Hot Off THE PRESS: December Issue Released!

The Press

The Conference Council on Young Adult Ministries (CCYAM) releases its first newsletter, THE PRESS. The purpose of THE PRESS is to give young people a platform and the liberty to witness and minister to other young people in a form that is relatable and perceptible. Eight contributors made this debut possible by sharing powerful and encouraging stories. In this issue you will find:

  • CCYAM’s journey out of the wilderness and through its Inaugural Year
  • Our reactions to the born-again rapper, Ja Rule, being “In Love with a Church Girl”
  • The ‘Skinny’ on Worship and other devotionals
  • Encouragement for Money and Future-Minded People

EPA Conference Youth Ministry News

Conference Council on Youth Ministries needs YOU!

" Eastern Pennsylvania CCYM is a God-driven team of student leaders connecting youth in churches with others throughout their region in Fellowship, Service, and Christian Love"

The Conference Council on Youth Ministries (CCYM) has a large task ahead of them and we need your help!  We can have a total of 36 youth and 12 adults on CCYM, and currently have 5 youth and 3 adults serving.  The youth on this team fully believe it is their ministry to reach out to the youth in our local churches.  However, without a larger representation of the youth in our conference, we can't move on!

Do you know a youth or adult that may be interested in serving on CCYM?  Would you like more information?  You can go to our new (under construction) website. Fill out the form and we will respond to you.   www.epaumcyoungpeople.org

UPCOMING EVENTS:

Protection of Children

Greetings to the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference,
One of the important responsibilities of our churches is the maintenance of a Safe Sanctuaries policy. This newsletter is full of helpful information. Please read this carefully and make sure your church is on board.
Bishop Peggy Johnson

Greetings:
The recent headlines about child sexual abuse allegations at Penn State and Syracuse Universities have reminded us abuse can happen anywhere.  Our Conference requires all churches to have a Safe Sanctuaries Policy in place.  It is a lot of work, but considering the damage to one victim it is a worth it.  Of course as serious as committing child sexual abuse is, failing to report accusations of abuse is every bit as serious.
