Needs: Specifically—cold cereal, rice or rice helpers, pasta, crackers, dry soup, and canned items, including soups, fruits, beans, baked beans, tomatoes, and tuna.
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!
Confirmation Class Ice Cream Social
Confirmands, their families, and mentors are invited to an ice cream social on Sunday, August 20. Please join us in the Youth Center at 3 pm.
The 2017 Choir Retreat will be held on Saturday, August 26 at the McKonly homestead from 9:00 am to noon. This is a great opportunity for each current choir member to bring along someone who may also be interested in becoming a choir member. Please attempt to find at least one person to bring to the retreat. This may be someone who is potentially a new church member or a current member seeking a way to enhance his or her Sunday worship. In addition, a corn roast, still prepared by the Bischoffs, will follow all of Saturday’s events! There is a sign-up list posted in the choir room.
Our present choir is a dedicated group who like to sing and have fun. We can always use more voices, so please consider joining us at the retreat. For directions, or if you have any questions, please see Nathan Sheffer or Cindy Kahler.
