Central District presented "Bishop's Day on the District"
The Central District of the Eastern PA Conference presented "Bishop's Day on the District" on Wednesday, November 10th at Mother African Zoar United Methodist Church. Hosted by the North Philadelphia Cluster, the day began with a gathering of clergy for a luncheon, devotions and time with the bishop and question and answer session.
The evening featured a reception for Laity followed by devotions led by District Superintendent Rev. Philip Ponce. The highlight of the evening program was the introduction of Bishop Marcus Matthews who related a heartwarming personal biography. Bishop Matthews also facilitated a question and answer session in which he gave updates on conference business.
Many churches in the district were represented at this event which provided a unique opportunity to interact with our new bishop and district superintendent.
