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!

PRAYER SESSIONS OFFERED IN THE CHAPEL
We've had many good reviews concerning the Bible Study on Prayer. Members shared the many ways they felt that the study had affected their prayer lives. One of the results of the Bible Study on Prayer is weekly prayer sessions starting June 13th, 2018 to be held in the Chapel. These prayer sessions will be held on Wednesday mornings each week at 10 a.m.. Sessions will last approximately 45 minutes and will consists of requested prayers, prayers for our congregation, church leaders, pastor, our community, our country and the world in which we live. All are welcome to participate in any and all sessions - no need to sign up or buy a book...just come to pray. The church family is encouraged to place prayer requests in the Prayer Box located at the Visitor's Center in the lobby. All requests will be held up in prayer by the prayer session group. Great Things Happen When God's People Pray!
