The reason for both Jesus’ birth and the Seventh-day Adventist Church have something in common. His birth was not to divide history into two time periods—B.C. and A.D., nor was the birth of the church created to divide Sabbath keepers from Sunday keepers. The commonality is that the birth of Jesus was prophesized by Old Testament prophets and the Adventist church was born of a prophetic movement.

Adventist HealthCare Washington Adventist Hospital in Takoma Park, Md., has been ranked in the top 7 percent of hospitals nationwide for the quality care it provides patients who undergo coronary bypass graft surgery, the most common type of open heart surgery in the U.S.
Last month, the hospital received a Three-Star rating–the highest possible quality rating–from the Society for Thoracic Surgeons. The organization analyzes many national cardiac surgery data categories to determine which hospitals meet the stringent Three-Star criteria.

El nacimiento de Jesús y la iglesia Adventista del Séptimo Dia tienen algo en común. El propósito de su nacimiento no fue para dividir la historia en dos períodos—A.C. y D.C., así como el nacimiento de la iglesia no fue para dividir a los guardadores del sábado y del domingo. El punto en común es que el nacimiento de Jesús fue profetizado por los profetas del Antiguo Testamento y la iglesia Adventista nace de un movimiento profético.

To celebrate the hard work Potomac Conference pastors accomplish, leadership quietly selected and recognized two candidates at the annual Pastors’ Meeting, an event for team building, personal reflection and growth. The conference recognized Darry Campbell, pastor of the Galax, Mountain View, New River Valley and Wytheville churches in Virginia, and Don McFarlane, pastor for administration at the Sligo church in Takoma Park, Md., for their excellence in ministry. This recognition included appreciation videos in which members shared how the ministries of Campbell and
McFarlane have personally touched their lives.
