Join us to welcome Pastor Cyndi who will return from her study leave to celebrate Communion and lead us in worship on August 12.  It is sure to be an interesting sermon! Pastor Cyndi and YUMC received a Lilly Foundation Grant for Clergy Renewal to support her study leave in 2018.  Pastor Cyndi received her Master of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York. Since her ordination in 1991, she has served churches in Troy, New York; Arcadia, California; and Croydon and Willow Grove in Pennsylvania, as well as preaching in Munich and Dresden, Germany. Her interests in ministry include welcoming all people, and sharing the joy of loving and being loved by God and God’s people.

Let us rejoice and be glad in it!” (Psalm 118:24) Cyndi lives with her husband, Dr. David Breen, Associate Professor of Computer Science at Drexel University.  They have two adult sons, Stefan Skripak and Ryan Breen.
