Friend of the Conference
Friends of the Conference Update
First let me say thank you to everyone who has contributed to the Friends of the Conference! So many of you have shared stories of how your congregation moved from feelings of scarcity to generosity, and many of you have contributed financially! Thank you! We are officially 1/5th of the way to our ambitious goal for 2021 with slightly more than $6,000! Wow! That is amazing and should be applauded! With the more than 33,000 individuals that make up the Penn Northeast Conference, we made our goal $30,000 meaning each individual would only need to donate $1 for us to reach and surpass our goal! Whether you have donated before or this is your first time, I invite you to make a donation to the Friends of the Conference, so that the conference can keep doing all the amazing things they do! You can donate using our tithe.ly at https://pnec.org/tithe-ly-on-line-giving/ and designating your gift to Friends of PNEC or mail in a check payable to the Penn Northeast Conference. We are well on our way to reaching our goal, and every gift, even a dollar, makes a difference!

Howdy Penn Northeast Conference, I hope this finds you in good health and good spirits! July 4th is quickly approaching and with the increased number of vaccinated people that means many of us can come together again safely, sharing in food and fellowship with friends and family!
On July 4th we commemorate the Declaration of Independence, a document stating that all persons are created equal, endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. In considering these unalienable rights, I am reminded that in our independence, we are also interdependent with one another!
The Penn Northeast Conference is made up of roughly 33,000 individuals, each working together to do God’s Work and Be the Church! These independent individuals are also interdependent with one another, as 1 Corinthians 12:12 tells us, “Just as the body is one and has many members… so it is with Christ!”
One way to support the ministry of the Body of Christ in the Penn Northeast Conference is to become a Friend of the Conference! These donations go to support the many ministries of the Conference. As a thank you for your donation, we will send you a Recognition Level Gift! I would encourage you to celebrate your independence by supporting the interdependence of the Body of Christ! You can give online using the Conference’s tithe.ly mail in a donation, or email the Conference for more giving options.

Dear Penn Northeast Conference Members, It feels like just yesterday we were decorating the Christmas tree and in the blink of an eye we are ready to begin our Lenten season! This year the United Church of Christ has issued a Lenten challenge, Pray, Fast, & Give! Only 3 months ago the Generosity Committee introduced the ‘Friends of the Conference,’ an opportunity to support the Conference and live generously! The support we have already received was amazing! Thank you so much to everyone who gave! As a way to thank our donors we are introducing Recognition Levels! Read More...
