WESLEY FOUNDATION @ PENN STATE
April 2016 Newsletter


We say goodbye to our Penn State students that we have been blessed to know, love, and serve. Read about our new Vision Statement created by our students and the Wesley Leadership Team with guidance from Rev. Ron Bell: Be Fed, Be Known, Be Loved, Welcome Home! Our interns give their reports on their experience. We traveled to Miami over Spring Break to learn and participate in many ministries to the poor in the area. We engaged in many other service projects and activities throughout the semester.

Our ministry outreach through the Abba Java Coffeehouse continues to impact students' lives as they see the love of Christ in action. Read some good articles from Abba Java students and volunteers. Take a peek at photos of some of our activities - CLICK HERE.

GOD'S CALLING EVENT FOR LAITY

Explore the Question: "God, are you calling me?"
 
Have you ever wondered "God, where / how is it you are calling me to serve?"

Do you know individuals being called to the ministry of a pastor within the United Methodist Church?

Have you wondered what is the difference in serving as an ordained elder, ordained deacon, a local pastor, and /or a certified lay minister?  

Do you know the various certified ministries honored by the United Methodist Church?


You are invited to join us Saturday, August 6, 2016, at St. Johns Newberry UMC in Williamsport for the God's Calling Event, presented by the Enlistment and Interpretation Committee of the Susquehanna Conference Board of the Ordained Ministry. This is a day apart for laity as we examine the ministry of the ordained elder, ordained deacon, local pastor, and certified ministries of the church. This event will include information in regard to scholarship and grant availability, educational requirements, seminaries, the role of leadership within the church, as well as "How do I know it is God Who Is Calling Me?"
 
This is an exciting opportunity for those discerning a call to ministry. If you are in the candidacy process, this is a requirement for certification, and a requirement for those in the process of becoming a certified lay minister.
 

Enroll now by downloading the God's Calling brochure found on the front page of the conference Web site at www.susumc.org OR go to the Board of Ordained Ministry Web site at scboom.org and link onto Resources.
