JUNE IS PRIDE MONTH. SPC will celebrate our LGBTQIA+ community with an interfaith service on Saturday, June 29, 10:00 a.m. to kick off Panhandle Pride 2019, (which begins at 11:00 a.m.) SPC will have a pride table; please contact Jeananne Stine at office@shepherdstownpresbyterian.org if you can take a shift.

TEEN WEEK, June 23-27. This year’s theme is Justice for All! Christians Respond to Injustice. We have a great week planned for youth 6-12 grades. Cost: TBA (no more than $75 which includes lunch, drinks and snacks). During the week we will explore social justice and how Christians can respond to injustice. Some of the things we will look at are economic injustice, immigration, and interfaith understanding. We will do activities that build on faithful responses to injustice including going to Immanuel House in Martinsburg, meeting youth from ADAMS Mosque, and possibly going to a church sponsored Refugee Center. Fun stuff too: swimming, picnic, ice cream sundaes! For more information or to sign up, contact Rev. Dee-Ann Dixon or UMC office 304-876-2362, nsumcpastor@frontiernet.net or Rev. Karen Erskine-Valentine or St. Peters Lutheran Church 304-876-6771 reversk@gmail.com. We are also in need of adult chaperones & drivers for some field trips. Please contact us if you are able to help. Teen Week is sponsored by the Shepherdstown Ministerial Association.
