Conference Reps Help Sparks Celebrate

October 23, 2018

California-Nevada Annual Conference Lay Leader Micheal Pope and Executive Director of Leadership Development Gere Reist preached on The Priesthood of All Believers, Sunday (Oct. 21) at Sparks United Methodist Church in Sparks, Nevada.
There at the invitation of the church’s pastor, the Rev. Lee Neish, the conference representatives were able to help celebrate signs of vitality at Sparks UMC – such as the re-launch of a church youth group, and the addition of a second service, made necessary by a growth in worship attendance.
Additional cause for celebration: The more than $10,000 raised by Sparks UMC’s Pumpkin Patch sales – one-third of which will go to the church’s ministry with the homeless.
