Highlights From

2014 District Conference

Jan Orndorff, moderator, set the tone for Shenandoah District Conference 2014 when she placed the District's historic gavel onto the towel folded over a basin on the worship center and explained that the symbol of leadership (the gavel) would take its place in the Church of the Brethren's symbol of service (the basin and towel).

Her conference theme, "The Return of the Word," was infused into each segment of the conference - worship, song, prayer and business.

A full report on the conference will be included in the December2014/January2015 Shenandoah Journal, scheduled for publication electronically the week of Nov. 24.

By the numbers:

Friday worship attendance was 294, and the offering for the Nigeria Crisis Fund is approaching $4,000 with more expected. That amount will be matched dollar-for-dollar!

Saturday attendance was 295, including 242 delegates from 79 congregations. The Saturday offering for district ministries was $2,345.

In addition, some 30 youth and advisors were part of the conference, attending worship, enjoying an overnight lock-in, doing service projects at Brethren Woods and reporting to the full conference about National Youth Conference and their District Conference experience.

Cole Scrogham, 2015 moderator, and David R. Miller, moderator-elect, were consecrated at the close of the conference.

Information about the Milestones in Ministry dinner, recognizing ordained pastors at five-year milestones in their ministry, has been posted on the Ministry page of this Web site.

Beautiful Weather!

Wonderful Results!

Blessed with gorgeous weather, the 2014 Shenandoah District Disaster Ministries Auction successfully celebrated its 22nd year May 16 and 17.
 
We ate!
  • 1,023 people enjoyed the oyster/ham/chicken dinner on Friday (down just a bit from 2013's 1,060). Even late-arriving oysters taste great!
  • On Saturday, 280 diners had an omelet breakfast (up from 270 last year) and 152 chose pancakes for breakfast (down from 157 a year ago.
  • Saturday's plate lunch was served to 198 folks (up from 146 in 2013).
And we supported Brethren Disaster Ministries with our donations and our cash, checks and credit cards. 
 
Net proceeds as of June 15: just under $197,000!
 
The bottom line: a great weekend of hard work, a lot of fun and significant support for Brethren Disaster Ministries!
 
Thanks to all!
