Connecting Columbia Union Seventh-day Adventists
- Columbia Union News
Members of the Columbia Union Conference Executive Committee gathered last week via Zoom to discuss and reflect on the church’s work over the last two months. The main topic? How COVID-19 has impacted the mission and ministry across the eight-state territory.
Au cours de la réunion du mois de mars du Comité Exécutif de l’Union de Fédérations de Columbia, les membres ont voté de retourner la somme de 50 000 dollars à chaque Fédération, ainsi qu’à l’Université Adventiste de Washington à Takoma Park, dans le Maryland. Ces entités peuvent utiliser cet argent pour les projets qu’elles jugent appropriés.
With all churches across the Columbia Union Conference physically closed due to the coronavirus, pastors and members changed—seemingly overnight— the way they minister. In addition to offering livestreamed or pre-recorded services, many churches and conferences moved planning meetings, Sabbath School classes and Bible studies to Zoom, Facebook Live or other digital video platforms.

A local church, union, and North American Division recently partnered together to show their appreciation for the dedicated service of local front-line healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We talked to educators and students from around the union and learn about more creative ways members are lending a helping hand during this tough time.
Here are five ways Columbia Union members are trying to lend a hand during the COVID-19 crisis.
“God gives us ideas and thoughts for businesses and it’s for His glory,” D’Souza-David said. “No matter what it is it’s for His glory. Anything God has enabled you to do is for His glory.”
The event, the first to be hosted virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic, took place on Zoom.
