This week the Allegheny Ministerial Convention held at the Canton First Church. The AWC choir was privileged to sing at the Wednesday afternoon and evening sessions. In addition, the elementary education students were able to provide services for the children. The students came and drank in the practical spiritual admonition given at the convention. Topics varied widely and included church shooter awareness, the fruits and gifts of the Spirit, and the need for intentional reading and study of not only God’s Word but also books on various issues relating to the principles in God’s Word. The information given at the convention was pertinent to the issues our churches are facing. Young and elderly alike gained new insight into the work of ministry. We are thankful for the refreshing nature of the Ministerial Convention in these times of turmoil and difficulty.
