The Special Issues Committee will hold a conversation on Tuesday, July 12 from 7-8:30 PM at the East Main Church in Grove City on denominational issues.  There will be two parts:

  1. A presentation by Dr. John Burgess and discussion of what we believe about Jesus Christ and how this relates to denominational issues.
  2. A review of “frequently asked questions” so that everyone has accurate information on what is happening in the denomination.

URGENT! Now Is a Critical Moment for Prayer for the Sudan
Our friends in the south Sudan have voted overwhelmingly to form a new nation of the South Sudan on July 9.  However, the government in the north is doing everything it can to disrupt that event.  Presently there are atrocities occurring daily in the Nuba Mountains town of Kadugli.  This is near the north-south border and a place where a team from Shenango Presbytery (including Jere Donovan) visited in 2004.  Please pray for the U.S. special convoy to Sudan, Princeton Lyman, and all in positions of power that another tragedy like Darfur does not happen.
Are You Going to Minneapolis?
Several people are going to the Fellowship PC(USA) http://www.fellowship-pcusa.org/ on August 25-26.  Please be in touch with Dave Dawson if you are going at david.dawson@pcusa.org so that we can keep in touch.
