St. Paul's Day

"St. Paul's Day" will be held on June 25th on the campus of St. Paul's Continuing Care Community in Greenville PA. We are planning on having a bus leave from the Conference Office in Greensburg, with stops on the way. Activities for youth and adults are being planned. And, on Sunday, June 26th, we are encouraging our churches to celebrate the work of St. Paul's in their worship services. For a letter of invitation and registration forms, please click here. For a flyer about the day, please click here. Also, check out these videos, which are so well done and provide a wonderful window into "Life at St. Paul's": at the Ridgewood ; at the Villas ; at the Heritage. We hope to see you on June 25 in Greenville!

California, Here We Come!

The Mama’s and the Papa’s once sang, “California dreamin’ is becoming a reality.” That reality is coming true for Penn West Conference! We’re going to California – Pennsylvania, that is. The 54th Annual Gathering & Meeting of the Penn West Conference is scheduled to be held at California University of Pennsylvania from June 10-11, 2016. Mark your calendars and bring your surfboards! (Actually, leave your surfboards; the waves aren’t very high on the Mon.) Advance materials for the Annual Gathering & Meeting are available on this website here

We are looking forward to receiving three ambassadors from the United Church of Christ in the Philippines at our Conference Annual Gathering and Meeting June 10-11. Please see our recent newsletter articles for more information on this and to learn how you can support this important effort.
