look at slavery today, as millions remain locked in human trafficking around the world.

DALLAS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL’S HIGH SCHOOL DAY
M1 aims to bolster educational opportunties for students, and we were proud to be a part of the Dallas International Film Festival’s annual High School Day on April 16. We’re confident that one day, these next-gen filmmakers will use their skills to share stories that lift the human spirit.
The persecution of Christians continues to be a global problem and is not limited to the battlefields of the Middle East. The Easter Sunday attacks in Sri Lanka that killed 359 and wounded 500 are the most recent incidents. Our prayers are with the victims and their families. At present, The Nazarene Fund is collaborating with the congregations of St. Sebastian’s Church in Negombo, Zion Church in Batitcalao, and St. Anthony’s Shrine in Colombo. Read more about The Nazarene Fund’s ongoiong operation in Sri Lanka on our blog. We need your help to aid families of the lost and wounded.
M1’s disaster relief fund is an accelerator for people to get back on their feet after disaster strikes. Whether responding with aid after the bomb cyclone hit the Great Plains or the spring tornados that ripped through property and injured citizens across the SouthEast, M1’s disaster relief parters quickly moved in to serve. Please continue to pray for these men and women from Team Rubicon, Operation Blessing, CitiImpact, Somebody Cares and others who take the time to train and deploy when duty calls.
Volunteers from M1’s disaster relief partner organizations Team Rubicon, Operation BBQ Relief, CitiImpact distribute supplies, muck out houses, and serve hot meals after historic floods saturate the Midwest. Great teamwork!
The impact of your gift to M1’s disaster relief fund provides for necessities like bottld water, tools, warm blankets and other comforts, as well as long-term recovery support like home rebuilds, counseling services and entire community clean-ups.
