Harvest Home: Sunday, September 10
Each year, we celebrate God’s autumn bounty by giving a portion of it to those who are less fortunate. We ask each member of our church family to bring non-perishable food to church on Harvest Home Sunday. Monetary gifts may go into your special envelope for Harvest Home/Food Bank and placed in the collection plate. These donations will be taken to Lancaster County Council of Churches, Hempfield Area Food Pantry, and our own Food Bank at Church of the Apostles, which supports Apostles Assistance. If you have any questions, please contact Linda Schock at (717) 569-3837.

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.
