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!
After 110 Years, Our Church Receives
Friday, March 29 we will be showing the movie “Miracle” in the Junior High Room at 6:30pm. “Miracle” is the inspiring true story behind one of the greatest moments in sports history - the 1989 United States ice hockey team’s triumphant Olympic victory against the Soviet Union. Starting with a handpicked group of twenty-six undisciplined kids, Coach Herb Brooks coached them to play like they never played before, and turned twenty of them into a team that believed they could achieve the I achievable - and in the process, United a nation with a new feeling of hope. “Do you believe in miracles?

CHURCH FOOD DRIVE SUCCESSFUL
The Women's Ministry of the Waynesboro Church of the Brethren sponsored a Food Drive during the month of February to be given to the Waynesboro Community and Human Services. There was an abundance of food donated by the congregation to WCHS.
WCHS provides a central location for the provision and coordination of a wide variety of human services needed by low income residents of the Waynesboro and Greencastle area. A big THANK YOU to our congregation who once again went above and beyond in their donating.
