Grace and peace to you in the name of Jesus Christ!
13 June 2019
Dear Peace in Zion Congregation,
Grace and Peace to you in the name of our Savior Jesus Christ. As many of you know the Reed family, I am sharing Chris’ obituary with you and letting you know that you are invited to attend to share your condolences and memories of Chris. Please keep the Reed family in your prayers during this most difficult time. We have several people on our prayer list who are in need of additional prayers. Please pray for Paul Michener who is going on hospice care; Doris Little who is going through chemo treatments and Helen Daub, daughter to Butch Daub, who’s back was broken in a car accident. We appreciate your prayers for these friends and all who are on our prayer list. I also want to let you know that I am attending General Synod, the national gathering of the United Church of Christ as a delegate for our Pennsylvania Southeast Conference. I will be away June 19- 29. Should you have a pastoral emergency during this time, please be in touch with Pastor Paul Chapman from St. Luke’s Lutheran Church at 610.754.7762. Paul Hightower is also a delegate for our conference and will be attending General Synod and Robin will be a visitor. Please keep them and all the delegates attending in your prayers as they travel to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to discern the work of the church for the next two years, as they worship together and attend workshops. We will also be voting on whether or not Rev. John Dorhauer, our current General Minister and President of the UCC will continue for a second term. If you would like to know more about General Synod and the resolutions coming before the delegation, I invite you to check out the General Synod link at www.synod2019.org/en/uccsynod2019. You can also access it through the UCC website at ucc.org. As always, please share this information with our congregants who do not have email, especially since this information is time sensitive. Thank you.
Peace, Pastor Barb
