In the Rainelle, WV area, the UPCI West Virginia / western Maryland District is teamed up with Bro. Larry Williamson out of the South Texas District and Reach Out America. UPCI Pastor Chad Smailes is overseeing a 40,000-square-foot facility, which is the old Magic Mart in Rainelle. We need many volunteers right now to help unload and distribute all the product that's been brought in. If you can help in anyway it would be much appreciated.
Also tomorrow, Friday, July 1, Channel 17 of Fayette County will be having a tel-a-thon for the relief effort by Reach Out America and the UPCI West Virginia / western Maryland District for the Rainelle area. All proceeds will go straight to the Rainelle effort. We have a 26-foot box truck with a lift gate rented, and it will be located at the Kroger in Oak Hill, and anything that you could give for that effort would be much appreciated.
Also on Tuesday, July 5, UPCI Pastor Eugene Whetzel (district North American Missions Director) will be taking a crew of men to help rebuild the devastated church in Charmco, WV. We have 120 sheets of plywood that will be reinstalled in that facility (including sanctuary and Sunday school rooms). If you can join that crew it will be greatly appreciated. Contact info for Pastor Whetzel: NAMdir@wvupci.org
Also on Tuesday, July 5, UPCI Pastor Anthony Moss will be taking a crew of men to help rebuild the devastated church in Clendenin, WV. If you can join that crew it will be greatly appreciated. Contact info for Pastor Moss: MossAnthonyMoss@aol.com
The following is the transcript of a "ONE CALL NOW" update from Bishop David Hudson, Superintendent of the West Virginia / western Maryland District, UPCI:
"This is the bishop speaking, and I wanted to touch base with our West Virginia & western Maryland pastors and ministers. Trust you are doing well and had good church yesterday. I have been making progress, for which I praise God. I had my first immune therapy treatment specifically for the melanoma stage four cancer on Friday. Everything went very well, but Friday night I had some reaction, which is part of the situation, and my legs were so weak I was unable to stand. The doctor suggested coming to ER to get checked out for sure, and everything did check it out. They have kept me here Saturday and Sunday, and I have regained about 75% of my strength back in the legs. Thank you so much for your continued prayer and thoughts. I do rejoice at the reports that I get of those being filled with the Holy Ghost and baptized. I believe God is continuing to do good things across West Virginia and western Maryland. We will continue to pray and believe God for great things as our camps convene for Sunday school and youth, and churches are having their vacation Bible schools. We pray blessings upon you and your family and churches. God bless! It's good to speak to you today. May you have a blessed week."

Some of our departments have their own separate websites, which is fine, of course. However, all our departments are encouraged to also post their info about events, fund drives, etc, here on the main district website. Why? There are several important reasons.
"Central point of access" -- While many of our ministers and members know about this main website, fewer know about all the additional departmental domains elsewhere. When our departmental leaders and teams continually post here, that helps each department stay in touch with its readers, and it increases the chances of getting viewers to go to those separate departmental websites elsewhere.
"WV UPCI's Automated Weekly Newsletter" -- Each Monday morning, an automated email newsletter goes out to our subscribers. It includes all of the new posts made during the prior week. Think ahead and post in advance, so your article's inclusion in the newsletter will be timed properly. Want to subscribe? Click here now.
Below are screenshots showing an initial post here (A), and the other three sites that get automated updates (B, C, and D) because of that initial post:
"I’ve been engaged in various forms of social media since AOL chat rooms in 1994. And I’ve never seen a more dangerous application targeting teenagers, specifically girls, than SnapChat. The premise of SnapChat is simple. You take a picture, send it to a friend, and they can only see it for up to 10 seconds before it’s deleted. And that’s where the lie begins. I want to be blunt. My goal for this post is to motivate you to delete SnapChat from your phone...." [read more].
We are excited to present the seventh edition of the WV District Historical Newsletter, edited by our own Rev. Daniel Scott. You will find it informative. It can be downloaded and printed for your church folks and also can be sent on to your email address book for church or those you feel would be interested in seeing this. The quality is good and represents us well in the nation. Special thanks to Brother Scott for a job well done! Also thanks to Sis. LaDonna Joseph for proofing and correcting each edition.
Recently Rev. Everett Davenport, the administrator for all of the Purpose Institute campuses in the WV District, and Rev. Randy Tenney, newly appointed dean of the campus that has been meeting in Morgantown, WV, announced a location change: PI classes will be hosted at Christian Apostolic Church in Clarksburg, WV, starting with the upcoming Fall Semester, instead of Morgantown. This change eases the commute for students, staff, and some of the faculty. To keep up to date with this campus, visit and 'Like' the official Facebook page.
