To pause this marquee hover your cursor on it.....Many thanks to our God for the blessings this past weekend at Men's Retreat! The food, fellowship, sportsmanship, labor, music, and worship of Christian men both young and old, laymen and clergy, was surely a foretaste of glory to come. The spiritual challenge by Rev. Lynn Cirigliano to become "Disciplers" was truly iron sharpening iron, and so inspirational. Even our work project was an act of group devotion to God, who guarded us while installing a complete metal roof in five hours; to God be the glory!.....Annual Conference is just around the corner, Friday-Saturday, Sept. 20-21, 2019. The location is East Smethport United Christian Church, 18399 Rt 6, East Smethport, PA 16730, with Rev. Young as host pastor. Line officers (Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Treasurer, Secretary) will meet at the church Thursday at 6 p.m. Supper will be provided. The Conference agenda can be downloaded and printed from the Documents menu. IMPORTANT NOTE: This year we are testing a change to the Friday schedule. Last year we had a tornado warning for Friday evening so we made calls and moved the evening service to mid-afternoon. Early dismissal was so well received, attendees felt we should consider it every year. So as a trial this year, on Friday we will not have supper or an evening program. Ministers should note that ordinations and credentials will be conferred in the Saturday morning service......We will be re-publishing the Association's newsletter, the MESSENGER, throughout the next year. Rev. Young will fill in as editor until a replacement can be found. Much of the newsletter content is about the people and activities in each of our churches, so please begin to forward details via text or email to Rev. Young at 814-558-8086 or revayoung@hotmail.com. Past issues of the Messenger can be found on the Documents menu.....
