Pennsylvania Southeast Conference Annual Spring Meeting

Friday, June 3, 2022, 9:00am - Saturday, June 4, 2022, 5:30pm

     “Living the Jesus Life — Contemplatives in Action” is the theme of this year’s Annual Spring Conference meeting to be held at West Chester University.  We will meet in person for a time of soulful recovery and revival amid the exhaustion created by the pandemic and the new realities to which we’ve had to adapt.  Spiritual practices (prayer, meditation, scripture study) and active living (ministering to the needs of our communities) unite us for a weekend of living together the Jesus life.

     As Conference Minister Bill Worley says, "Living the Jesus Life is simply about joining with Jesus’ teaching, healing, and solidarity with others in a life of prayer, worship, and intimate experiences of the Holy.  Jesus often went away from the busyness of the crowds to be at one with God.  This enabled his public witness, formed disciples, created inclusive community, exemplified self-giving love, and nonviolent resistance.  His life of integrated contemplation and action is the model for our living and our Annual Meeting.  Spiritual practices (prayer, meditation, scripture study) and active living (ministering to the needs of our communities) unite us for a weekend of living together the Jesus life."

     For more information, please contact our delegates: Jon Henning and Geri Gammel.

Hybrid: Live StreamPhone StreamFacebook Live, & In-person
COVID Safety Precaution Level for this Sunday = Moderate

     Pentecost is the day that commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon Jesus' disciples as recorded in the New Testament of the Bible.  It also marks the birth of the Christian Church. 

     It was on the 50th day after Easter when the Holy Spirit descended upon the apostles as they were praying together.  They received the Spirit's gift of speaking in various languages (tongues), and they immediately began preaching about Jesus Christ to the Jewish people who had gathered in masses  in Jerusalem from all over the world.  The crowds were in the city for the Feast of Shavuot.

Vacation Bible Study (VBS)

Monday, June 13, 2022 to Thursday, June 16, 2022 from 5:30 - 8:00pmLogo Primary

     Vacation Bible School is coming!  This joint event, sponsored by the churches of St. Paul, Zion and St. Daniel, will take place the second full week in June.  It will be an evening event that starts at 5:30pm and concludes at 8:00pm at St. Paul's UCC Church Building.  This year's program is entitled Discovery on Adventure Island.  Youth from 3 years old and up to about age 11 (those entering 6th grade in the fall) are invited to attend.

     Discovery on Adventure Island VBS invites everyone to explore the ways that God's great light shines in the world, and shows them how they can reflect that light in their own lives.  From a whimsical lighthouse on an enchanted island, Explorers (the children) are guided by a Lighthouse Keeper on an exciting quest to find five mysterious Infinity Lanterns (Love, Trust, Faith, Joy, Hope) to help light their way.  Using map coordinates from their Reference Book (the Bible), children discover clues to finding each Lantern while learning how God's light shines in the lives of familiar biblical characters in Old and New Testament stories.

     To register for this event please click on the this Discovery on Adventure Island VBS link.  It will take you to pdf registration form.  Please fill it out, print it and send it to: St. Paul's UCC, 301 W. Penn Avenue, Robesonia, PA 19551.  You may also save the completed form on your computer and email it to the church at office@sprucc.org.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact the church.  Leave a message if no one answers and the VBS director, Geri Gammel, will call you back.

EagleScoutPatch 03Eagle Scout Award Presentation 

Sunday, June 26, 2022 at 6:00pm

     Steven Motz, a member of St. Paul's UCC, completed his Eagle Scout rank in December 2019, but due to the coronavirus has not yet had the opportunity to have a ceremony to be awarded the rank.

     His Eagle Scout project was setting up the Live Stream technology, software, and hardware upon which we so greatly rely during this pandemic.

     This was previously rescheduled from May 2020, to the summer of 2020, and then to May 2021, then fall 2021, the winter 2021, and now winter/spring of 2022 as we were hoping for a day when the pandemic numbers are low to have a presentation celebration.  Finally the pandemic numbers are low.  A presentation celebration will take place on Sunday, June 26, 2022 at 6:00pm.  

     Congratulations Steven Motz!!
