Our Penn West Conference Annual Meeting will be held at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown from Friday, May 29 to Saturday, May 30. Our theme is “Thriving in Unexpected Places” and our presenter is the Rev. David Schoen from our national office in Cleveland. David will be sharing with us news about such exciting programs as New Beginnings and Mission Insite. We will also plan to have exciting video Bible studies and enlivening worship.

United Church of Christ General Synod

The thirtieth General Synod of the United Church of Christ will be held from Friday, June 26 through Tuesday, June 30. The theme of our time is “Unexpected Places.” One of the highlights of our time together will be encountering God in unexpected ways at our worship service on Sunday, June 28, at 3 PM. Our Associations are in the process of putting together bus transportation from our Associations to Cleveland for the day! We are also planning to elect a new General Minister & President for our church, and a candidate, the Rev. John Dorhauer, Conference Minister of the Southwest Conference, has been named. Our delegation from Penn West is really excited about Synod this year. Please keep the work of our national church in your prayers!

Please remember that our National Youth Event is scheduled to be held from July 26-29, 2016 at Disneyworld in Orlando, Florida!

"God is Still Speaking"

Welcome to the PWC Website!

The Penn West Conference website is a platform for sharing the mutual ministries and missions (that our churches and members carry forward) of God. Members and visitors will find insights and resources, documents and materials, our resource center and catalog, Ministry Teams, links to local PWC church websites, and more. We are linked to the national site as well as other important ministry sites. As we move forward, we will have Annual Meeting information and registration online.

Combined with the periodic PWC eNewsletter (for current information and updates), churches and members will have greater access than ever before. Moving to electronic media is a challenge for the reader and for the originator. We will learn together how we can become collaborators in God’s Ministry and in God’s Message. Join in this by sending in articles about your church life and all the emails of members in your church.



Rev. David Ackerman
Conference Minister
