The alter flowers are placed to the glory of God.
The centerpiece is placed in honor of husband Bill by Judy Paes.
A centerpiece is in honor and memory of the four chaplains who gave their life jackets to other servicemen as their ship was sinking on February 3, 1943. They were ALEXANDER D. GOODE, Jewish Rabbi; REV. GEORGE L. FOX, Methodist Minister; REV. CLARK V. POLING, Dutch Reformed Minister; and FATHER JOHN P. WASHINGTON, Roman Catholic Priest.
~Given by the Poling Family.
When the ship was torpedoed by a German U-Boat, the Chaplains passed out life jackets and helped others into the lifeboats, but when the life jackets were gone, they removed their own jackets and gave them to others. As the Dorchester was sinking, the four Chaplains were seen with locked arms and singing hymns.
To place flowers contact Bette Renshaw (717-263-3660)

Offering Envelopes Due to supply chain and the inability to add employees at the rate necessary has created a slow draw on production and shipping the envelope company is forced to suspend the production of the remaining supply of your February envelopes. The offering envelopes will resume and be delivered by the first Sunday in March. Please record your envelope number and use a regular envelope with the number and your name written on it during February so we can keep an accurate recording of giving. Thank you!
