At the 2017 Penn West Conference Pastors’ Retreat

The Penn West Conference: Engaging in Covenantal Relationships, and Sharing God’s Love with All!

Penn West Academy Licensed Ministers’ Refresher Course

The Penn West Academy Licensed Ministers’ Refresher Course this year is open to anyone (lay or authorized) who wishes to attend. We are encouraging broad participation in the event this year because we are focusing on the 2017 draft of the Manual on Ministry and proposed changes to authorized ministry. From the wider United Church of Christ, we are welcoming the Rev. Elizabeth Dilley from our Ministerial Excellence, Support, and Authorization Team and the Rev. Liddy Barlow from the Habakkuk Group that authored the new draft manual. The event will be held at Living Waters, 300 Camp Living Water Rd., Schellsburg PA, beginning at 7 PM on Friday, November 17 and ending on Saturday, November 18, at 3 PM. Registration forms are available here.

Mission Grants

The 2017 Mission Grants Awards will be made on Wednesday, November 1, and an awards ceremony will be held on Monday, November 20, at 11 AM in the chapel at First Reformed United Church of Christ, 312 S. Maple Avenue, Greensburg PA.
