LEARNINGS FROM AFRICA!
A Talk/Slideshow Presentation...
The Women’s Ministry has invited Pastor Marla Abe to come and speak to our congregation about her many experiences as a Brethren teacher in Haiti, Spain, the Dominican Republic and in the Great Lakes Africa. Her passions came from childhood and she was instrumental in helping start the Church of the Brethren in Rwanda and worked with the Brethren in the Democratic Republic of the Congo to help form the Great Lakes Africa churches. She is the fourth child, born to missionaries in Lassa, Nigeria and came to the United States as a 10 year old child. She and her husband Jim, at the moment, serve as co-pastors at the Carlisle COB but will be retiring as of March 2019. Marla has quite a story to tell and we are looking forward to her talk which will be accompanied with slides of the places she has lived and worked. Marla will be talking with us Saturday, March 30th at 10:30 a.m. in our church chapel. This presentation is free of charge and open to everyone - men, women, and youth. Her talk will last approximately 30-45 minutes followed by a question and answer period. Pastor Marla Abe is a vibrant and capable individual with many talents as you will realize. We look forward to hosting her as she speaks on the topic of “Learnings from Africa.” Let us give her a warm and hearty welcome by attending and bringing a friend!
NOTE: Marla gave a wonderful presentation to approximately twenty attendees. All felt she was very informative.

Great Things Happen When God's People Pray!
ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL TO BE COMBINED FOR THE SUMMER
Adult Sunday School for the months of June, July and August will be combined this year. A different teacher will be teaching on her chosen subject each month.
Carolyn Wolff will be the teacher for June; Stephanie Behnke will teach in July; and Sandy Koziel will be the teacher in August. We will return to regular Sunday School in September.
This is an opportunity to fellowship with members of other classes and experience different teachers and their teaching style. We hope all of you plan to attend all the classes this summer. See you there!!
