Announcements…* We will have prayer request inserts that will be included in the Celebrate bulletins for you to complete if you would like to add a name to the prayer list. Please add any requests and either drop them in the offering plate or give them to me following worship, or you may email them to me directly. * Community Cares, Project Share, and Safe Harbor are again accepting donations, so we will be placing a basket outside near our welcome table each week and you may place your donations in it, and we will see that the items get delivered. Items that are most needed include: Safe Harbor – linens, sheets, towels, pillowcases, washcloths, personal care items, non-perishable food items, diapers, wipes; Community Cares – adult socks and underwear, travel-size toiletries, coats and winter clothing items, blankets; Project Share – non-perishable food items. A complete list of needed items will be in the bulletin. THANK YOU for your previous support of these ministries — and THANK YOU for your continued support, especially during the pandemic, when these vital organizations in our community need our support more than ever! * We are also partnering again with St. Paul Enola to make Lutheran World Relief School Kits for the upcoming year, so that students in areas hit with disaster or poverty can have what they need to begin school. We are collecting supplies to drop off to St. Paul; they are due at the church no later than September 6. Items that are needed include:
Dear Siblings in Christ, I pray that you are well and that you enjoyed your week! Our forecast for this coming Sunday is calling for rain showers (60 % chance) and a high of 77 degrees, so we will keep watching the extended forecast for Sunday morning. We will plan to gather outdoors (in our new location in front of the church) at 9:30 a.m., unless it is raining and then I will post worship for you to watch later in the day. As a reminder, Sister Davia and I will confer Saturday morning to determine whether to meet outside or hold virtual worship based on the heat index and forecast. We will send an email out after Noon on Saturday and will also put a message on the church voice mail around the same time. You may call the church at 717-245-2475 for a recorded message regarding how we will be worshiping on Sunday.
