A recording of these gatherings will be made available soon.

Bishop Sandra Steiner Ball and Bishop Cynthia Moore-Koikoi:

  • led us in worship,
  • shared their portfolios and how the work of both Bishops will lead us in ministry and mission,
  • shared their vision for the United Methodist Church in the Susquehanna, Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia Conferences and how our Wesleyan distinctives will guide us to lead Christ's mission in The United Methodist Church, and
  • gave us an update on the latest announcement regarding General Conference.


As United Methodists in the Susquehanna Conference – we are part of a church that was founded on the following:

Disciple-making: We are committed to making disciples who are grounded in the teachings and example of Jesus Christ.  Disciples of Jesus who live a life of personal piety and social holiness, which is what makes us distinctively Wesleyan.

Belonging – We embrace a Church that has uplifted our own lives and the lives of our friends, family, and those we cherish. We celebrate that God’s grace is not static but meets us where we are as we grow in love of God and neighbor. We give thanks for The United Methodist Church where, when communion is celebrated, everyone is welcome at Christ’ table.

Connected & Impactful –through the power of the Holy Spirit, living and sharing the grace of Jesus Christ, we are committed to work for better health, education, child welfare, disaster recovery, and countless other efforts.  Our connectional nature means that we can accomplish much more together than alone to transform our communities and the world.

Experience God – We experience God through the outpouring of God’s mercy and grace. Whether our hands are raised in worship or at work alongside others, this experience of God transforms our own lives as well as the lives of others.
