Our logo is very
symbolic. The chain
represents the vital link
of the Church Secretary.
Notice that the links are
not alike! The triangle
signifies the Trinity and
The UMC is represented
by a cross and flame.

Spring Workshop
Tuesday ~ April 28, 2015
See attached information!
Rick Wolcott, Director of
Communications for the East Ohio
Conference, will share about
improving the message we are sending
to our communities.
Rev. Bill McCartney, retired, will help
us understand the United Methodist
Church structure — the Who, What
and Why — of our church.
Ohio PAUMCS Membership is not
required to attend this workshop.
Registration Fee: Includes
workshop, breakfast/lunch and
CEU credits.
Lodging Opportunities: You are
encouraged to stay overnight at
Widewater Retreat on Monday,
April 27. Widewater is a beautiful
facility and this is a great
opportunity to connect with other
PAUMCS members and learn from
each other. The cost for overnight
accommodations is $45. (Please see
the additional flyer to register for
overnight stay.) It often seems that
we can’t take the time for an
overnight—or it isn’t in the budget,
but getting to know one another is
so worth the time and effort. We
know the speakers and the food
will be excellent. Plus there is a
wealth of knowledge within our
group. This always is noted on
PAUMCS evaluations—’time for
sharing.’ An overnight is just the
thing we need. Who can resist a
campfire, singing, sharing,
laughing and s’mores?
Mission Project: United
Methodist Church Camp
Scholarships — we will accept
donations towards church
camper scholarships. Ohio
PAUMCS will match all
donations and the amount raised
will be split between the East
Ohio and West Ohio
Conferences. There will be a
display of camps in Ohio.
CEUs: Approval has been
requested for a recertification
credit of .5 CEU by the
Professional Training and
Standards Committee of
National PAUMCS.
It is not too late to join Ohio
PAUMCS (or National for that
matter) for 2015. Enjoy the benefits
of membership for the next nine
months. Just $25 per year or a
bargain price of $40 for a staff
membership if you have more than
one in the office. If you have
questions, contact Lin Tranter.
It is not too
late to register
for the
Conference in
Atlanta! April
16-19. Check it
