Congratulations, Evelyn!
Evelyn Archer officially became a Certified Candidate in the United Methodist Church on Aug. 8. To be a Certified Candidate, one must have completed/passed a process of interviews, forms, mentorship and exams which are designed to both aid in an individual’s discernment of their call and help the UMC see the attributes of someone who is seeking ordained ministry as a vocation. While she still needs a lot of education and experience before moving toward full ordination (if God wills it to be), she is ecstatic to have reached this milestone, and is incredibly grateful to Chestnut, Chappy, and the SPRC for their support through this journey. Another thank you to the Weaver Scholarship, for their continued support of young people seeking vocational ministry like her.

"Sins along the Seine"
We are so excited about this year's script because it was written by our very own Chelsea Rowe! It takes place in an art museum in France. (In case you did not know, Chelsea is a French teacher in York County.) We have a large cast this year, to include: Chelsea Rowe, Gigi Foley, Matt Twiggs, Don Forman, Summer Davis, Tim Hughes, Lori Davis, Barry Davis, Mike Weichman, Jacqueline Ogunjulugbe, Patti Delimpaltadakis, Andy Foley III and Andy Foley IV. Details of the menu are still being worked out, but right now it’s looking like chicken cordon bleu, potatoes au gratin, and green beans along with peach cobbler a la mode (are you catching the French theme?) We will also have chef's salad and a baked potato as an option. Tickets will be $15 and are on sale in the Welcome Center.
