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!
Are you a youth who is interested in learning to acolyte? The only requirement is to be tall enough to light the candles. If interested, please contact Erika Neiderer at Erikamn@comcast.net or (717) 892-1131.

Help Needed Baking Pies
The Bazaar is quickly approaching, and with it comes a plea from the choir for help on pie baking day—November 10th. It will begin bright and early at 7 am and end at approximately 9 pm. The morning will begin with volunteers slicing apples and end with packing up the pies to sell, and clean-up. During the day, there is a need for help in the kitchen with washing dishes, rolling out crusts, and anything else that Betsy Bischoff sees that needs to be done. We also need help in the all-purpose room with labeling and packing up the pies. If you could donate one to two hours of your time that day, it would be greatly appreciated. The pies have become somewhat famous in their own right, but to continue this tradition, the choir needs some help from the rest of our congregation. Thank you!
All Saints Sunday is October 29
We will remember those who have died in the past year by placing white roses at the table. Should you wish to have your loved one commemorated at this service, please contact the church office at (717) 392-5718 with your name, the name of your loved one, and the date of death by October 24th. We will also need the name of the individual and the time of the worship service they will be attending in order to receive the rose placed in memory of their loved one.
