All Association Spring Meeting

In recent months, our Association Presidents have worked with our Justice & Witness Team to put together an inspiring program for our upcoming All Association Spring Meeting! Everyone from all of our Associations is invited to come to St. John’s United Church of Christ, 1230 Brownstown Road, Larimer PA 15647 on Saturday, March 18. The theme of our time together is, “What Does God Require of Us?” We will be sharing insights into issues of justice and witness in our time, and we hope to put those insights into action.

More details about the event are included in the attached brochure and registration form. We want you to select one of the breakout groups to attend. Descriptions of these are included in the flier. Do you have a passion to work for justice in Creation Care, Racial Justice, Hunger/Homelessness, The Middle East, Open & Affirming, Widening the Welcome/Mental Illness, and/or Fair Trade/Economic Justice? If so, you won’t want to miss this event. We hope to see you there!
