Prayer Needs


Pastor Tara Alton from Berlin The River Church shared that yesterday she and Joshua (her son) were transported to children's hospital in D.C.  Joshua has been dealing with some back pain for several weeks. After no relief from minor diagnosis he went to the ER tonight and they did an MRI. There is a baseball size mass crushing his spine and causing serious damage. 

Please lift Joshua and the Alton family in prayer. As we receive additional information from Pastor Tara we will provide it to you the district family. Please feel free to share this prayer request with your staff and congregation.






From our District Superintendent, David W. Bowser on Friday, July 1, 2022


It is with a heavy heart that I share the news that yesterday (Thursday, June 30) afternoon, Dr. Judy Burnell went home to be with the Lord following an illness and brief hospitalization. Her unexpected death leaves her family mourning this loss.


Dr. Judy Burnell has served as the Lead Pastor of the Seaford Church of the Nazarene from July, 2017 until present. Her ministry has not only had a local and district impact but has had global influence as well.


In speaking with her husband earlier this morning he asked me to share her deep love and joy in serving as a pastor on the Mid-Atlantic District. 


There will be a private family memorial service later.


Please keep the Burnell family in your prayers.


Grace and Peace!
