During the first three Sundays of each month, you have the opportunity to buy grocery cards in the office after service. You can buy cards for the following month and pick up the ones you ordered last month. Remember, the discount we earn from purchasing cards in bulk from Giant, Stauffers, and Weis provide food for the Saturday Breakfast downtown once a month. Helping others is easy, as well as a wonderful thing!

Our new Wishing Well ministry will be collecting PJs for children who are undergoing cancer treatment at local hospitals. This collection, called Conner’s Comfy PJs, is done in memory of Conner Holland, a five-year-old boy, who lived in Lititz and expressed his wish to his parents that every child who had to go through cancer treatment would have comfy pajamas to wear in the hospital. We will be collecting NEW children’s pajamas for sizes 3T to 18 through May. If you have any questions, please contact Jane McCartney at (717) 392-4844.
