The ABC/VNH’s 60 Days of Prayer is in full swing. Have you downloaded your Prayer Booklet yet? Have you had time to reflect on the wonderful daily messages and inspiring photos?
On our Facebook page we’re posting the reflections daily, with a link to the Prayer Booklet. If you haven’t yet “liked” our Region’s Facebook page, please do so and join in.
Wishing you much peace, love and goodwill during these next weeks as we prepare to come together for the Annual Gathering on May 1st in Rutland, Vermont.
Just about a year ago, we were busy filming and editing a series of four videos shot around the Region.
Today we’re posting Loon Mountain Ministries video. Be inspired by the energy of their pastor, Marcus Corey and learn more about how they are reaching out to people in need of God’s love.

There are several new pastors around the Region and we hope to feature each one here on the Region’s website and say WELCOME and thank them for the energy and love that they pour into God’s work.
Patti and Jon Stratton
Patti and Jon Stratton come to ABCV/NH after 20 years of ministry in Maine. Pastoral ministry is a second career for both. Jon was a Music Teacher prior to graduating for Eastern Baptist Theological (now Palmer) Seminary in 1994. Patti is a Registered Nurse and graduated from Bangor Theological Seminary in 2013.
Accepting the call to co-pastor First Baptist Church of Rutland is their first official call together. They arrived in Rutland in July and began the ministry on August 1. Patti and Jon are taking time, getting to know their congregation and new city.
Patti says, “This church has so much potential! We are excited to be here and to see what God has planned for us personally as a family and as a faith community. Our meeting house is in a great location, it’s big and has so much space to offer for ministry and community gatherings. We are happy to be a part of the” new thing” God is doing.”
Jon and Patti have 4 children, two grown and on their own and two still at home. Tim is almost 18 and a Senior at Rutland High School. Andy is 16 and a sophomore at RHS. They are settling in nicely and becoming involved in much that Rutland has to offer.
Please join us in saying ‘welcome’ to the Stratton family and prayer for their ministry in Rutland.
