“SEED, SCATTERED AND SOWN: Reaching Beyond this Generation” describes the goals of our mission resourcing campaign. We endeavor to develop resources to fulfill Virlina District’s commitment to ministry with our children, youth and young adults; to initiate and continue our new church development and assistance to our smaller, struggling congregations; to encourage development of set-apart ministerial leadership and to provide necessary enhancements to fulfill Camp Bethel’s future potential. While we are grateful for past accomplishments, we recognize the crucial importance of envisioning and empowering forward progress in our mission. We are blessed to have the privilege and opportunity to initiate new and exciting ministries in the years to come!

Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart. Recite them to your children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise. Bind them as a sign on your hand, fix them as an emblem on your forehead, and write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
- Deuteronomy 6:6-9
Over 300 years ago the first Brethren came together to study the Scriptures and discern what it meant to be a follower of Christ. In all the years since, studying the Bible, exploring God’s Word, and discerning the Scriptures have been important to Brethren. The Church of the Brethren has done this in many ways: Bible study at home, Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, seminars, small groups, retreats, etc. The Virlina District Nurture Commission has appointed a Christian Education Task Team to support, encourage, and assist congregations in continuing to study, explore and discern the Scriptures. Christian education is vitally important to the health and growth of every member and every congregation.
