Potomac Conference

Tim Conley 101 Class

Story by Tiffany Doss

You don’t need to be enrolled in college to take a 101 class in the intricacies of gardening, maneuvering remote controlled helicopters, creating stained glass or baking bread. Members at Potomac Conference’s Harrisonburg and Charlottesville churches in Virginia have been tuning in weekly via Zoom to discover what hidden talents fellow district members can teach each other.

Adventist Community Services of Greater Washington (ACSGW) in collaboration with several Seventh-day Adventist Churches in Silver Spring and Takoma Park, Md., and Montgomery County Government will hold a food distribution at Takoma Academy (8120 Carroll Ave.) this Friday from 3-6:00 pm.

The grab-n-go, drive-through style distribution was organized to help families who are suffering from food insecurity due to the COVID-19 crisis.

One of Takoma Academy’s (TA) missions is to lead young people to Jesus by helping students maintain a strong spiritual life. While the faculty and staff make a team effort to provide spiritual guidance to the students, the role of a chaplain is to expand on it. This was no challenge for new hire Leah Burgess, affectionally known as “Chaplain B. Leah,” who was welcomed to the Tiger family late last year.
