The Churches of Christ in Christian Union

Our 2017 Advent Offering

Last year was our first experience of having an Advent Offering which replaced our February Sacrifice Offering. What a thrill it was to receive nearly $67,000! This offering helps in providing disaster relief when such events occur on our mission fields. It also assists in the operational costs. This past year funds from this account enabled us to send finances to Yemen for the Humanitarian Relief and just recently, to our churches in the Caribbean region due to the damage from the hurricane.

Our theme for the offering this year is The Way in a Manger. Truly, He is the way and the truth and the life… John 14:6. Let’s not hold back in sharing The Way with friends, neighbors and those around the world. You may not feel called to another country to share The Way, but we can all lighten the load of those who have responded to the call God has given them. Let’s work at making this offering the best yet! The goal this year is to raise $75,000.

Your gift will make a difference today!

Meet the Northeast District Superintendent

Rev. Frank Skies, District Superintendent

Growing up in the Catholic Church on the north side of Endicott, NY, I knew what Jesus Christ did for me. What I did not know, He desired to live in my heart, forgive me of my sins, and continue to live for him in a personal relationship. I thank God for the life- journey of faith that He has placed me on. The Northeast District of the Churches of Christ in Christian Union and the Endwell church played a very important part in my life. Accepting Christ as my personal Savior, being ordained (both at Lily Lake camp), pastoring and now having the privilege to serve as District Superintendent are among many of those blessings.

I am a graduate of Maine-Endwell High School, Ohio Christian University, and Mount Vernon Nazarene University.

I am blessed beyond measure, and I give all praise to God for how He has worked in my life.

I am married to my lovely and talented wife Kaye. We have two children. Our daughter Kari and her husband Frank live in Texas. Our son Joshua and his wife Christy live in Ohio. We are also blessed with five grandchildren.

I currently am pastoring the Church of the Good Shepherd in Bellefonte, PA where I have served for the last 12 years.

Matt. 6:33 "Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you". 

Seek Him with all your heart!
