  • The Women of Grace Covenant Church are excited to announce our 2018 Women's Conference: "Unveiling Beauty".

    Unveiling: removing a veil or covering from, in particular, uncovering.
    Beauty: a combination of qualities that pleases the intellect or moral sense. 

    Do you know that you reflect a spectacular beauty? A combination of qualities regularly on display? Even, an outward glory openly revealed? 

    Woman's identification with beauty has its beginning in the garden of Eden when God created the first woman, Eve. Her beauty was timeless, unique, personal, and wonderfully authentic. She reflected a breathtaking image of her Creator. Just as Eve represented a visible example of an unveiled beauty so can every woman today. Let's let God enhance our beauty!

    Grace Covenant Church invites you to join us at our 2018 'Unveiling Beauty Conference" on Friday, April 27 & Saturday, April 28!

  • Roots of Development's annual fundraiser is one of the largest annual Haiti events in the nation's capital. Diverse and influential guests, business and political leaders, media and entertainment personalities gather in Washington D.C. every year to celebrate Haiti and support Roots of Development’s unique approach to development.

     It is the organization's most important fundraiser of the year, helping it raise a significant portion of the funds it uses to carry out its mission of strengthening leaders and local community groups and improving quality of life in Haiti. We hope you will join us for this year's special 10th anniversary celebration! 

    7:00pm - General admission

    6:00pm - VIP reception (for VIP ticket-holders only)

      The event is expected to sell out. Get your tickets early!

    Dress code is business casual, with a Masquerade flair

    The theme of this year's event is Masquerade ("Bal Masqué"). So while the suggested dress code for the event is business casual, feel free to come wearing your most fun Masquerade/Carnival outfit and accessories (masks, beads, feather boas, etc.)! 



    (all included in the price of your ticket)



    Unlimited wine and cocktails will be served, along with lots of great Haitian hors d'oeuvres and appetizers prepared by Chantal Louis Charles.

    You and your guests will be educated, inspired, and treated to the very best of Haitian cuisine and culture all evening long. Food will be served (passed around) until 8:30pm. 

     Cocktails and wine served all night long



    When the OAS Building located at Seventeenth Street and Constitution Ave., N.W., Washington D.C., was completed in 1910, it was considered the architectural wonder of its time. 

    Organization of American States

    Ninety-three years later, the building's tropical patio, marbled staircases and galleries, and monumental halls continue to delight the thousands of tourists and diplomats who visit the elegant structure every year. 

    Hall of the Americas

    The OAS Building, know throughout the region as "The House of the Americas", has become more than a beautiful architectural statement. It has truly become a lasting symbol of inter-American unity and understanding.

    The dress code for this year's event is business casual.



    Every year the event has new surprises, guest DJs, live dancers, photo booths, a rara band, famous Haitian bands, live graffiti/art performances, a real life fresco cart, etc. This year's surprises, with it being the 10th anniversary celebration, will not dissappoint!

Here can be found rubber, fig, coffee, and banana plants, as well as other tropical plants bearing exotic flowers. The floor of the patio is made of red tile decorated with black figures copied from Maya and Inca ruins.

     Raising funds for our upcoming project

    Roots of Development is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to help marginalized communities in Haiti acquire the financial resources and organizational skills they need to manage their own development. 

    This year, we are raising the rest of the funds needed to develop a communal developmet plan with the mayor of Anse-a-Galets and members of civil society on the island of La Gonave, Haiti. The plan will strengthen governance and increase local ownership of the development process on the island.

    The project is an 18-month initiative that will result in a 3-5 year formal development plan for the municipality ("commune"). The development plan will be developed entirely by local residents and leaders, printed, and available to all parties interested in helping La Gonave explore its greatest opportunities and address its greatest needs, as identified by them.

    Roots of Development's vision is for a world in which the very communities living in poverty are the ones leading the fight against it.

  • Email-writing Workshop in Washington D.C.

    How to write e-zines and email blasts

    Workshop Agenda


    That’s the average ROI on email marketing, according to the Direct Marketing Association. And that, says Inc., is a better return than for any other marketing channel.

