Shenandoah Journal

The April/May 2019 issue of the Shenandoah Journal was an electronic publication distributed on Mar. 31, featuring the Share-A-Meal program that raises money for disaster ministry through the annual auction. Nine people were interviewed about their experiences hosting and attending dinners. There was also an article from the 1982 Messenger about a local pioneer in the District's disaster response, Harold Wampler.

Shenandoah Update

The weekly Shenandoah Update, distributed exclusively by email, includes all of the pertinent information that formerly was featured in the Pastors Memo. We ask every congregation to identify someone in the congregation who has email and will be responsible for printing the Update for the pastor, if the pastor does not have email access.

The monthly Prayer Calendar and District events calendar are linked with the Update on the third Thursday of each month and are accessible here on the Web site. Information for the Update is due by noon on Wednesday in order to be considered for inclusion in the Thursday distribution. Thank you!

Here is information from recent Updates:
