Ohio Council of Churches 100th Anniversary Event!

If you would like to register to attend this event, please click here!

The Ohio Conference is proud to co-sponsor The Ohio Council of Churches (OCC) 100th anniversary event. The OCC remains devoted in its 100th year to tackling the problems of racism through ecumenical partnership and vision. We in the Ohio Conference had already begun engaging with the OCC in discussions around hosting an event focused on ending racism; this event is one of the fruits of that discernment.

For this event, with our assistance, the OCC has lined up workshops, worship, celebrations, and reflections around the work to fight racism. Our commitment to working with ecumenical partners like the OCC to arrange for continuing anti-racism work in our communities is just one of the ways your Conference is offering service to our members and churches.

With that commitment in mind, we have engaged the Pulitzer Prize-Winning writer, and Miami Herald columnist, Leonard Pitts, Jr., to deliver a keynote address at the OCC 100th anniversary gathering on September 6, 2019, at Methodist Theological School in Ohio (MTSO). Mr. Pitts, in this quote from his personal web site, is to his core a writer. "In a career that now spans 43 years, Leonard Pitts, Jr. has worked as a columnist, a college professor, a radio producer and a lecturer. But those are just the job titles. If you ask him what he does – what he is – he'll tell you now what he would have told you then. He is a writer." He is a writer deeply committed to holding up to the light issues of injustice.

We are excited to invite you to attend this event in September by registering here through the MTSO web site. Simply click the red button below to be redirected to the registration page. The full cost for the day is $50, with discounts for seniors and students, as well as the option to register only for the keynote address with Leonard Pitts, Jr.

2020 VBS will be Virtual! The team at GO! Curriculum has designed a 3-day backyard VBS that is custom made for churches and families during the COVID19 shutdown. We have thought through every aspect of the VBS experience and made it so user friendly that any family can easily do it at home. With minimal preparation, easy to follow instructions, and a video that leads kids step-by-step through each day, BOLT VBS is the perfect quarantine-friendly solution for your church or family. After months of virtual learning, many kids are already experiencing screen-fatigue. With that in mind, BOLT has struck the perfect balance between video content and in-person games and activities. TO REGISTER: EMAIL: dir.ed@stpetersamherst.org and say you would like to participate. Please include a mailing address so we can mail you an information packet which will include the link to the parent portal. You may do this VBS at your pace and convenience. 3 days in a row, 1 day a week...however you would
