You are Part of God’s Work in the World~Psalm 19

missions-2015-header

Save the Dates! Please mark your calendars now for the 28th annual Missions Conference weekend Friday, April 17th to Sunday, April 19th. We will have activities for the whole family to enjoy!

  • Catered barbecue dinner on Friday night
  • Programs throughout the day on Saturday
  • Themed pot luck supper of South American and Asian Food on Saturday night
  • Missionary speakers, children’s programs and wonderful music.

This Sunday, April 12th, Suzanne Schmid Spencer will be our special pre-conference speaker. At a time in life when she was looking forward to retiring from her career as a research gerontologist and assisted living administrator, Suzanne was surprised to hear a call to pastoral ministry. She served as Director of Congregational Care at Woodlake UMC near her home in Midlothian VA, as Director of Christian Education at Fairview UMC in Danville VA, and as pastor of New Hope Charge on Virginia’s Eastern Shore. She found a love of mission as a girl under the discipleship of Miss Jean Craig, who served as a Virginia Conference missionary to China and Korea before returning to Richmond to serve local churches. Suzanne has served on a short-term mission team to Mexico and on six Pender teams to Peru. Now retired, she joins her husband, Dr. John Spencer in opening their home in the Valley as a place of rest and renewal for pastors and missionaries.
