Witness and act for an end to violence against women and girls
On the 25th of each month – join people around the world in observing an Orange Day to work for an end to violence against women and girls. This call comes from Say NO – UNiTE to End Violence against Women, a social mobilization platform on ending violence against women and girls that is related to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon’s campaign, UNiTE to End Violence against Women. (http://endviolence.un.org/ )
First Presbyterian Church, 401 Main Street, Watsontown will hold a Longaberger Basket Bingo on Sunday, August 16, 2015 at 2:00 pm. Doors open at 12:30 pm and the Early Bird game takes place at 1:45 pm. Tickets are available at the church office Monday – Thursday from 9:00 am to noon for a $20 donation.
There will be food available and there is a raffle and a Chinese Auction.
The summer is slowly fading away and soon the kids
will be heading back to school! To send the kids
back to school we will be holding our blessing of the backpacks
August 16th during worship. Please bring
your backpacks to church to be blessed. School survival kits will also be given out as a reminder that we are all are praying for you and a successful start to the new school year!
Stuff the Bus
Once again, we’re joining a number of local
businesses to provide school supplies to children in
need in the Berwick and Bloomsburg school districts.
Residents are starting their school shopping early as
part of a community wide backpack donation drive
called Stuff the Bus. Donated backpacks and
schools supplies will be given to local students who
qualify for free or reduced lunches.
This year marks the sixth year for Stuff the Bus, which
gathered more than 500 backpacks last year.
Donations will be accepted until August 17th.
Our goal has been increased each year.
Last year we had 530 backpacks!
I think we can beat that!
Backpacks get delivered to the entire Berwick
School District and then surrounding schools/shelters
in need. School officials will distribute the backpacks
to qualifying students.
Visit the church every Sunday morning at 320 Market Street, Berwick PA
Out Of The Darkness…Into The Light
A group of Presbyterian women will travel to the San Francisco Bay Area in California, September 22–30, 2016, for PW’s fourth USA Mission Experience. They will connect concerns raised by past USA Mission Experiences and Global Exchanges with similar issues in the Bay Area. Participants will encounter challenges to God’s promise of a beloved community and witness to the faithful work being done by our sisters in the San Francisco and San Jose presbyteries.
The USA Mission Experience equips women with an understanding of the region’s history and culture, the existing ministry of the church and the challenges faced by local women and children. On this trip, participants will
- learn about human trafficking, domestic violence and immigration issues;
- develop skills to advocate for immigrants and survivors of human trafficking;
- identify resources women can use to help eliminate slavery and domestic violence;
- examine the myths and realities of immigration; and
- explore personal immigration stories.
Applications are due to your PW in the Synod moderator by July 15, 2015. Download an application now!
Perspectives on the World Christian Movement
The Presbytery of Northumberland is proud to help sponsor a 15 week Bible Course that will help transform your understanding of being a disciple of Jesus Christ. This same class is offered at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary as an elective for its students.
Location: Northway Presbyterian Church, 1520 Northway Road, Williamsport, PA 17701.
Date & Time: Tuesday, (6:00-9:00) – September 6, 2015-December 15, 2015
To register and pay go to: http://www.perspectives.org
The Perspectives course is a biblical, historical and cultural analysis of the impact of the world Christian movement, with specific attention given to strategy and the imperative of bringing the gospel to groups that have yet received it.
The material covered in Perspectives follows four sections:
1. Biblical: A study of the Bible exploring God’s eternal three-fold purpose of kingdom victory against evil, redemption and blessing for the nations, and global glory and worship for Himself.
2. Historical: A study of how God’s purpose has moved relentlessly from Abraham’s day until the present moment. It looks at different eras of history, pioneers of the world Christian movement, and the task remaining.
3. Cultural: A study of how culture interfaces with the spread of the gospel and of the incarnation as a model of missionary humility.
4. Strategic: A study of current world need, and the goal of spontaneous multiplication of churches in unreached areas of the world. It looks at what it means to live a life integrated with Christ’s global purpose.
There are four enrollment types:
• Key Reader: Students attend class, read a few key articles each week, and complete five personal responses (reflections on what they are learning) throughout the semester. 4.5 Continuing Education Credits will be applied for Teaching and Ruling Elders
• Certificate Level: earns a certificate of completion from the US Center for World Mission. The work involves 2-3 hours reading per week, with weekly homework over the reading, and a project due at the end of the class. 4.5 Continuing Education Credits will be applied for Teaching and Ruling Elders who complete the certificate level.
• Undergraduate Credit is 3-5 hours reading per week, with weekly homework over the reading, 2 exams, and a paper (10-15 pages) due at the end of the class.
• Graduate Credit is 5-7 hours of reading per week, with weekly quizzes on the reading, 2 exams, and a paper 18-20 pages due at the end of the class.
How much does Perspectives cost?
Key Reader and Certificate Level: $285.00 or Early Bird registration $260.00 by August 25th
