Irene McFadden, the Mission Chairperson for the Eastern District writes, I bring you good tidings of a different joy. It was such a blessing to be able to meet the needs of every ministry that requested funds in 2011. As a district we were able to support campus ministries in Pittsburgh, Rochester and Buffalo, ministries to children in Pittsburgh, Rochester and Buffalo, as well as Camp Pioneer. This was accomplished through the generosity of you, the members of the Eastern District, as your churches pledged and sent funds. ‘Praise God from Whom ALL blessings flow!'”
Camp Pioneer is holding Reconciler Training February 7-8, 2012. The Coaching Practicum prepares leaders – pastors, elders, teachers, administrators, and parents to guide other people in their conflicts through coaching one-on-one. Almost everyone can benefit from this training, since all of us at all times give advice to others on responding to conflict. More information and registration forms are located on the glass case in the chapel.
