NORTH WHITEHALL: Union Lutheran future leaders to inspire congregation


Special to The Press

Everyone attending Union Lutheran Church 9 a.m. April 14 will see future leaders of the congregation in action.

Youth have worked with Pastor Gordon Camp, Music Director Susan Frickert, the Praise Band, and group leaders to create an inspiring worship experience.

Everyone is invited on a journey to show there are angels among us.

On April 21, poet Ed Romond will attend Union Lutheran’s Happy Hour, 10:15 a.m. to 11 a.m., to share some of his new writings and give insights on his creative process.

April is National Poetry Month, a time to appreciate poets and their work in our culture.


Union United Church of Christ, Neffs, will have an installation service for Pastor of Visitation Carrie Beleno at the 8 a.m. and the 10:30 a.m. worship services on April 14.

“Over the past two years, I have had the opportunity to share many life moments with our congregation and community,” Beleno reports.

She visited the hospitalized, participated in funerals and baptisms, and led numerous groups at Union UCC.

“This work will continue but, looking forward, I am excited to be working with the Leadership Planning Team in envisioning where our church and congregation are headed,” Beleno said.

She wants to create new ways for people to connect, learn and grow, and to expand her times for preaching.
