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 today. 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.
Church Directory Photo Shoot
We will be providing in-person sign ups in the Narthex for photo shoot appointments on Sundays from September 17—October 8. You can find more sign-up information on the table in the Narthex. If you have any questions, please contact Donna Carr at (717) 475-5285.
Help us to keep the prayer list meaningful. Please let us know if your prayer concern has been fulfilled or if you have an additional request. Thank you.
Our Apostles Assistance Fund continues to need our support to help people in our community. Pastor Giffen and Pastor Kuhn get many requests for needed personal care and home care items. We especially need shampoo, paper towels, toothpaste and toothbrushes, toilet paper, laundry detergent, dish detergent, cleaning supplies, and soap. Please see the posters above the Wishing Well and on the Outreach bulletin board for listed items on sticky notes. Please consider taking a sticky note, purchasing that listed item, and putting it in the Wishing Well in September, October, and the first part of November. We will continue our ministry to support the Apostles Assistance Fund up until our Holiday gifting ministry begins. Thank you for your continued generosity and support of our local community.