    But that return is an opportunity — not a promise. And taking advantage of that opportunity isn’t easy. Email has some built-in problems that make it easy to annoy, rather than convert, subscribers:

    • American professionals receive an average of 121 emails a day. (Radicati)
    • Of those, an average of 276 emails remain unread in inboxes at any given time. That’s a 300% increase in unread emails in just four years. (Nielsen Norman Group)
    • If they do open your message, people spend an average of just 11.1 seconds on each email they review. (Litmus) That’s enough time to read about 37 words.
    • People read some 54% of emails on mobile devices. (Litmus) That’s an issue, because mobile reading reduces everything from comprehension to clicks.

    In this environment, how do get the word out via email? In this workshop, you will learn how to:

    • Get opened. Learn best practices for the three email elements that users use to decide whether to open your message — or delete it without clicking.
    • Get read. Avoid the No. 1 reason readers unsubscribe. (Lyris)
    • Get clicked. Walk away with 7 steps for writing links that increase clicks.
    • Get shared. Email remains the No. 1 sharing channel. (Chadwick, Martin, Bailey) Learn to write messages that go viral.

    Sacred  Chambers  
    for Healing and Transformation

    What is the Sacred Chambers ?
    The Sacred Chambers is a phenomenon that started in India in the summer of 2013 when ordinary people all over India reported spontaneous miracles.   This phenomenon is part of the awakening of humanity which is making it possible for the Divine in its various forms to help people in their day to day life.
    Here is a video you can watch about the Sacred Chambers:

    There are approximately 150 Sacred Chambers around the world, 40 of which are in the US and Canada.

    The Sacred Chambers is free and open to everyone without regard to religious beliefs or spiritual path.   There is no prior knowledge or experience required. The Sacred Chambers is your Divine reaching out to you.

    The following miracles have been reported by people who have been in the Sacred Chambers serving Metro DC.  If you have experienced a Chambers miracle that you would like to share please email Elizabeth at
    " This is my story about my first Sacred Chamber experience.  I was invited by a friend and I was a little nervous as everything was new.  As I sat quietly in the Second Chamber, what came to me is that "deep secreds wuld be revealed." I expected that the "secret" was related to my ongoing emotional healing process from traumas of the past.  I was eagerly waiting for the revelation of this mysetery "secret".
    About a month went by and I had some disturbing physical sumptoms that promted me to see my doctor....I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer....and I had a hystorectomy.   The doctors found no cancer where they expected to find it....that was a miracle but there was another miracle...they found a very aggressive cancer in my ovary.  This cancer was discovered in its very early stages because of the surgery for a cancer that could not be found.  I believe that the ovarian cancer was the "secret" that was going to be revealed....the secred was given to me wrapped in Love and this Love continues to be present in every moment".,,,,MT
    "My first Sacred Chamber experience was very profound.  There was no expectation on my part, but I was hoping to have my recently prior 20/20 vision restored after losing most of my vision during a health crisis that lasted many months.  While driving 3.5 hours in the back seat of a car carrying four people to get to the Sacred Chambers, I couldn't really see what was going on outside the car windows and was asking whether it was snowing, etc.  People had been kind enough for several months to drive me wherever I needed and wanted to go, but it was so difficult to lose my independence so quickly.  After coming out of the Sacred Chambers, while by MacVx" rel="nofollow"> by MacVx" rel="nofollow"> by MacVx" rel="nofollow"> by MacVx" rel="nofollow"> by MacVx" rel="nofollow"> by MacVx" rel="nofollow"> by MacVx" rel="nofollow"> by MacVx" href="#11590054"> sharing our experience, it became noticeable that my sight was returning quickly as I could see eagles flying in circles over the home.  In the car on the way home, while sitting in the back seat, I was the first one to be able to read the road signs in the dark, and discovered that my vision was restored during the Sacred Chambers.  It was dramatic and profound, and gave me back my independence and quality of life.  My vision has continued to be as good as that day for the months since my visit to the Sacred Chambers.  Gratitude is with me all the time."  MH
    "I didn't know if anything happened when I first came of the Chambers and after sharing that and a few other things that did happen with our group, I felt relieved only to then have an old feeling of fear creep in when I spoke to my husband about doing the Chambers himself to which he uncharacteristically said "no thanks".  When I got home there was no fear left in my or guild or shame given to him about his choice.  I was able to share my experience and then hear him clearly when he said he had talked to our friend whose whife had passed that morning and that it had brought up stuff for him.  I was shocked that I was able to purely and cleanly show up for my husband...this time I didn't hav to fake it till I could make make...I was there and was able to show with peace and love to everyone, with a lack of judgement...this is huge for me."  HD
