District Conference:
'Love Your Enemies'
Nov. 4 & 5 At Mill Creek
The 2016 Shenandoah District Conference opened on Friday, Nov. 4, with the annual Milestones in Ministry dinner that recognized all ministers who have served 50 years or more since ordination and all ministers on the five-year anniversary of ordination. Annual Conference Moderator Carol Scheppard (Lebanon) spoke.
District Conference Moderator David R. Miller (Montezuma) preached on the conference theme, "Love Your Enemies," at the opening worship service on Friday.
The major actions at Saturday's business session were the adoption by a 79.4 percent vote the "Framework for Congregations Out of Agreement with Annual and District Conference Decisions" and passage by 79.7 percent of the "Resolution on Same-Sex Marriage." The 285 delegates from 83 congregations also approved a $352,928 budget for 2017 and affirmed the leadership slate for 2017.
Additional information was included in the December/January Shenandoah Journal, which was distributed electronically on Nov. 30. Links to those features are available on the Publications page of this Web site.


Another Successful Auction!

The books are closed on the 2016 Shenandoah District Disaster Ministries Auction - and the great news is the two-day event in May raised $210,585.98! The grand total raised over the 24-year history of the auction now stands at more than $4.3 million!

And next year will be a major anniversary - the 25-year milestone! Plan now to take part on May 19 and 20, 2017.

But for this year, here are some details:

On Friday evening, 1,124 people dined on 75 gallons of oysters plus country ham and chicken - up from 1,050 last year. On Saturday morning, 465 breakfasts were served (265 omelets and 200 pancake breakfasts); last year, 445 people had breakfast at the auction. And at lunch on Saturday, 226 plate lunches were served, compared to 170 last year. Add to that all of the a la carte options, the ice cream, the donuts, the apple dumplings, etc., and it's a fair guess that no one left hungry.

Thanks to all who volunteered to make the auction a reality and to those who came to eat, bid, buy and enjoy what has become an annual reunion in support of Brethren Disaster Ministries.
