Social Justice in Baltimore Presbytery

Posted by on Jan 6, 2013 in Mission | Comments Off on Social Justice in Baltimore Presbytery

The Baltimore Presbytery does more than pray about unjust laws and practices that negatively affect the most vulnerable people in our state. It raises awareness of social injustice, and resource congregants who wish to advocate for further dialog or changes to public policy.  We cannot raise a voice if we are not aware of what is being considered at the Maryland State level. Susan Krehbiel is the new Director of Congregational Advocacy for the Baltimore Presbytery.  Her primary focus is to reach out, support and equip congregations to claim their role of prophetic witness, to speak out against injustice.  Susan will provide the resources, encouragement and opportunities to have your voice heard on the social justice issues that touch your heart and soul. In order to reflect this new focus, the Presbytery web page is being redesigned.  In the coming weeks, www.baltimorepresbytery.org will show links to tools for congregations, stories about advocacy around the Presbytery, theological resources and advocacy opportunities and action alerts. Susan can be reached best by email: skrehbiel at baltimorepresbytery dot org, or you can leave a voicemail question or concern with her at the office: 410-433-2012 ext.151.   Let Susan know if you wish to be on her email...

Youth Group Activities

Posted by on Jan 2, 2013 in Christian Education | Comments Off on Youth Group Activities

The youth of Ashland have been very busy!  We started out our year by attending an Orioles/Yankees game which was a lot of fun, although the outcome was not what we wanted as Orioles fans.  That same month we had a movie and pizza luncheon where we discussed the movie “Evan Almighty” a modernized movie about the Noah’s Ark story.  Our youth did an amazing job with the Youth Sunday service which was followed by Live Clue, a living version of the popular board game.  Our winning team consisted of Emily Wheeler and Cerys Beckwith, Great Job ladies!   Some things to look forward to in the coming months include our first trip to the ROCK youth retreat in Ocean City and a fundraiser at the Greene Turtle in Hunt...
