October 31, 2017

The Rural Chaplains Association of the United Methodist Church came to Vermont in October for their annual meeting.

Bishop Sudarshana Devadhar was made an honorary Rural Chaplain at a gathering of Rural Chaplains on Oct. 25, 2017 at North Ferrisburgh UMC in Vermont. The bishop and Vermont District Superintendent Jill Colley Robinson shared an evening meal and worship with the chaplains.

"It was a great evening of worship and fellowship," Bishop Devadhar said. "I so appreciated the radical hospitality of Rev. Kimberly Hornung-Marcy and the leaders and members of the North Ferrisburgh UMC as well my time with those in the vital ministry of rural chaplaincy."




On Wednesday, October 25, the North Ferrisburgh United Methodist Church hosted the Rural Chaplains for dinner.
