It’s the Philly Association’s 50th Birthday!
“So what,” you ask? “Only one of those dates or events that church geeks care about or attend,” someone else mutters…
The Spring Meeting of the Association will feature the Rev. Susan Smith as our preacher. She will speaking about how she helped a congregation revitalize from 5 people to a lively congregation of over 300. (She will also be our guest in morning worship on Sunday.)
We will receive a new congregation, Grace Christian Fellowship from the Southwest section of the city, into the United Church of Christ. There choir will contribute to worship.
An important conversation about the future of the Pennsylvania Southeast Conference will occur. It’s important that the Interim Conference Minister, the Rev. Judith Youngman, hear the perspectives of the the faithful in Philly.
Maybe you’ve never gone to an Association meeting. Maybe you went once a long time ago. Maybe you want to go this time! If so, please speak with Beth or Gerry or me.
It’s happening this Sunday, beginning at 3:30 p.m. at Bethany UCC, 6545 Rising Sun Ave., Philadelphia, PA 19111.
