Engaging the Community through a Whiffle Ball League at North Shenango

The Session of the North Shenango Church agreed to use their $214 evangelism gift to organize a Whiffle Ball League for their community.  And in the process it allowed them to build relationships with their neighbors who did not have specific connections with their church.  The league ran from four weeks, meeting twice a week for two hours of great fun on Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings.  The focus was on youth ages 6 to 11.  The church was also helped out by three teen agers who helped make the program more lively. T-shirts were purchased; athletic skills were learned; and (of course) food was shared afterwards!  Including youth, teen agers, and organizing parents there were more than 20 participants.  Some of the parents indicated that they would like for their youth participate again next year if the church offers the league once again!

     

   

   

The April 19th meeting of Lake Erie Presbytery was hosted by the Wayside Presbyterian Church, Erie.  Commissioned Ruling Elder Nancy Page preached in the worship service.  And a wonderful spirit prevailed as presbyters learned, enjoyed fellowship, and took action to build the Kingdom of God.
