Our Purpose and Hope

You are invited to attend the re-birth 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, β€œThe Mid-Winter Institute.” Featuring noted speakers, scholars, practitioners, clergy and laity, this festival continued for many years.

Now after an hiatus, pastor and leadership are bringing back this annual gathering 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 β€œ2020 Vision and Beyond!” and will focus on where we are as a church today and tools for taking on the challenges of the 21st century church and culture.


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.
