Click here to read the electronic copy of the letter which the ruling elders of NWPC sent to the staff and congregation of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C.
Emanuel A.M.E. is the site of the recent killing of nine persons at a Bible study by a young man who said he wished them dead because they were black. Relatives of the slain persons have provided us with a striking reminder of God’s call to forgive those who trespass against us.
Elders present in worship on June 21 signed the letter although Session enthusiastically agreed that a letter should be sent. Please continue to pray for our sisters and brothers in Christ in Charleston.
Volunteers are Needed!
Anderson auditorium was built in 1957/58 by volunteers under the supervision of Ted Pollock. Over the years maintenance and improvements to the building have been done mostly by volunteer crews. Once again there are some things which need attention.
Immediately following conference this summer, Ted Pollock’s son, Ed, will be leading a crew of volunteers to address these needs. Depending on the number of volunteers and the weather, this work is expected to take 4 to 6 days.
Local churches are also being asked to consider bringing in a meal to feed the volunteers.
