Who We Are, How We Serve

The Columbia Union Conference coordinates the Seventh-day Adventist Church’s work in the Mid-Atlantic United States, where 149,000 members worship in 800 congregations. We provide administrative support to eight conferences, two healthcare networks, 81 elementary and secondary schools, a liberal arts university, a health sciences college, a dozen community services centers, six book and health food stores and a radio station.

Mission Values Priorities

We Believe

God is love, power, and splendor—and God is a mystery. His ways are far beyond us, but He still reaches out to us. God is infinite yet intimate, three yet one,
all-knowing yet all-forgiving.

There’s been a whole lot of scooping going all summer long with WGTS 91.9. The station just wrapped up its fourth annual ice cream tour with a stop in Gaithersburg, Md. Johnny and Stacey Stone broadcasted live from the Kentlands Market Square Plaza in the center of the city. Other staff members served ice cream, played games and distributed prizes for four hours in the 101-degree heat.

“We were a little concerned that the weather would keep people away, but the heat didn’t stop the WGTS family from getting together for the last ice cream only stop,” said WGTS Morning Show host and promotions director Jerry Woods.
