Connecting Columbia Union Seventh-day Adventists

¡Otro rito del verano es el campamento de verano! No es demasiado tarde para inscribir a su campista favorito en una semana de diversión centrada en Cristo en uno de los campamentos de la unión.
Thirty churches around the Columbia Union Conference recently received portable baptistries.
As summer camp season draws closer, many camp administrators are having a hard time recruiting staff for their ministries. "It has been much more difficult this year to find students/staff," say Ray Queen and Julie Minnick, director and associate director, respectively, at Potomac Conference's Camp Blue Ridge in Montebello, Va.
Last week, Columbia Union Conference hosted its first Evangelism Directors' meeting, held at the union headquarters in Columbia, Md. Representatives from each of the union's eight conferences attended and shared highlights on how God is working in their territories.
The Columbia Union Conference is aware and takes seriously allegations of inappropriate fiscal and operational management at Kettering Health, a nonprofit health care organization sponsored by the Columbia Union.
"Keep the main thing the main thing—reaching souls for Christ," said Dave Weigley, Columbia Union Conference president, quoting Stephen Covey during the quarterly Columbia Union Conference Executive Committee meeting on March 9.
Pathfinders from 41 teams across the Columbia Union Conference participated in the 2023 union-level Pathfinder Bible Experience on Sabbath at Blue Mountain Academy. Who is headed to the North American Division event? See here. (Watch a video of the results too!)
Last winter, Adventist HealthCare celebrated the inaugural ordinations of its hospital chaplaincy program.
Churches and members around the union continue to place special emphasis on evangelism in their churches across the Columbia Union Conference.
No entity or organizations in the United States or the world church ordained hospital chaplains. So, Kettering Health and Adventist HealthCare, with the Columbia Union Conference and other local conferences, came together to create a committee to set out and make a policy for chaplain ordination within the two health systems.
