US National Conference of the United Brethren Church
Lancaster, PA on July 12-15, 2017
This will be a historic National Conference for our denomination, since it comes on our 250th anniversary. It was in 1767, at a barn in Lancaster, Pa., that Martin Boehm and William Otterbein clasped hands and said, “We are brethren.” That was our beginning. We will celebrate that event, and the 250 years that followed, this summer. College Park is planning on taking a van to Lancaster. If you’re interested in attending, please pick up information at the Welcome Center, and contact the church office.
Ladies Monday Night Bible Study: The Ladies will be studying One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp. Drawing heartbreaking beauty out of the simplest details Ann Voskamp teaches about grace. One Thousand Gifts is a celebration of grace and a recognition of the power of gratitude. It is a dare to live fully right where you are. Join us as we accept the dare. Meeting on Monday nights at 6:30 – 8:30, beginning March 20th and running through April 24th. The price of the books is $7.00. Sign up at the Welcome Center. Questions? Contact Flav Ann Karst, Natalie Brautigam or the church office.
This Bible study is open to all ladies of the church.
