Summer Assembly in Millersville University, 8-13 July

Summer Assembly ‘Wake the World’, the annual summer convention in Pennsylvania, was held at Millersville University, Lancaster County, PA. It was a wonderful time with equipping tracks where teens were instructed in teaching/communicating techniques, drama, worship, and small group leadership. Youth worked in their youth groups following their skill sessions so they could prepare and lead a 25 minute devotion on Friday. The event also featured great summer fun in the afternoon, evening worship, and late night relationship building activities.

WCEU President Kalman Adorjan joined us for several days at the beginning of the week and was part of our CE Mid-Atlantic board meeting Tuesday afternoon. During that time, youth groups were given the opportunity to serve others at several different sites across Lancaster County. Four work camp weeks were also provided through C.E. Mid-Atlantic's Life Builders program. Youth groups did repair work on homes damaged from flooding last year in the Pine Grove, PA area.

The most exciting news is that two churches have decided to start using Christian Endeavor as their youth discipleship process this fall. This is the first fruit experienced from the CE Mid- Atlantic's CE Rebirth campaign.
