World Communion Sunday
We are taking a special Love Offering to provide food for the orphans at Kaendra's Place and the families of the School of Hope. Please make your checks to "FUMC Haiti Mission '' and in the memo write "Hunger Relief". Love offering envelopes will be available as you enter the sanctuary and FLC. Food costs have risen dramatically making it nearly impossible for people in Haiti to feed their families. Our help will make a big difference in their lives.
The Café is open. Stop by for some refreshments!
We are in need of a class or group to set up the Café on the 4th Sunday of the month. If your class or group can serve in this way, please contact Suzanne Everly.
Did you know that if you can’t make your preferred Sunday morning service, you can come Thursday Night for a brief but meaningful service and stay for a delicious dinner?

Watch our services on youtube at 12pm!
We also have a dedicated phone number so you can listen to latest recorded service at 717-899-4JOY (4569).
Mail Service is up to only missing a day or two a week. We feel confident that tithes and offerings mailed to the church will arrive here safely. If you wish to send your contributions via mail, you are welcome to do so.
