Connecting Columbia Union Seventh-day Adventists

November 2014

During the Columbia Union year-end meetings, union leadership presented eight men and women with Notable Persons of Honor awards.

Rob Vandeman, executive secretary, used Proverbs 22:29, The Clear Word version, to describe the honorees: “Show me a man who does his work faithfully and well; he is worthy to be in the presence of kings; he is not just an ordinary man.”

This fall four Lehigh Valley Seventh-day Adventist Elementary School eighth-graders conducted an evangelistic series at the school in Whitehall, Pa. Mark Dekle, one of the constituent pastors, trained the stu- dents to preach for the event using the ShareHim series “His Way of Hope.”
