United Methodists from around the world will gather to lament for the racism in our midst. We will also reflect on Psalm 22, have a time of communion and hear God’s call to join in the work of dismantling racism and pressing on to freedom for all.
“Dismantling Racism: Pressing on to Freedom” is a multi-level initiative throughout the church to implement a sustained and coordinated effort to dismantle racism and promote collective action to work toward racial justice.

Do you have or know someone that has a preschooler and would love to start their child’s educational journey in a Christian environment?

The program prides itself in teaching children about Jesus through Bible Stories, prayer, songs and Christian morals and values.

For more information call the Church office, 570-729-7011. Please feel free to pass this on to anyone who may be interested. Don’t wait. The time to register for the 20/21 school year is now.

Every year the Northeast Jurisdiction UMVIM holds a Mission Academy event.  This year it's gone online!  One of the offerings is a multiday (2 hour each) VIM training.  Please let me know if you're going to participate in this or any of the other classes.  They are quality offerings as the classes are being taught by UMVIM Coordinators from our Jurisdiction, UMCOR, and Global Ministries.  

Feel free to share this with your churches and your mission groups.  

It's for already trained VIM and those who aren't yet!

The classes are free with an option to donate toward UMVIM.
