David Dawson Will Attend Mission Historians Conference
One hundred years ago this week 1200 delegates were meeting in Edinburgh, Scotland for the World Missionary Conference. This was the most significant conference in the modern Protestant Missionary Movement. For the past eight years, Dave has used study leave to attend the Yale-Edinburgh Group http://www.library.yale.edu/div/yaleedin.htm of mission historians. This year he will present a paper (July 2) on the significance of the 1910 conference and its relationship to mission issues today including short term mission trips, the Missional church conversations and our partnership with the Sudan. Click here if you would like to see the paper.
Wish your Youth Group would get more out of their summer mission trip? Wish you could encourage young adults in your church to seek Godly careers? Need something exciting for those facing retirement? Wish you could connect in a more real way with what is going on in world mission?

Fall Sunday School is Coming! Would you like to think about what curriculum you will be using?
The fall We Believe resources have arrived and are on display in the Presbytery Resource Center. There are exciting materials for teaching all ages groups from Wee Believe for toddlers (from 18 months to 3 years) and preschool age children, younger and older elementary students, youth and adults.
In addition to the Present Word Uniform Lesson quarterlies, there is a completely new adult series for Presbyterians called Being Reformerd: Faith Seeking Understanding, edited by Don McKim. There are five studies in this program with both a leaders’ and participants’ book for each. They are: Theology for Presbyterians, Discipleship: the Way of Jesus, Islam and Christianity, John Calvin, and Worship as Evangelism. Margaret will be happy to answer questions there or come to your church to tell you more about these resources.
