Shenandoah Journal

The April/May issue of the Shenandoah Journal was an electronic publication distributed on Monday, April 3, previewing the 25th annual Shenandoah District Disaster Ministries Auction. Included were feature stories on the creators of two of the most sought-after items at each auction - a wood carving of a flicker by Ned Conklin and a quilt, this time a beautiful "Faith Hope Love" quilt made especially for the 25th anniversary. Also included was a reflection by District Executive Minister John Jantzi on distinguishing valued plants from the weeds.

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 April 20 edition included a feature story about the beginnings of the Shenandoah District Disaster Ministries Auction. See the link to that story below.

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!
