Fall 2019 Session

Methodists United (EPA Mission Link in Shamokin area) is a partnership of 11 United Methodist congregations located in the greater Shamokin area in the North District. We are a team of laity and clergy with the motto “doing better ministry together”. To better serve the local Churches, Methodists United partnered with the EPA Conference several years ago to offer the opportunity to study to become Christ Servant Ministers. We extend this opportunity, not only to our local Churches, but also to the North District and Eastern Pennsylvania Conference.
