There are no greater treasures than the highest human qualities such as compassion, courage and hope. Not even tragic accident or disaster can destroy such treasures of the heart.~Daisaku Ikeda

Notice: Email Spoofing & Fake Texts

Email spoofing is once again at work using conference leaders as the sender. Remember, spoofing is when the sender of the email forges (spoofs) someone’s email address, so that the message appears to come from a legitimate email address. Also, if anyone receives texts asking for a favor and requesting the purchase of gift cards to address some need, they are most certainly part of a periodic, widespread scam. Such texts have been reported by persons identifying the senders as Eastern PA Conference clergy, including district superintendents.

Please do not respond to any emails or text messages from your District Superintendent requesting money, your time, an email response, etc. Do not respond to these fake texts. Delete them immediately. Learn more…
