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!
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.

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 purchasing a listed item, and putting it in the Wishing Well in September, October, and the first part of November. Thank you for your continued generosity and support of our local community.
