Review of Ministerial Ethics

We need to pause occasionally and reflect on the ethical issues that we face everyday.  There will be an opportunity to do that in cooperation with Pittsburgh Presbytery.  Issues like boundaries, confidentiality, safety for children and youth, finances, etc. will be considered.  Please click on this link to indicate what would most interest you:  http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Z7V6QTZ.
Teach English This Summer in Ethiopia
If you are trained as a teacher you are needed to teach English in Ethiopia this summer for 4 weeks.  Presbyterian missionary, Rich Hansen, has sent an appeal for this help.  Contact the Presbytery office for more information.  Deadline is April 15.
Relevant Church in a Changing World
is the theme of this year’s World Mission Initiative Conference.  Participants will have three Keynote speakers (Rev. Dr. Hunter Farrell of the PCUSA World Missions Division, Dr. John Azumah a specialist in Christian-Islam relations, and Chris Shaw co-author of Jesus for President) and 18 workshops to choose from March 23-24 on the campus of Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.  Registration is $35 (meals are extra) and the deadline is March 9th.  As a sponsor church, pay $140 and send an unlimited number of members from your church – a great value!  For more information, visit http://www.worldmissioninitiative.org or pick up a flyer at the Presbytery Office.
