Rev. Myles & Joan Bradley Visit "Tent of Nations" While Touring Palestine


For more pictures, please visit the Calvary Website.

Greetings from Tent of Nations

Last Fall Calvary Church hosted Daoud Nassar who shared the story of the Tent Of Nations, his family’s farm outside Bethlehem. Last month we had the opportunity to visit him at his farm while touring Palestine with Dr. Steve Tuell.

We arrived at the Tent of Nations after our bus driver backed down a narrow road for a quarter mile because the road was blocked and there was no room to turn around. The farm overlooks Nahalin, an Arab village surrounded by four Israeli Settlements.

Residents of the nearby Israeli settlement used large boulders to block the road at two places about 50 yards apart – forcing us to climb over the rocks and walk the rest of the way to the gate.

The farm dogs greeted us as we passed the entry stone: “We refuse to be enemies”.  Daoud and his brother, Dakar, met us and led us to an outdoor table.  As we settled in to eat a fresh lunch, the dogs began barking at two Israeli soldiers who confronted Daoud inquiring about his visitors. He assured them that we were American Christians visiting and invited them to join us for lunch – knowing that they would refuse and leave. This was a reminder of the constant harassment which the Nassars receive, and the way they respond to that harassment.

Following lunch we adjourned to a cave-room, decorated with colorful murals, where Daoud shared his story with our group. After a century of ownership and residence on the land, and sixty years of defending their land against seizure by the government of Israel, their legal battle continues. This had led to cutting off power, water and access to the farm, and the destruction of hundreds of olive trees. At present, water is captured in cisterns and the 100 acres are self-sufficient, with solar panels providing electric power. Daoud described the programs of the Tent of Nations, and the impact that their peaceful approach has on their neighbors – Arabs and Jews.

We were then invited to plant apricot trees along the farm lane. With that project completed Dakar invited us to visit the cave which had served as the family home where he taught us to sing “Allelu, Allelu, Allelu, Alleluia” in Arabic and English. Our return to the bus was observed by several Israeli settlers, reminding us that the farm was always under surveillance.

The hospitality at Tent of Nations was a reminder of the grace and faithfulness of the Palestinian people, which we experienced with Daoud in Pittsburgh, and again on his farm. We bring fond memories of our visit and greetings from Daoud to our congregation.

9th Annual Race For Grace


Saturday, April 2, 2016 at 7:00am at Norwin High School


For the complete story and more pictures, please visit the Calvary Website.

The 9th Annual Race For Grace to benefit the Reflections of Grace Foundation is scheduled for Saturday, April 2nd at Norwin High School in North Huntingdon, PA. In addition to the 5K Run/Walk and the 1-Mile Fun Walk, the event includes activities for the whole family -- children's games/activities, raffles and auctions, food for sale, a bake sale, dance performances, hair donations, etc.
 
Reflections Of Grace Foundation, Inc. is named after Grace Elizabeth Ekis, the 5-year old granddaughter of Rev. Funk, who lost her courageous 13-month battle with a rare cancerous brain tumor on Valentine's Day 2008.

As its mission, the Reflections Of Grace Foundation is dedicated to:
  • Providing financial, emotional, and educational support for children and their families affected by pediatric brain cancer. 
  • Raising awareness of all types of pediatric brain tumors, with a particular focus on DIPGs, or Brainstem Gliomas. 
  • Joining with other like-minded organizations in educating, aiding and funding the search for a cure for DIPG and other forms of pediatric brain cancer, in the hopes of curing all cancers.
Monies raised by the Foundation go directly to families with children battling brain cancer, and also are used to fund crucial research grants, with the intent of someday discovering a cure.  As of December 2015, Reflections Of Grace has given $304,000 to help 203 families of children battling brain cancer, across 26 states, and has awarded more than $250,000 to fund crucial research grants.

For further information about the foundation, please visit their website at https://www.reflectionsofgrace.org/

Health Kits for UMCOR


For the complete story, please visit the Calvary Website.

When disaster strikes, anywhere in the world, victims need immediate help and support. Physical injuries must be addressed; shelter, food, and clothing need to be acquired; health supplies and educational resources must be provided.  And, all of it as quickly as possible. The United Methodist Church, through the UM Committee on Relief, stands ready to respond because our members work to be prepared! In New Wilmington, PA, at the Mission Barn, supplies are stocked, ready for immediate shipment to areas of need.  Each year at June’s Annual Conference Session we gather kits to stock the Barn. You can help this process by taking the time to purchase the components and packing a Health Kit, School Kit, or another of those needed. Links to instructions for the kits are listed below. Bring your kits to church and we will see that they are moved to the Conference. Some people focus on what to give up for Lent. We challenge you to add something to your faith experience during Lent. Help UMCOR respond to the needs of others.
