With broomsticks and a small inflatable ball, members from Pennsylvania Conference’s Hershey and Reading Hampton Heights churches, and their invited friends and co-workers, are regularly getting together to play a twist on an old favorite—Broomstick Hockey. Every four to six weeks, from September through May, an average of 40-50 players of all ages go out on the ice to have some good ol’ Christian fun. Because they play in their gym shoes, everyone has a fair shot at making a score.
Potomac Conference’s Sligo church in Takoma Park, Md., recently pulled out all the stops to greet nearly 100 radio listeners at the congregation’s first WGTS Radio Day.
D. Paul Monteiro, a member of Allegheny East Conference’s Bladensburg (Md.) church, was recently named religious liaison in the Office of Public Liaison at the White House.
On April 19, a day blessed by sunshine and bright skies, the members of Chesapeake Conference’s Spencerville church in Silver Spring, Md., met on property purchased six years earlier to break ground for a new PK-12 facility.
After much thought and prayer, Pennsylvania Conference treasurer Rudolph “Mo” Pelley announced his retirement at the April 1 Executive Committee meeting. He has served the Seventh-day Adventist Church faithfully and with integrity for 49 years, spending the last 22 years in Pennsylvania. Pelley loved his job and the opportunities it offered.
