Our Purpose and Hope

You are invited to attend the continuation of a significant tradition at Elm Park United Methodist Church. For many years each February, days of learning, spiritual growth and celebration were hosted and called, “The Mid-Winter Institute.” Featuring noted speakers, scholars, practitioners, clergy and laity, this festival continued for many years.

Now after a tough year we are bringing this annual gathering back in-person hoping to offer relevant and helpful information, inspiring worship, and a gathering of church leaders and members from around the Scranton/W-B District and the Susquehanna Conference. Plan now to attend this vision filled event. The theme will be “Leading in the Wilderness”.

Who should attend?

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. Both pastors and laity will find helpful information and first-class workshops to help nurture creative methodology for taking on the challenges the church faces today and tomorrow.
