Elsada Peters' 101 Birthday Celebration

On Sunday, January 14, 2024, we celebrated Mrs. Elsada Peters’ 101st birthday in the Dorothy Harris Auditorium.
The host for the event was Elder Charles Barber and Deacon Katrin Jones catered a scrumptious lunch with the birthday cake and ice cream. Mrs. Thelma Jones provided beautiful music throughout.
An ever-vibrant Mrs. Peters read Psalm 91, that reminds us that the Lord grants long life to those that find shelter in Him. Mrs. Peters also danced for us.
It was a wonderful event with over 40 attendees that included Mrs. Peters’ niece from London, England.

Northeastern Presbyterian Church Introduces Pastor Mark Greiner, Transformational Stated Supply Pastor 

Pastor Mark Greiner

Pastor Mark Greiner was born into an American military family in Berlin, Germany.  After graduating Princeton Seminary in 1991, he’s served congregations in Ohio, New York, Maryland and the District .  A life-long learner, he’s studied in Africa, the Middle East, Cuba, and Europe.  Blessed for 25 years as an installed pastor, our presbytery has called on him to serve congregations in transition since 2017.

Pastor Mark is passionate about prayer and healing ministry.  Our presbytery commissioned him to medical mission work in Nepal in 2020.  He attended medical school at the Maryland Univeristy of Integrative Health and taught there.  As an Eastern Medicine practitioner and spiritual director, he focuses on building well-being and healing trauma.  Pastor Mark sees clients in his practice in Silver Spring, Maryland:   

For fun, Mark may be found Sacred Circle dancing with his wife, attending a concert with their daughter, stirring a home-made soup or with his hands in clay.  He’s in his happy places in an art museum, an international restaurant, hiking or kayaking…of when someone shares a poem, a hymn, or a joke.
