Like to dream about creative ways of spending money? As a church in Allegheny Mennonite Conference, UMC recently was gifted with over $31,000 as part of the sale of the International Guest House (IGH) in Washington DC. We are encouraged to use the funds for God’s work of hospitality, welcome, peace, and justice as part of the IGH legacy. A few have stepped forward to be a part of an ad hoc committee to learn about the needs in Centre County community, educate our UMC community, and solicit and evaluate ideas. We welcome a few more to join us. Want to be a part? Contact Kate for more information.

MennoMedia is publishing an Anabaptist Bible in an effort to help readers understand what it means to read Scripture through the distinctive “Christ-centered” lens of the Anabaptist tradition. They are looking for study groups to submit reflections on assigned scriptural passages. We at UMC can be one of those groups? Interested? Click HERE to learn more, and talk to Kate.
